Imagine my excitement when I found out that there is an upcoming Hollywood movie based on one of my favorite classic novels, Jane Eyre. I love, love Jane Eyre! It’s one of those books that has a personal impact in my life. Aside from Jane herself, Mr. Rochester is one of the most endearing characters in the book. He and Mr. Darcy (from Pride and Prejudice) are two of my favorite male characters in classic literature. And I think both of them are alike in some ways – aloof, wealthy, but who nevertheless fall for the strong-willed yet financially-challenged girl. But it’s not the cliche love story that I love the most about Jane Eyre. It’s the fact that the story has that air of mystery and intrigue in it. This was what initially attracted me to the book. Mr. Darcy is like that as well – mysterious and intriguing but eventually he’d win you over.
