Rocky McRochester: A "Jane Eyre" Virgin Meets Rochester For The First Time



"But I tell you—and you may mark my words—you will come some day to a craggy pass in the channel, where the whole of life's stream will be broken up into whirl and tumult, foam and noise: either you will be dashed to atoms on crag points, or lifted up and borne on by some master-wave into a calmer current...."

Rocky McRochester sure likes to talk, doesn't he? I'm at approximately 30% with Jane Eyre, and loving every melodramatic minute of it! I can't believe I never read this baby before. As soon as I'm done, I'm rushing out to watch the new film version.

Hi Sherri! I am really enjoying this! (Although I must admit I am looking forward to your version with Jane kicking some buttski...that will be very satisfying!).

I SO need to read this too.

Penelope said...

Hi Juju! This is making me want to read Pride and Prejudice next....another classic I never read! Oops!

I am shocked, SHOCKED, to hear you have never read J.E. before! But lucky you to get to enjoy it now. This is truly one of my absolutely favorite books of all time!

Penelope said...

Hee heeeee heeee...I know, I know, I am a little bit late getting on the Rocky McRochester boat! I am loving it now....last night I read the part with the beeyotchy ladies at the house party, who were rude and beeyotchy while poor Jane hid behind the curtains like a sad little wallflower. Ugh! I want her to KICK SOME ASS!
