Most people are familiar with the story of Jane Eyre, the mousey governess who falls in love with the master of Thornfield Hall while his mad wife rants and raves in the attic. But to appreciate the complex issues that Charlotte Brontë addresses, it’s necessary to listen with care – Jane Eyre challenged the conventions of womanhood and marriage as well as subtly highlighting the racist sentiments of the day.
With all this in mind, Amanda Root gives a polished reading full of understanding of the text. She lingers long on the imagery that conveys the idea of women as prisoners to convention and cleverly develops Jane’s character through the stages of her life that see her transformed from an angry little girl to a woman of independent means and ideas. Classy budget CD label Naxos AudioBooks have produced an unrivalled unabridged edition, beautifully packaged and easy to use.
