Jane Eyre Laid Bare: The Classic Novel with an Erotic Twist

Jane Eyre Laid Bare: The Classic Novel with an Erotic Twist Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone is familiar with Charlotte Brontë's passionate, but restrained novel in which the plain, yet spirited governess Jane Eyre falls for the arrogant Mr. Rochester. Its a novel that simmers with sexual tension but never quite reaches the boiling point. Which is to be expected. After all, the original was written in 1847.  That was then. This is now. And in JANE EYRE LAID BARE, author Eve Sinclair writes between the lines to chart the smoldering sexual chemistry between the long-suffering governess and her brooding employer.

When an eager and curious Jane Eyre arrives at Thornfield Hall her sexual desires are awakened. Who is the enigmatic Rochester and why is she attracted to him? What are the strange, yet captivating noises coming from the attic, and why does the very air she breathes feel heavy with passion? Only one thing is certain. Jane Eyre may have arrived at Thornfield an unfulfilled and tentative woman, but she will leave a very different person…

Review:

"Rather than an all-out retelling, Sinclair's mashup reads more like Victorian erotica with trace elements of Brntë. Sinclair removes the novel's opening sections about Jane's family and school life to get immediately to her heroine's arrival as an 18-year-old governess at Thornfield Hall. Unlike the original's somber abode, this version of Mr. Rochester's home is filled with sexually suggestive paintings and lascivious servants and guests. While Sinclair can treat Jane and Rochester's physical attraction much more frankly than Brontë, it's at the expense of their emotional chemistry. Sex scenes that rarely rise above the mundane, as well as a prurient sensibility that typically consigns Jane to the passive role of voyeur, means readers may be better served creating their own fan-fic or investigating the similar Jane Eyrotica.
