Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » This suffers from being too well known, too much an examination text, but it's worth going back to read the story of young Jane's incarceration in the red room, and her rebellious walks up to the attics of Thornfield Hall where she looks longingly over the countryside, wishes for a larger and more exciting life than she can have and hears for the first time the diabolical chuckles of the madwoman imprisoned there. Review by Pat Barker, Booker Prize-winning author of 'Regeneration Trilogy'. (Kirkus UK)
