Penguin Classics: Jane Eyre Audio Book

Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, read by Juliet Stevenson


'Do you think, because I am poor, obscure,

plain and little, I am soulless and heartless?

You think wrong!'


Despite her early years in the hostile household of her aunt, Mrs Reed, where Jane's passionate temper saw her cruelly punished, and in the school at Lowood under the rigid rule of the fanatical Mr Brocklehurst, Jane Eyre emerges into womanhood with spirit and high principles. Then, as governess at Thornfield Hall, Jane meets the enigmatic Mr Rochester and embarks on a tempestuous relationship that eventually brings both transformation and emotional fulfilment.
