Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.

Jane Eyre (2006) (TV Mini-Series)

This is the second adaption of Jane Eyre that I have watched. I still like the 2011 movie version the best but the tv series is really, really good too. It covers more of the storyline than the movie did.


The weakest link for me though was Toby Stephens who played Mr. Rochester. He was good, and in this version Jane and Mr. Rochester's relationship is better developed. I think it's easier to see why they fell in love, and I did like how they showed some intimate moments. But darn it, I kept thinking back to 2011 Mr. Rochester who was played by Michael Fassbender. Fassbender was so intense! Stephens's Rochester was a tad too nice and cuddly. He wasn't that grouchy like I thought Rochester was in the book.


Still a fabulous adaptation though! I really recommend it if you like the book.
