As an orphaned child, Jane Eyre is first cruelly abused by her aunt, then cast out and sent to a charity school. Though she meets with further abuse, she receives an education and eventually takes a job as a governess at the estate of Edward Rochester. Jane and Rochester begin to bond, but his dark moods trouble her. When Jane uncovers the terrible secret Rochester has been hiding, she flees and finds temporary refuge at the home of St. John Rivers. Charlotte Bronte’s classic tale of morality and social criticism takes on an entirely new life in this Manga Classic adaptation of Jane Eyre.


 My Thoughts

I believe this manga publication will draw readers would otherwise not pick up a copy of this classic. 

The illustrations are lovely and the content follows the story well. 

This is a coming of age story. Jane Eyre is orphaned and we see her grow into a strong independent woman. She finds a home as a governess at Thornfield Hall, where the estate’s master is Mr. Rochester. As we learn of the secrets, we see she responds with determination and love.
