    Something "Jane Eyre" and in a horror setting - how intriguing! It spans 70+ pages, so it's a decent size and what's more - it's a take on what happens to Jane at Morton. By adding some serious HP Lovecraft vibes into the otherwise sort of dreary Morton stuff, what we get is really good. I enjoyed it tremendously. There is a mysterious "affliction" about and there are creepy beings afoot called "the Eldritch" and they're not exactly cute and cuddly. Deadly and nightmarish, yes. This is the sort of scenery change Jane is treated to from the gloomy but wonderful times at Thornfield. And, of course, trying to get over the fact that the love of her life is already married. In Morton, she encounters one of the peasant girls who seems to have been afflicted, and who has an important message for her ... There are many things to be enthusiastic about here. The illustrations may not be that many, but they're very good and adds to the atmosphere. Also nice to see... More > illustrations at all in something, as you don't normally find any these days - at least not outside of children's books. Another I really liked was the writing style. For me (at least), it felt as if Charlotte Brontë herself could've penned this, but that being said, it doesn't suffer from her tendency for being verbose. Neubert plays up the Gothic themes, naturally, and it fits the original very well. If Brontë had written horror stories with Lovecraft, this is probably what it would have been like. If you're only into "Jane Eyre" and think that's quite scary enough for your tastes, give this one a miss. If you're into "Jane Eyre" AND HP Lovecraft/Cthulhu, this is definitely 5 out of 5. If you're into "Jane Eyre" and horror in general - which is where I come in - it's a 4 out of 5. It's a good story well-told, a great take on an otherwise humdrum part of "Jane Eyre" and it is in keeping with the original characters. If it had been a demon or something like that, I think I would've enjoyed it more, but nonetheless, I enjoyed it because it was a new take on "Jane Eyre" with lots of creepy, Gothic flare. Well worth a read! :)< Less
