"You transfix me quite."

So I'm currently rereading "Jane Eyre," and I'm trying to take my time with it, because there's so many little details I had forgotten, like the scene early on between Jane and the "gypsy." I'm trying to savor the book, take pleasure in the small nuances of characterization and plot. But at the same time, I'm eager to finish, because I can't wait to see the film adaptation. The trailer alone looks amazing.

Have you seen the film? Did it measure up to the book? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! :-)

The gypsy scene is one of my faves! And they cut it form the film! SadPanda =( I thought Mia as Jane was amazing, but the rest of the film fell short of my expectations. I feel like they cut a lot of the important themes. But maybe that's just the English major in me ;)

See, that worries me, because my inner English major is going to be peeved by the same issues. Oh noes! Well, hopefully they got the other scenes right.

So believe it or not, I took two elective English classes my senior year in high school (on top of AP English), majored in English in college (and took 20 English classes), and have a graduate degree in Creative Writing . . . and I've never read Jane Eyre. Or most British classics.

Crazy right??
