Publisher's Summary

Penguin Classics presents Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, adapted for listening and available as a digital audiobook as part of the Penguin English Library series. This abridged version is skillfully read by actress Juliet Stevenson.
"The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself"
Passionate, poetic, and revolutionary, Jane Eyre is a novel of naked emotional power. The story of a defiant, fiercely intelligent woman who refuses to accept her appointed place in society - and instead finds love on her own terms - has become famous as one of the greatest romances ever written. But it is also a brooding Gothic mystery, a profound depiction of character, and a transformative work of the imagination.
Part of a collection of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives, the Penguin English Library series features affordable, collectable, quality productions that are perfect for on-the-go listening.

Just Brilliant

Would you consider the audio edition of Jane Eyre to be better than the print version?

It was always a favourite story but, listening to Juliet Stevenson read it was just wonderful. She brought the characters and the scenery to life and I listened to it in one session just couldn't turn it off.

Have you listened to any of Juliet Stevenson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I'll be looking out for other books she's read on audible

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A beautiful love story
