The writing wasn't the best, but it was an enjoyable re-imagining of the story. ( )
  keindi | Jan 23, 2016 |
Based on the much loved ÛÏJane Eyre‰Û this contemporary retelling of Charlotte Bronte‰Ûªs classic is an enjoyable read. At first I wondered if I would like this book as ‰ÛÏJane Eyre‰Û has always been a favourite of mine, but thankfully Lindner stays fairly true to the original story's mood and themes. However, while Nico Rathburn, a famous rock star, makes a worthy Mr Rochester, Jane seems rather old-fashioned and lacks the fire that Jane Eyre had. Also, their romance feels rushed and, at times, the chemistry between them forced and unconvincing.

Whilst not as good as the original, ‰ÛÏJane‰Û will appeal to romantics and introduce a new generation of readers to a classic love story. ( )

Not terribly written, but disappointing from a moral perspective. Way too much language (numerous f-bombs). I stopped reading halfway through the book when, after confessing their love for each, Jane and R sleep together (rather than getting engaged as they did in the original Jane Eyre). Eugh. ( )
