The Eyre Report #3
My third check in for my reading project of Jane Eyre. Now three weeks in, my goal being 70 pages a week, I have just crossed over the 210 page line. This report was due on the blog this past Sunday and I don’t know how I forgot… but yeah. I forgot.
Pages 141 – 210 reveals Jane and Rochester staring to get to know one another. There is the fire in his bedroom (I am still confused about that one) and Jane rushes in and saves his life which he is overly grateful…. and then the next day…
gone. (Please don’t let him be bipolar….. I dealt with that in Wuthering Heights with Kathryn and I was about to kill her myself in the end of that one!)
Then we move on to the fact that Rochester likes to party PARTY and he is gone for what is it, like two three weeks, hanging with friends about ten miles away which in this time, is like being in another country! When he does return, he brings the party with him and then all those people proceed to stay at his house for the next two weeks… (so odd… I would go nuts having company that long!)
Of course, now enters Miss Ingram. Some hot mama from another family who despite her loveliness, her lovely singing voice,tallness, gorgeous hair, AND her talent at a piano… still remains single.
I instantly do not like her.
Next to Imgram (I can not recall her first name right now… Jane looks plain. Plain Jane. I mean, seriously, Jane’s hair will never do what Imgram’s does….
To conclude my recap here – I am now beyond an odd fortune teller part where if I am getting that right… is Mt Rochester (and what sort of insecurity is that???? Spying on his guests!) and if it wasn’t him.. then I misunderstood that whole part.
I leave you with this…. I am into the book. I have another recap due on Sunday – pager 210 – 280. I did not have time today to put up a rating but know I would not put it down now…. I am invested and now I have to know what will happen with the snarly lipped Imgram and the shy plain Jane.
