Audible Editor Reviews

Flo Gibson brings dramatic intensity and an intimate tone to her performance of Charlotte Brontë’s 1847 novel, Jane Eyre.
The title character is an orphan raised by her cruel aunt. After a trying experience at boarding school, she falls in love with Rochester only to have their potential marriage thwarted by a dangerous secret that leads to her temporary downfall. Critics have since cited a modern sensibility in Brontë’s exploration of female identity and class relations.
With her confiding, raspy voice, Gibson draws listeners toward her in her portrayal as the title character in this classic.

The narrator didn't suite me so well

I really love the book Jane Eyre and I do think that Flo Gibson (the narrator) does a good job with it. She's good at capturing each character, the mood, etc. However, I personally did not enjoy her voice so well. She has a really low, deep voice and she sounds very bitter while reading this book. Perhaps it's because the character Jane in the book is supposed to be a bitter character and she is telling the story in first person. But I still didn't like Flo Gibson's voice. I like listening to pretty, melodic voices. That's just my personal preference. But since, as of now, this is the only unabridged reading of Jane Eyre on audible.com right now, I still highly recommend it. If the narrator's voice doesn't bother you, I think you would give it 5 stars.

Jane Eyre

I enjoyed this book- it is a great escape!
My memories of reading it as a girl were re-lived.
The sound quality was not good though, and in future I will only get books that are in the highest sound quality-,
