Literary scholars will have, by now, read the titular novel on which this is based, seen an adaptation or been introduced to Charlotte Bronte’s works through a modern interpretation, one of which features Jane as some sort of vampire-slayer. I, myself do not count this story among my very favorites, but I do love the story because unlike other Bronte works, it does retain a happy, if not completely conclusive ending. Most reviewers in the blog scene (and I realize that I am probably the only person who hasn’t seen this but, still, I thought I’d share my thoughts) who I follow adored this adaptation. My thoughts wound up being somewhat split, but nevertheless, here they are.
