Becoming Jane Eyre A Novel

Free read ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Sheila Kohler Free download Becoming Jane Eyre A Novel æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Nd three strong intelligent young women reduced to poverty and spinsterhood with nothing to save them from their fate Nothing that is except their remarkable literary talentSo unfolds the story of the Brontë sisters At its center are Charlotte and the writing of Jane. My notes on this book have been gathering dust for about 3 months now and looking over them it really just boils down to wow this was a terrible book Seemingly anachronistic details bizarre masturbation scenes out of nowhere proto Betty Friedan dialogue unbelievable amounts of melodrama confusing chronological jumps characters who magically show up important characters who die off screen with little fanfare and character development that makes no sense Kohler beats you over the head with the parallels to Jane Eyre so much so that it gets very annoying very fast Yes we ve all read the novel why on earth is Kohler essentially retelling it here Why would you be reading this book if you haven t read Jane Eyre Telling not showing is how Kohler operates and the book suffers as a result

Free read Becoming Jane Eyre A Novel

Free read ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Sheila Kohler Free download Becoming Jane Eyre A Novel æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Eyre Delicately unraveling the connections between one of fiction's most indelible heroines and the remarkable woman who created her Sheila Kohler's Becoming Jane Eyre will appeal to fans of historical fiction and of course the millions of readers who adore Jane Eyre. A Slow Start But A Strong Finish The adjectives I had written down as I was reading this were not very flattering in fact they were not flattering at all This novel about the Brontes seemed to have little new or interesting information to add to what little I already knew about this famous family At first I found it somewhat dull it seemed little than a rehash of a Bronte biography but something happened between page 146 and 195 and by the last page I found that I really liked it I liked the way Sheila Kohler pieced together key elements from the Bronte sisters lives and the way they manifested themselves into their writings I ve read Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights and had very different opinions of the two books I loved Jane Eyre and really disliked Wuthering Heights But I think I might have had a different perception of Wuthering Heights if I had read this book first I recently read Daphne by Justine Picardie Which was predominately about Daphne Du Maurier but also has a strong flavor of Bronte as it s set during the period she was writing her biography of Branwell Bronte After finishing Daphne I began reading The Infernal World of Branwell Bronte by Daphne Du Maurier so some of the family s history was known to me I wouldn t recommend this to someone who s not at all familiar with the Brontes I m not a huge Bronte fan but I ve had Villet by Charlotte Bronte on my to be read pile for a while After finishing this I m looking forward to reading it sooner rather than later I think this would be good to read immediately after Jane Eyre and I think it would make a good book club selection Certainly Bronte fans will enjoy this
