I read this one long time ago so this re-read was like the first time. This novel can be annoying and controversial in the treatment/position of women in that era; religion; and the cheesy romance we see. But maybe I love it because of that, a general overview of the era. Jane was different, trying to be genuine, independent even in that historical circumstance. Still she lived in the era, so you will see those traces. I still loved it 5⭐️

Gissy Live these editions.I read the edition in the center. Still want some other pretty editions.

Maybe not too spooky but it has elements of supernatural creatures/elements. This book is also sad because there are traces of insanity and that end? So sad😢I liked the story of these persons spending some days in this apparently haunted house. I saw some psychological aspects and maybe that is why I liked it. The tv series more than an adaptation is a version of the book, so different from the book but I‘m enjoying it. 3.8⭐️

Ruthiella I think I liked the psychological aspects of this book best. It makes me ask what is real and what is imagined? 1y
AmyG The old movie, from the early 60‘s is so good. 1y
