    Jane Eyre was an orphan. She was poorly treated by her aunt and cousins. Her aunt wanted to get rid of her so she was sent to Lowood Institution - a charity school for orphaned girls. She grew up well-educated and well-mannered. She started working as a governess and fell in love with her master - Edward Rochester who has a dark and secret past. The story beyond this point is so intriguing and captivating that I couldn't refrain myself from readi...

    Two years ago, I was able to read the unabridged story of Jane Eyre. I fell in love with the story right away and I've finished reading it within a week without skipping any parts or pages; I even consider it number one on my favorite classic books. I also got to watched several movie adaptations of this novel: from the latest 2011 version, 1983 and yes — even the 1973 version. That shows how much I admire this classic. When I saw that there's ...

    [Thank you to Udon Entertainment and Netgalley for providing my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.]Growing up Jane Eyre was one of the first english books that I've ever read, of coure it took me 2 months to read it because i didn't understand much at the time, but still loved it nonetheless [i reread it a couple of years ago so now i fully get it don't worry haha ], so this book still holds a special place in my heart.With that being said,...

    I have to confess something here. I read Jane Eyre five or six years ago. I was so excited, because the character of the same name was always advertised to me as a strong, determined and inspiring woman, and I was curious to see that in a classic other than Pride & Prejudice, one of the first ones I had read when I was young. So I borrowed it from the library, read it, disliked it, gave it a 2-star rating on Goodreads. But shortly after finishing...

    I really enjoyed manga adaption of Jane Eyre. I have red this story so long ago, I forgot why I have stopped reading at around 80% mark. (view spoiler)[ It seemed to me that Jane was hellbent on rejecting Mr. Rochester because he was too perfect for her. Once he lost his eyes and his hand, she has given him her approval. That didn't set well with me but so are the ways of Classics... (hide spoiler)]The language is bit odd and I'd not suggest to a...

    Read all my reviews on Believe it or not, but I only recently became accustomed with the complete story of Jane Eyre. For some reason, it was completely glossed over in school and I never read it, or even watched a movie. The crazy wife in the attic part, however, I was aware of, as I think is everyone, whether they want to or not. I’ve been reading the manga classics as they are being published and overall I...

    Estupendísima adaptación manga de uno de mis libros favoritos de toda la vida de Dior. Perfecto como primera aproximación a este maravilloso clásico o como disfrute para los fans que quieran volver a disfrutar con la historia de Jane Eyre y el señor Rochester, ya que, para ser una adaptación en este formato, es bastante fiel al libro. No tiene tantos puntos de humor como la adaptación de Orgullo y prejuicio pero tiene un dibujo que a mí m...

    I've always been in love with Jane Eyre story, I've read the book twice, since I'm here in GR. The manga seems to be a little childish, but lovely. Better than other that I've read some weeks ago. Very enjoyable manga.
  • Jayne
    Jane Eyre has always been one of my favourites. When I discovered that there was a manga version I had to read it!This version is wonderful. It still captures the essence of all the characters so well. Even though it's obviously shorter and less detailed than the original novel it doesn't lose its 'classic' feel. It's a great starter for those who would be interested in reading the story of Jane Eyre but feel intimidated to delve into classic lit...
  • Carmen
    I love the Brontes, both Charlotte and Emily so I am always happy to revisit either Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre ( two of the most important books in my life) I enjoyed this one a lot.I liked the adaptation and the graphics, and the atmsophere.The only thing I don't like us Bertha Mason's depiction- I think she is such an interesting character- her silenced story should at least be referenced. Really enjoyable though
  • Silvia
    Como todos los de esta colección, muy bien adaptado.

    I want to thank Netgalley for providing me an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.This manga was a very good surprise! I haven't read Jane Eyre, but I will definitely do it now. On that account I cannot state about the faithful adaptation of the story. What can I say is that the storyline was logical, I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I am not a huge fan of happy endings but I was hoping that Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester would end...
  • Heather
    Wow. I'm pleasantly surprised. I read Jane Eyre several years ago, and I enjoyed it. It wasn't my favorite classic of all time, but I enjoyed reading it and could understand the importance of in in history. I'm totally shocked that they were able to break down the classic into a well-read manga. I don't know if I would go so far as to say that you would be able to read this instead of the classic for a class test/essay, but, the manga classic get...

I think that the best way to describe this, is as a wonderful piece of creativity and talent, I applaud the genius mind that decided to combine classic books with mangas, the concept is amazing and such an unique way to revisit dear old classics or to make them easier and lighter for younger audiences. The art is beautiful a...
  • Carla Johnson-Hicks
    I love any book that brings the classics to new generations. With this Manga graphic novel we see Jane Eyre still relatively true to the original but told in a style that will interest middle grade and even YA readers. The story of the little orphan girl who is so mistreated, gets sent off to school and then takes a job as governess for the ward of the reclusive Mr. Rochester is still there. We see Jane and Rochester fall in love, even though his...

    Manga Classics: Jane Eyre First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. I just really love these classic, thankfully I still have lots of them to read. There is just no easier way to dive into these classics than reading them in this form. It may not be as in depth as reading the original but still, it's easy to read and enjoy them. It also really motivates me to read the actual book after I read the manga. I really loved the sto...

    Netgalley #19Many thanks go to Udon and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.This is the third Manga Classic I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing. This one was another great one. For some reason I wasn’t crazy about Rochester’s rendering. I realize he’s not an attractive fellow, but his profile just had no detail. Again, the entire plot is included here. Nothing important is left out. Sometimes I get l...

    I was auto-approved by the publisher Udon Entertainment through NetGalley to review this title.Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre holds a special place in my heart and on my permanent bookshelf and I’m glad Manga Classics decided to turn it into a comic.The artwork beautifully captures the atmosphere of the story and emphasizes the remoteness and isolation of the characters.Overall, I enjoyed this comic tremendously and would recommend it to manga...
  • Heena Rathore P.
    The only Manga Classic I've read so far that made me want to read the original classic.
  • Liz* Fashionably Late
    Jane Eyre is a wonderful story and while I really like manga, I was not sure it could capture the essence of the characters and the whole plot. But it did. An amazing job was done portraying the enigmatic Rochester and Jane’s pure heart. The artwork is on point and I think the manga works really well for those who haven’t read the original story yet.Also, I think it’s a great way to bring the classics to new generations.

  • Kailey (BooksforMKs)
    Jane Eyre has always been one of my favorite books, so I had high expectations for this manga adaptation, and I was not disappointed! Jane is beautifully portrayed, and all the complexity and grace of her character is reflected in her appearance, her facial expressions, and in every bit of dialogue. Simply brilliant! I loved her pretty dresses, and her fierce spirit and sweetness absolutely pours off the page! Condensing such a complex and deep s...

    ** Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of Jane Eyre the manga in exchange for an honest review **3.75/5 stars.Jane Eyre adapts very well into a manga. This particular re-telling is extremely accurate and true to the original story. We follow a woman named Jane throughout the majority of her adolescence into her adult life. Jane's story is initially an unfortunate one, she is being raised by an aunt who despises her and is qui...

    Thank you Netgalley for an advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.Who wouldn't want to plunge into a graphic novel remake of the classics that starts this melodramatically graciously...I can't say I like the original story too much, but this version certainly made me smile. Those eyes and lips, those embraces and hand gestures. Fantastic! And entertaining.That being said, this was my first manga and I found it eye twisting. I kept reading...
