Publisher's Summary

Featured title on PBS's The Great American Read in 2018

The orphaned Jane Eyre has emerged a fiercely independent young woman. As governess at Thornfield Hall, she's found her first real home - though it stands in the shadow of the estate's master, Mr. Rochester, and its haunted halls ring with maniacal laughter. For even the grandest houses have secrets.

As much a story about defying convention as it is about coming-of-age, Jane Eyre remains one of the most beloved novels in the English language. Both Gothic and Victorian in its influence and scope, it captures one woman's determination to live life on her own terms - choosing courage over fear, while finding power in love and compassion.

Revised edition: Previously published as Jane Eyre, this edition of Jane Eyre (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

I find time to listen

I'm nearly 70 years old and I confess I'd never read Jane Eyre before. I now know what I was missing. She'll go with me now and she'll make a fine companion.

Perfect match for story and narrator!

I couldn't have been happier with any other narrator for this book. I can't imagine being made a fan of a narrator, but I can't get enough of Susan Ericksen's voice!

Amazing Performance

The narrator did a fantastic job in bringing these characters to life. The story itself is great. But overall what I fell in love with the most was the Performance of the narrator Susan Ericksen.

Yes...it is a classic for a reason!

I have always loved the spirited Jane Eyre. Who overcame the difficulties of her childhood to be a spirited self made woman who even at a young age could stand up to and love the intimidating Mr. Rochester. She was able to stand-up for what was right when Mr. Rochester and part of herself was tempted to do otherwise. And, of course, there is a happy if more sweet than bitter ending. That said, I love this version with Susan Ericksen's narration captures the nuances of the character Jane Eyre, as well as gives voices to all the other characters in the book.....an ensemble cast with one set of vocal chords. Well worth listening to again and again.

A very well read, enticing novel.

I quite enjoyed this novel. I read the first half in text and listened to the second half on audible. I had a preference to listening to it as it at times is a slow read with the verbiage and french language I was unfamiliar with.

There was nothing to dislike… I was in eager anticipation the entire read and never wished that any portion move more quickly so as to get to the next heartening part. Ms Ericksen’s rendition was quite perfect and I felt every emotion as she narrated each sentence. My heart was stirred!

Excellent naration.

A true classic. Never read the book, only seen the film. To listen to the book is spellbinding.
