Daily Book Meme: Day 10

Day 10 – Favorite classic book

JaneEyre

Can someone define classic? I’m going to use ‘old and almost everyone enjoys’.

Without being certain, I think my main issue with Austen is that she has upper-class problems for her well-to-do protagonists – yes, flay me now, what with what I said about HDM two days ago and now this. With Bronte, I felt a real connection with Jane – I mean, our lives couldn’t be more different, but I liked that she was uncompromising and came from very humble roots. I need to read more Charlotte Bronte, I know. Getting on it…

The only thing I didn’t like was the convenience of killing off her love interest’s wife. Naturally, I rather enjoyed Wide Sargasso Sea…
