I enjoyed this as much as, or more than, any other audiobook I've ever listened to. High praise, but it's true. It's a perfect marriage of writer and narrator. The story itself is enthralling: Jane is a feisty heroine, a survivor with a difference: she's adaptable and assertive and completely without the sense of self-pity that usually accompanies the "survivor" label. The novel has everything: staggeringly well-written scenes, totally believable characters, haunting atmosphere, beautiful descriptions of the natural world.
Lucy Scott, as far as I can tell, hasn't done much in the audiobook line, but she's no novice. She's the actress who played Charlotte Lucas in the "Colin Firth" version of "Pride and Prejudice" in 1995. Her performance here is absolutely flawless, at times heartbreaking and at times giddy with excitement and joy. A wonderful listen. Don't miss it. Really. Download it and listen to it even if you think you hate Victorian fiction. You won't after you hear this one.

Lucy Scott is a marvel as Jane Eyre. This is one of the best-read classic novels I've ever heard on audiobook. Scott brings the characters of Charlotte Bronte to life, especially Eyre. The novel itself is a timeless mixture of romance, psychological portrait, and social commentary. I can't recommend this one highly enough.

This was an absolutely amazing listen. I've never read the book, and this was a delight to listen to. I even played it while I was on the treadmill! The reader's voice was absolutely perfect.
