Summary

This timeless novel highlights the abuse and neglect that the orphaned Jane Eyre faced while growing up. This story opens with Jane Eyre being shipped off to be cared for by her uncle Mr. Reed who lived at the Gateshead Hall. Her uncle was always kind to her but his wife, Sarah Reed was anything but. Sarah’s son John and Sarah’s two daughters also contributed to Jane’s torment. Jane was excluded from all family activities and found solace only in her books and dolls. One day John knocked her down and she tried to defend herself. This earned her a traumatic lock up in the room where her uncle died. At one point, she thought that she could see his ghost and this so terrified the poor child that an apothecary had to be called in. The kind man advised Sarah Reed to send Jane off to boarding school and she was subsequently sent to Lowood. Seen through Jane’s eyes, Lowood was only marginally better than Gateshead but at least she had friends there. The book will take you way back to the days of bumpy carriage rides and class discrimination. It is also a glimpse into some historical aspects of England centuries ago and the antiquated notions that were held at the time. Charlotte Bronte tells an amazing story about a woman who faces issues of respect in an era when women were not permitted to stand up to society. Eventually Jane finds an employer that supports her but the shadowy and ominous Mr. Rochester, hides a dreadful secret that threatens Jane’s happiness.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and it's narration. It made my usual long, boring, daily commute to work much more tolerable and on occasions not long enough. I wiill search for other titles in the same genre which I find daunting to read but will enjoy being read to.

What a wonderful work done by Elizabeth klett

Shannon Thompson

- Jane Eyre

This classic is given to us by a truly gifted reader, Ms. Elizabeth Klett. Her command of the English language is a wonderful complement to Charlotte Brontë's powerful skills of writing. I have encountered only a handful of readers who bring the written word to life in a thoroughly enjoyable manner. I shall search for other titles that Ms. Klett has read, based entirely on the pleasure derived from her characterizations exclusively. Thank you, thank you for your generosity to listeners everywhere!

Cathrine

- Everdiline

You gave the book life. I read the book before, but while reading along with you Elizabeth, the story took on a whole new meaning and dimension.Thank You.

MICHELLE

Colson

- Error

In chapter 15 there in an error in which she reads: "I must pay a visit to the second story" said by mr rochester, it should read "third story"

Tamels

- Jane eyre

This is a really long book. Several times I stopped the book to read another book because there are times when I tends to drag and gets a bit gloomy. It does however have to twist and turns to it and it is a a beautifully written book.

Sam

- Awesome

Just want to thank you for your contributions and make all these extraordinary novels alive and easily accessible to us in your melodious voice. Thankyou Elizabeth.

I've finally gotten around to reading this classic and am so happy I did. The narrator is really what did it for me. She breathed life into the characters.

Michaela Watson

- Fantastic!

To be honest, I got very behind on my class assignments, and used this to catch up. This was probably the best decision I made. I was able to finish the novel in only a few days and very much enjoyed it.

Kerry Underhill

- Jane Eyre

A wonderful story brought to life by the fantastic narrator. A gentle and emotive Jane with her commanding but not aggressive Mr Rochester was a delight to listen to. Excellent English accent too (I'm English myself), I shall be looking for more titles read by the reader of this version.

Elizabeth Klett's reading is amazing- the voices she uses are distinct, but not contrived or awkward. Her reading made me absorbed in Jane Eyre, and love the book even more. Great work!

Eva

Beautiful, just beautiful production of this book.

Jimmy

- Terrific!

Having missed this book in schooling I decide I should at least listen to this book. Elizabeth's accents, vocal inflections and French acumen for Adele's character brought the story to light. Wonderful recording.

Alyssa

- Wonderful, thank you

I have to read the book for a class I'm taking and found this website quite by accident. This is an excellent reading to Jane Eyre.

I Faye

Love her voice!!

MummyBH

- Beautiful recording

A little too fast for me, but that is being picky. I have never read the book and Elizabeth Klett immersed me in Jane's life. Her character voices were perfect.

Gerard

- Brings the book to life

Listened enraptured to the first three chapters. Can't wait to hear some more.

Dammi Holbourne

- Jane Eyre

I love the way the story is read, so clear and soft, please don't change the reader.

epmason

- Wonderful narration!

I was so impressed with the narration of Elizabeth Klett. She brings every character to life and makes what could have been a dense read easy to understand and fun to listen along to. Thank you, Elizabeth!

Christin

This is an excellent reading of Jane Eyre. Once I started, I found excuses to do household chores while listening.

Aude

- Jane Eyre

Thanks Elizabeth for this beautiful reading of Jane Eyre. Your voice is very sweet and perfect for Jane. At the beginning I was a little surprised by the tone for Rochester's speaking , I felt it was too pompous. But I must acknowledge you did very well the different tones and voices of the characters. I wanted very much to hear the novel in English. I am French and I can tell you the sentences in French (from Adèle and others) are very well enunciated, with a good accent.

Kaitlin

- Go Lizzy!

I'll listen to anything Elizabeth Klett narrates. Love her.

Nicolas

- Audio

Elizabeth Clet has a BEAUTIFUL voice, great job

George

The reader of this book is amazing. However this book is very depressing to listen to. I got to chapter 29 and I could not listen to it anymore.

The reader did an amazing job at bringing this book to life.

Andy

- Jane Eyre

I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to be reviewing the book or the narrator here, but I just had to go out of my way to compliment the narrator. Awesome job! She brings the story to life. Anyone on the fence about downloading this one, just go for it, you're in for a real treat.

Debra

- Perfect audiobook

I had always had a special love for Jane Eyre ever since i was little. I have seen all the TV adaptations of the novel and was thrilled when i found it in the form of an audiobook here. Jane Eyre is definitely a must read for all the romantic and sensitive souls out there. The reader, Elizabeth Klett was wonderful as always. I enjoyed it a great deal, therefore I recommend it without second thought.

YogaBunny
