the art is gorgeous and that's probably the best thing i can say about this. the story itself removes a lot of the elements of the original novel, and Jane and Edward's relationship only seems worse in modern context. I did like her relationship with Adele though. If it were an original graphic novel it might be better, but as an adaptation of "Jane Eyre" it just doesn't work.

This book removes all of Jane's wit (which makes reading the original a pleasure) and leaves only the slim plot of her inexplicable attraction to the abusive Rochester. Updating it to a modern era makes the inequities and cruelties of their relationship even more evident. It won't take you long to read it, but might turn newer readers away from the rewards of the original.

Boooooooooo, this is Jane Eyre given the Cinderella treatment and heinously watered down. Why does Jane Eyre need to be a skinny blonde New Yorker? NO.

This book has beautiful illustrations and is a modern day re-telling of Jane Eyre. I loved the different take on the story and the sweet relationship Jane has with the daughter. A great read!

It is a stylish retelling of Jane Eyre but it is both more conventional and better than the original. The artwork is fabulous, and the story focuses more on the daughter than the original novel, which is interesting. Jane is a funky art student and the romance is more contemporary than the original where she's pretty much bullied into the marriage that never takes place.... Anyway, it's not an exact retelling, and that's a good thing!
