I really liked the book overall. The plot was interesting, and the character development is very nice to view as a reader. However, with this book being a classic, the writing style is difficult to understand. I would not recommend this book to anyone under 13, and that is if they have an advanced reading level. I had to read this for school, and frankly, I am glad (we could have been stuck with something far worse). I would not have read this for fun. The unabridged version is very lengthy and detailed, so I would not only recommend a reader over 13, but reading the adapted version.
I was SO excited to read this book, I had heard so many great things about it (including stellar reviews on this site). I wanted to like this book, really I did, but it just wasn't happening. It's VERY boring and dry. Bronte has a beautiful writing style but nothing extremely interesting or exciting happens -- and I got 14 chapters in and decided to give up.
