One of my favorite books of all time is the classic Jane Eyre. So, when I stumbled across a writer who had created “The classic Gothic tale set in a future utopia, retold in five episodes.” I got excited. The reviews on it are a bit mixed. The biggest issue seems to be that it may be written a little too closely to the original. We shall see. The first in the series has been added to my queue.
At the time I’m writing this, the first book is free in Kindle format if you’d like to try it too. The other Kindle books are on sale for $0.99. You can get the whole series in a set, but (at least with the sale) you’re going to save $1 if you buy the books individually.
My Mr. Rochester 1 (Jane Eyre Retold) by LK Rigel
The classic Gothic tale set in a future utopia, retold in five episodes.
Episode 1: Orphan Jane Eyre survives a loveless childhood and harsh boarding school education to become a governess at a remote and beautiful estate.
Though plain and poor and without connections, Jane finds contentment in her new position ~ but a rough, mysterious stranger threatens the tranquility of mind she’s fought so hard to achieve.
What classic book would you like to see re-written for modern times?
