I may have to swear off Jane Eyre-inspired books for a while. I'm certainly not capable of reviewing this one at this point. I recognized and appreciated the originality, and the quality of the writing, but at the end I felt a big "meh." Possibly I wasn't in the mood for it, and may revisit at another time. If I have more coherent thoughts after a re-read, I may review it, but the overall feeling I had was that sometimes it's better not to mess around with a classic.
