Genre: Fiction/Short Story Collection
I spotted this little nugget in Glebe one afternoon and I’ve been looking forward to reading it.
Reader, I Married Him is a collection of 21 short stories inspired by Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. The book is titled after Bronte’s famous line from the novel, “Reader, I married him”.
Each story is unique and provides a different perspective about the story and its characters.
Who do I think will like this? Jane Eyre lovers (obviously), gothic romance fans, historical fiction fans and writers interested in how to structure the perfect short story.
Stories from the past, stories from the future, it’s definitely an eclectic mix.
Can Jane Eyre be replicated or is it best to leave well enough alone? I’d love to know what you think!
