Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre"

  • Sep 24, 2009 · 7:30 PM

Come join us and discuss my very favorite novel, "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte. If you have not read it yet, you need to read this book. It is so captivating and marvelous! You will love this book. If you have several free hours to spare, you can also watch any of multiple film adaptations. I watched the 2006 mini-series a few months back and was impressed with it. This will be our fourth Thursday evening discussion. We will meet once per month on a Thursday to discuss a selection that either I choose for the group or a member nominates. We will also meet one Sunday afternoon per month to discuss the novel that we democratically decide upon as a group. Our location is the Panera on Eisenhower, near Briarwood Mall.

    I just finished it last week. Better late than never. It seems very significant but romance is not really my thing.

    Really enjoyed the discussion. It brought back some great memories from reading "Jane Eyre" in college.

    We had a great discussion -- best book club experience I've ever had so far. Everyone had something to contribute with some fascinating thoughts and opinions. There were many excellent questions thrown out that got all thinking deeply about the characters, their thoughts, actions, religious beliefs, class/societal stratification during that era and thier life's circumstances. I've seen a lot of movie adaptations of Jane Erye (I own 6) and this was the first time I actually read the book; I am very glad about it. It's really a great read. Looking forward to the next meeting and discussion. So glad to finally be reading the classics.

    It was fun to have two die hard Jane Eyre fans there.

    And here I was worried we wouldn't have much to discuss about Jane Eyre, was I ever wrong! I am glad that everyone enjoyed this wonderful book at least almost as much as I did back when I first read it!

    I've narrowed down our November Thursday discussion to one of two choices. I will ask those who come tonight to help me decide which one it will be. Either David Leavitt's "The Lost Language of Cranes" or Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita". Both are great; I think you know which one is the quicker, easier read.

    I really would like to be there but Thursday nights do not work for me. I will listen to the book though so I can talk about it later. I am glad Tim will be there.

    This book is also available for free downloading from the Ann Arbor Library website. If you have questions, ask Jonpaul.
