Reviews for Jane Eyre


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2006 Fall
Plot point follows plot point in these fast-paced adaptations. With scant space allotted for character development or setting, the tales seem to be little more than a collection of elaborate coincidences. [cf2]Jane Eyre[cf1] holds up best. [cf2]Les Miserables[cf1] is simply too large for such a brief treatment, and Martin's propensity for choppy sentences makes a hash of [cf2]Oliver Twist[cf1]. [Review covers these Stepping Stone Book Classic titles: [cf2]Jane Eyre[cf1], [cf2]Great Expectations[cf1], [cf2]Oliver Twist[cf1], and [cf2]Les Miserables[cf1].] Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
