My Plain Jane is a literary fiction book in The Lady Janies series by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows.
The irreverent tale of Jane Eyre – a tale of mischief, romance and supernatural mayhem perfect for fans of The Princess Bride or A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.
Penny orphan Jane Eyre begins a new life as a tutor at Thornfield Hall, where she meets a dark, moody Mr. Rochester – and, listeners, she marries him .
My Plain Jane is a Jane Eyre meets Ghostbusters retelling of the classic novel, and true to form, it is witty, fun and captivating. I think my best piece of advice before you go in to this book is to remember that it is a retelling, therefore it IS a different story. While filled with the same characters and basic plot points of Jane Eyre, My Plain Jane takes you on an incredibly imaginative journey, full of the twists and turns of an entirely new tale.
Because of this, I truly think that this book will appeal to those who love Jane Eyre and to those who don’t. If you love Jane Eyre, you can once again join these characters on a new journey while revisiting the beautiful aspects of the classic story that we all know and love. If you don’t love Jane Eyre, well…like I said, it’s a new journey, and I think this story will appeal to you with its new twists and witty parenthetical asides. Written in true Lady Janie fashion, this book will not only take you on an incredible ride, but will also include you, as the reader, each step of the way. I loved reading all the classic lines from the original story in a new way, and getting to be a part of Charlotte Brontë’s journey of writing her beloved classic novel. I also loved returning to the feel of the gothic novel and watching each twist and turn play out in a unique way.
