Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“While Jane herself remains much the same, the supernatural additions prove highly amusing, turning the gothic elements of the original up to eleven while preserving the story’s post-Victorian coming-of-age conventions. Despite her whimsical and irreverent modifications, Erwin displays great affection for Brontë and her characters; the undeniable spark between Erwin’s Jane and Rochester is made all the more delightful by Jane’s plucky fearlessness in the face of evil. With the possible exception of purists, fans of Jane Eyre will find much to love, with moments of laugh-out-loud hilarity; horror fans unfamiliar with the original will also be pleased, though they’ll miss out on some of the comic nuance.” Publishers Weekly
“No stranger to paranormal fiction, Erwin raises the bar for the next generation of ‘monster classics’…It’s a ghastly new spin on the familiar, page-turning classic Jane Eyre. Poignant and charming, Jane could give Buffy a run for her money. Unlike Seth Grahame-smith’s novel but disjointed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (the zombies were an awkward insertion), Erwin seems to be channeling Brontë and the monsters are a seamless addition to the text. The story takes an unexpected turn towards the end, keeping readers entranced…Erwin’s gripping revision of a well-loved classic is enthusiastically recommended for all.” Library Journal (starred review) 
“This story is very entertaining and funny and pays tribute to the original classic. British actress Rosalyn Landor’s tells a great story and narrates with great animation.” SoundCommentary.com

Author Bio: Charlotte Brontë

Author Bio: Charlotte Brontë

Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855) grew up in the isolated parsonage at Haworth, Yorkshire, where her father was curate. She and her sisters Emily and Anne thrived in fantasy worlds that drew on their voracious reading of Shakespeare, romantic, and gothic fiction. Charlotte was employed as a teacher and a governess before she began writing with her sisters. The Professor, her first novel, was rejected for publication until 1857, although Jane Eyre, published in 1847 under a pseudonym, achieved great success.
