Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte

Finally! For some reason, this book takes me forEVER to read! It's a good book but the language is a little intense.  I love it, though.  I've read it before, but it's been a while.  One thing I note in books from this era that I've read is how the women are so ... I don't even know what word I'd use.  They see something they want, but because of unwritten rules of whatever, society or what-have-you, they hold back.  They keep to themselves and prefer suffering in misery.  I hate that.  I do.  I'm a if-you-want-something-do-what-you-can-to-get-it kind of girl.  None of this suffering in silence garbage.  (lol)  It's good this book ends well, I suppose.  ;) It truly is a book for the romantic at heart, though, so if you're one of those type and haven't read it yet, do.
