Teaser Tuesday (6)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

From page 161 (of my copy) of Jane Eyre
by Charlotte Bronte

*Beware of the run-on sentence! :P

"My world had for some years been in Lowood: my experience had been of its rules and systems; now I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had courage to go forth into its expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst its perils."
*Note: This book is so beautifully written. I'm loving it so far! <3

    I am so glad you are enjoying Jane Eyre it has been one of my favorite books since I was about 13 years old, and yes it is beautifully written! I like the new movie that just came out, but nothing ever compares to the book :)

  2. Good teaser, I've been meaning to read Jane Eyre for a while now.


  3. On of my favourite books. I have been re-reading it for decades. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesdays-tiny-sunbirds-far-away.html

  4. I agree - that language is quite beautiful! Reminds me of why this book was a favorite in high school. Hope you're enjoying the read!

    If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.

  5. LOL, run-on sentences remind me of that dolphin book. ANYWAY. This quote reminds me of Wuthering Heights. But you haven't read it. I think. Anyway, it does sound like something I'm capable of reading!! LOLOL
