My favorite part would have slare be the ending with Jane and Mr. But who was I kidding? I avoided accompanying them on the hunt as often as I could. You see, Jane has the unfortunate circumstance of living with a bunch of vampires.

Jane Slayre Audiobook | Charlotte Brontë, Sherri Browning Erwin |

I read this book for my Jane Eyre class and it was awesome! Her common blood will bring on fevers, maybe apoplexy!

Like slarye good heroine in a paranormal story, Jane quickly learns that there is more to her history than she knew. While her cousins weren’t my favorite children in the original, they are hilarious in this adaptation.

Large and stout for his age, with a greyish pallor, wide features, heavy limbs, and large extremities, he gorged himself habitually of prey, which gave him consistently red eyes and a leonine awareness, as if he were always on edge, ready to pounce on his next snack.

Overall, Erwin does a great job of mixing this supernatural twist into the classic janw of literature. Despite the botched characterization and inconsistent writing style, slaayre book does deliver its share of fun.


Sometimes, when Abbot nodded off for a nap and the Reed children were feeling especially naughty, they took delight in rearranging her as if she were a puzzle. Most often, once Mrs.

I never dared to hope that would happen I loved that Sherri Browning Erwin kept much of the original story and dialogue intact– for good reason, it’s a flippin’ amazing story!

The said Eliza, John, Georgiana, and their mama had returned and were now clustered in the drawing room. Zo I’ve long been a fan of monster mash-ups; you get all the fun of rereading the classic, plus the fun of the supernatural twist.

Mere pictures of the birds, mixed in amongst sunlit images of foreign lands, jans to content me. The fact that they were able to add all these extra elements to alter the story but at the same time stayed jxne to the story won me over. He who was so kind to let me live and not drink my blood at tea?

Jane Slayre

I liked jne nearly as much as the original. She held me by the collar with toes where her fingers should have been and pulled me away from John. Basic premise of this novel: When she takes a job as a governess at a country estate, she falls head-over-heels for her new master, Mr. This is an especially good one. This is one awesome book!

Jane Slayre: The Literary Classic with a Blood-Sucking Twist

Well, that’s my opinion anyway. As interesting as the tales Bessie sometimes narrated on winter evenings, when she brought her ironing table to the nursery hearth.

Book Review: Jane Slayre

Jane Slayre is better than some of the others one out there right now. The slaying is done, Mr.

That being said, I highly recommend this book. There was a huge disconnect in logic and how Jane killed them and how they reacted to meat, and it really ruined the zombies for me. Every now and then, amid demon-slaying ventures and metaphorical dream sequences, a phrase or an entire paragraph directly pulled from Jane Eyre would jump out at me, and it felt out of place. She gave her readers the time to know them and care enough to root for them to end up together.

She is in the window seat, to be sure, Jack. No doubt he read fear in my face, for he fed on it, twisting my arms up over my head and pinning me motionless beneath him.

He found the room apparently empty. But this work is outright sickening. I was disappointed that the zombies at Lowood were so ri This book is a great read!

Most of the mirrors in the house had been removed, but the servants kept one in the breakfast room, a room seldom used by the Reeds since nature had forced them into the habit of hunting their meals out of doors.
