The Jane Eyre Challenge - Part 16

So the grapes have reached the end of the second section of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre.  They are on the home stretch.  How far are you?


The Housemate has finished reading Jane Eyre.  Overall, he enjoyed it.

Well done, grapes.  You inspired a person to read.

However, just because they've lost the race (which I always hoped they would) they're not going to stop abridging and adapting the novel. 

Although to anyone who is very naughtily reading the grapes and NOT reading Charlotte Brontë's wonderful book, I say: Do not trust the grapes.  They are totally skimming over important bits, cutting characters and have little understanding of subtext.  In some cases.  In others, they're all with the subtext.  Did you see what they did to Grape Helen?  She's one of the most important characters in the novel and they just swept her aside with a cough.  Because it was funnier that way.  Bad, bad grapes. I guess what I'm trying to say is, as I've mentioned before, if you've not read the novel yet, READ THE NOVEL READ IT READ IT DO IT NOW.

And now, on with the grapes.  As usual, please click below, or look below, depending how you are viewing this post.  Thank you.

Grape Rochester explains why he got married.

It is still difficult to strangle a grape.
