A new Jane Eyre edition. Shorter, easier and... frankly, it is necessary?
Jane Eyre: Chosen Classics Retold with Book, Notes and Audio Book (MP3)Charlotte Brotnë. Adapted by John Kennett
Geddes and Grosset
ISBN: 9781842058633

This classic novel is ideal for ELT and also young people with English as their first language, as a graded reader ideal for aged 13+. It is of great interest particularly to those interested in Victorian novels and classic literature. It is suitable for adults who are learning English. The book contains a simple glossary and notes. This book comes with a CD of the story, so you can listen to it again. This book is graded as B1/2, so some knowledge of English is needed.

This book was adapted by John Kennett, and was first published by Blackie. Kennett felt many people were missing out on some great stories as the original books were too long, and people had less time to read than when the books were first published. He set out to shorten the novels. He retained the most important and vital parts of the story, and hoped readers would go on to read the original later.
