It's the first original masterwork I've ever read. I got the book at age of 13, if I read it at that time, I would be attracted by the beautiful loving episodes. But now, I don't think it's a charming story.
Jane Eyre's childhood was miserable, bein g treated badly by almost everyone aroundher. Of course there was warmth given by her teacher and friends, just like other stories do, which made Jane braver to face the world independently. Afterwards she met Mr. Rochester, her Mr.Right, and fell in love with him irresistible.
Then the story totally changes to a vulgar love story, I can't see how Jane grows up to have lofty ideals, it seems that her childhood experience makes no effort to her adult life. It's not a story to tell you that women can be great independent, but to tell you that fate means a lot in a person's life.
I don't believe in fate and I don't think the ending should be ideal, it's off the truly life.
I don't like it, in a way, a perfect story. But we translate Jane Eyre to 简爱, loving simply, that's amazing.
