Audible Editor Reviews

Flo Gibson brings dramatic intensity and an intimate tone to her performance of Charlotte Brontë's 1847 novel, Jane Eyre.
The title character is an orphan raised by her cruel aunt. After a trying experience at boarding school, she falls in love with Rochester only to have their potential marriage thwarted by a dangerous secret that leads to her temporary downfall. Critics have since cited a modern sensibility in Brontë's exploration of female identity and class relations.
With her confiding, raspy voice, Gibson draws listeners toward her in her portrayal as the title character in this classic.

Jane Eyre

I've been with Audible for almost a year now and absolutely love the service. However, this audiobook really disappointed me. To start with, the recording is very poor and sounds as though your listening to an old gramaphone. Further to this, the narrator attempts 'mockney' accents that would put Dick Van Dyke or Audrey Hepburn to shame! All in all the story is great but a combination of a poor performance and inaudible recodings make this a headache of an audiobook. Purchase a different version of Jane Eyre!

Jane Eyre

Flo's reading of Jane's dialogues/altercations with Mr Rochester and St John lead towards a 5 star rating. But unfortunately the experience is let down by the low formats of the downloads available. The Format 2 download lacks clarity making it a little difficult to listen to, and does not do justice to the reading.
