Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre - Michael Mason, Charlotte Brontë I read it and was so annoyed with it that I could barely finish it. It's a morality play, pure and simple, and while I can usually handle morality plays disguised as novels ("Sense and Sensibility," for example), the reading is easier when it contains a sense of humor.

I thought Jane Eyre lacked any sense of humor, and was one heavy-handed moral lesson after another. Maybe I was in a bad mood when I read this, but I couldn't help but like the crazy Mrs. Rochester the best of all of them.
