I love the humanity behind this novel and the many good reasons that Jean Rhys had for writing it. Read my review at John C Adams Reviews:

I first picked up Jane Eyre for a uni course, and I wish we had to read this book as part of it too.

It gave me so much to think about, and while it is a different style and tone to Brontë, I think it helps make the story and the characters of Rochester and “Bertha” that much more interesting.

Finished in a day too, so that‘s a bonus!

KathyWheeler I loved this book and loved getting a story about what might have turned Bertha into the madwoman in the attic. (edited) 4mo

I know it's late for #Day4 #SavvySettings #ATTIC but I wanted to pay homage to a marvelous work of #literarycriticism that influenced at least 2 generations of writers & critics -- and these 3 works of fiction all develop the theme: #JaneEyre,# TheYellowWallpaper, & #WideSargassoSea

A pray is supposed to go up to heaven, to touch God or his angels, and fall back on you in grace, strength, or hope. But sometimes it fails, and that gives this beautiful quote: "I prayed, but the words fell to the ground, without meaning." #gabrielledubois #bookreview on #goodreads

Currently reading and enjoying, even it's not usually the kind of writing I like. Some very good quotes, I'll send my review soon... I'm glad I read this author for the first time.

Just started this but liking it! I hadn't know before I got the book that the main character is the first wife of Mr Rochester! Very interested to know more! #books #bookcover #widesargassosea #currentread #lovetoread #bookmad

Vikkiha I‘m planning at some point this year to read this and Jane Eyre together - just can‘t decide which order to read them in 😐 5y
emmaturi Well I suppose if you wanted to find out why she ends up in the attic in Jane Eyre, then maybe this one. @Vikkiha 5y

I don't understand why Rochester is seen as the villain in the novel. I think Richard is the bad guy as he forces Antoinette to marry Rochester and lies to the guy about his bride and her past.

I also think the book is pretty poorly written, too.
