So disappointing One of the reasons I love Jane Eyre is because it is so virtuous no erotic scenes between her and Mr Rochester whatsoever I think Charlotte Bronte would be ashamed of this book angry even Though Sheila Kohler does seem to follow at least want to follow Bronte in great descriptive detail a lot of this seems way too contrived for meSeems like Kohler s idea was to spice up an old classic with eroticism to make it appealing to a wider audience What a disgrace As a result of this I did not finish the book Read about 13 Claiming Her up an old classic with eroticism to make it appealing to a wider audience What a disgrace As a result of this I did not finish the book Read about 13

READ & DOWNLOAD å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB â Sheila Kohler SUMMARY Becoming Jane Eyre A Novel ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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

READ & DOWNLOAD å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB â Sheila Kohler SUMMARY Becoming Jane Eyre A Novel ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB The year is 1846 In a cold parsonage on the gloomy Yorkshire moors a family seems cursed with disaster A mother and two children dead A father sick without fortune and hardened by the loss of his two most beloved family members A son destroyed by alcohol and opiates A. I read this book in an airport expecting that it would be standard light and frothy airport fare Strangely it took me right to early Victorian London so that I looked up from the book and had to remember I wasn t there This book is Charlotte Bronte in glimpses in word snapshots It is such a uiet book uiet like those women who are mad but are hiding all of the anger behind a frozen smile It is like sitting in a very uiet room and hearing the rustle of people s skirts as they walk or the sound of the wind outside and looking at the faces of your family every now and then as you read or write But in all of this silence you can hear all around an intense whispering of words which are only alive on the unspoken page Refreshing to me was Kohler s ability to create an atmosphere that never hinted by any means to be other than Bronte s time I remember watching Somewhere in Time where the guy is able to visit the past by a sort of mind manipulation but if on his journey to the past he sees any reminder of the present he will instantly be recalled to his own time In the end he finds a penny in his pocket from the present day and it ruins everything It seems like many historical fiction writers can t help but throw a 2012 penny into their picture of the past either overemphasizing famous names and news stories of the time or trying too hard to write dialogue of the past but making silly mistakes by throwing in modern collouialisms How did Kohler avoid doing this I don t know I felt that she painted the real Charlotte somehow Today we remember Charlotte Bronte for her moral courage for her emotional honesty for her passionate intensity But we forget some of the things about Charlotte Bronte s nature that probably perplexed those around her her pride and inability to accept criticism clearheadedly the manner in which her intense emotions probably frightened people off the fact that until she was recognized for her work she was obscure and treated so I am glad that Kohler included these things and made Charlotte s life and struggles real
