Jayne Eyre: The Ws

WHEN I Discovered This Classic
I discovered it in high school.  I may have read it.  Some very specific elements of the plot seemed very familiar.

WHAT Makes It A Classic
150+ years after it was written, it is still being discovered and enjoyed by new readers.  The writing is excellent, and the issues that Brontё deals with are still present in society. 

WHY I Chose to Read It
I wanted to step out of my comfort zone with a romance.

WILL It Stay A Classic
Without a doubt, it will stay a classic.  With all the movie adaptations, new readers will continue to find it.

WHO I’d Recommend It To
Yes, I can imagine men liking the book, but I think Jane would have a special appeal to women.
