Item description for Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte & Amanda Root...

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.' Bronte's infamous Gothic novel tells the story of orphan Jane, a child of unfortunate circumstances. Raised and treated badly by her aunt and cousins and eventually sent away to a cruel boarding school, it is not until Jane becomes a governess at Thornfield that she finds happiness. Meek, measured, but determined, Jane soon falls in love with her brooding and stormy master, Mr Rochester, but it is not long before strange and unnerving events occur in the house and Jane is forced to leave Thornfield to pursue her future.

More About Charlotte Bronte & Amanda Root

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Charlotte Bronte lived from 1816 to 1855. In 1824 she was sent away to school with her four sisters and they were treated so badly that their father brought them home to Haworth in Yorkshire. The elder two sisters died within a few days and Charlotte and her sisters Emily and Anne were brought up in the isolated village. They were often lonely and loved to walk on the moors. They were all great readers and soon began to write small pieces of verse and stories.

Once Charlotte's informal education was over she began to work as a governess and teacher in Yorkshire and Belgium so that she could add to the low family income and help to pay for her brother Branwell's art education. Charlotte was a rather nervous young woman and didn't like to be away from home for too long. The sisters began to write more seriously and published poetry in 1846 under male pen names - there was a lot of prejudice against women writers. The book was not a success and the sisters all moved on to write novels. Charlotte's best-known book, Jane Eyre, appeared in 1847 and was soon seen as a work of genius. Charlotte really knew how to make characters and situations come alive.

Charlotte's life was full of tragedy, never more so than when her brother Branwell and sisters Emily and Anne died within a few months in 1848/49. She married her father's curate in 1854 but died in 1855, before her fortieth birthday.

Charlotte Bronte was born in 1816 and died in 1855.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jane Eyre?

Excellent rendition  Jun 2, 2008
Amanda Root does an excellent job of bringing the story to life. She seems to truly understand the message Charlotte Bronte communicates in her superb dialogue. This is my favorite audio CD. Amanda Root's telling of the story does not sound like someone reading from a book, but rather like someone living a life. I highly recommend this audio book.
Excellent reading  Nov 6, 2007
I've never been an audiobook-ophile, but during a recent trial subscription to xm radio I've had the chance to hear books in the car and have become a fan.

I was enjoying this particular book in their "Classic" timeslot, but kept missing episodes, so I indulged in the purchase. This is a great reading; the actress gives vivid and nuanced performances of all the characters, bringing out much that I missed in my visual read of the book.
A professional, dramatic production which makes for one of the best audio versions available  Dec 8, 2005
Amanda Root's rendition of Charlotte Bronte's classic comes to life in unabridged audio format, and is a highly recommended pick for two distinct audiences: adults who wish to recall Bronte's talents and pick up new nuances from a well-done audio reading by a real pro, and young adults who are reluctant readers but avid listeners, who will find this complete classic on cd provides unparalleled opportunity to find meaning in Bronte's words. Amanda Root has many TV and film credits to her name, including parts in many Shakespearean dramas: this background lends to a professional, dramatic production which makes for one of the best audio versions available.
