Jane Eyre

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 567 reviews)

Jane Eyre is not your typical romance. It is a story of a woman who struggles with a world in which she doesn't quite fit. Once finished with her schooling, and with no family that really cares of her she strikes out on her own as a governess. Jane Eyre searches for love, someone to care for her, and someone to care for, and finds it in unexpected places. (summary by Kri) (20 hr 36 min)

(4 stars)

I love this book the only thing I wish is that it was read by one person

(4 stars)

While I enjoyed listening to this book and the story is solid, there are some readers who are more difficult to follow than others. There are a couple who are too monotonous to the point that sometimes you're not sure what character is speaking, a couple who read too quietly, and one or two who make mistakes pronouncing words while reading. That being said, there are a few readers who do an excellent job and I wish they could have narrated the whole book.

An Amazing Reading of Jane Eyre

(5 stars)

I have always loved the book Jane Eyre. So I downloaded the audio version to listen to on my Android phone while walking and riding, not really expecting such a beautiful vocal rendering of this much loved novel. So imagine my amazement as I listened to Elizabeth Klett read Jane Eyre to discover such a beautiful reading of the book. It was as if Jane Eyre herself were in the room with me. Ms. Klett's ability to capture the moods of each particular situation was truly amazing. The book came alive as never before! I will be downloading more from this talented reader...

Annoying that this has different readers

(3 stars)

While this is well read by each reader, it's really off setting to hear it from different people.

Catches all the spirit of the story and the humble mind behind it

(5 stars)

I listened to this recording in 2010, and it was my first English audio-book I listened to. Elisabeth Klett's voice left such a spectacular impression that I still have parts of the text that I had to re-listen memorised in the entirety of their sound, as if I would be hearing them in their original form every time I think of them. ["How(!) small ("smooowl!") my portion seemed!" "Blank-shire" "Rochester" "St. John (Sinjhn.)" How do you even look that up?)] This recording is a piece of art worthy of its original, and I am really glad it was the main piece introducing me to English literature.

(3.5 stars)

This book has been difficult to decipher at times, matched up against new words some painted and created objects, people, streets etc within this book. Some which left me in curious, wondering, questioned what is that word. To pause and get the meaning, I procrastinated, captivated and unmoved by any other thought than that of continuing to listen and decipher as I could because I would lose interest and googling while or any means to find the meaning would have distracted or deprived me portions of the story. Ridiculous huh? No, least not to me! Mr Rochester what good man to be with such a genuine and interesting womam, Ms Eyre. Perfect combo.

A book which wakes deep emotions in everyone who reads it.

(5 stars)

The whole book is devoted to Jane Eyre and the people around her. She underwent numerous hardships to pave the path to the such kind of life she was longing for having. Meeting with Mr.Rochester was determining. Having left him one day, she found that no happiness waited for her in life without him. And after their reunion "all the darkness turned to light", even one of his blind eyes began to see a bit. In general, the book teaches us that however the difficulties are, if a person leads an honest life he or she will be rewarded sooner or later.

the outstanding Jane Eyre

(5 stars)

I loved the story!! Jane Eyre is such a compelling female character. She is sooo dedicated to what se loves and finds ways to achieve her dreams no matter what the problem may be. She is fully immersed into the world and is also loving and caring towards to the people that surround her. I also loved Mr. Rochester! He was mysterious but very charming and attractive. He has a strong personality and a full heart. I found the books at times hard to understand, since this is a more varied version of an audiobook, but I still liked it. Really recommend giving it a try
