Lyndsay Faye's reworking of JANE EYRE is exceedingly well crafted, with impeccable narration to match from Susie Riddell. Faye's main character, Jane Steele, is aware of the Brontë novel and conscious about the ways in which her story follows Jane's. These details make for some interesting musings on her situation and remind the listener of the connection in a way that feels natural. Riddell's narration is a wonderful match for Jane's prickly but empathetic personality. Riddell expertly conveys Jane's fears and ambitions, while also breathing life and individuality into a host of other characters with whom Jane interacts. Lovers of JANE EYRE or any of Faye's other works will be captivated by this engaging listen. J.L.K. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2016]
