1. Jane Eyre
Jane's childhood is tough. Raised by her harsh aunt with her horrid cousins, she is sent to boarding school. We see her suffer losing a dear friend and the next time we see her, she is eighteen years old, looking for a job as a governess. She is then called up to teach a young French girl at Thornfield. When she gets there, she falls instantly in love with the owner, Mr Rochester.... and a perplexing mystery. Strange things are going on as maniacal laughter is heard from the attic and house attendents are attacked. The answer to the mystery is shocking.
This book gripped me from beginning to end. I was instantly swept into Jane's terrifying world of love and betrayl. Her story was captivating, and I was anxious to find out who was hiding in the attic. This is a mix of romance and mystery, a perfect blend. However, the ending didn't feel as satisfying as the rest of the book, as it was a bit predicatable. Apart from that an amazing book!
I would suggest this story to more confident readers, but I suppose most readers on Movellas are confident. You do have to concentrate as the vocabulary is quite old-fashioned; it is a classic, after all. However, it's so worth it to experiance this spell-binding story. I highly recommend it!
