Bronte's classic takes on a renewed sparkle as read in Juliet Stevenson's charming and clear British accent. She sets the scene so vividly as to transport the listener right into the heart of Jane's troubles and triumphs. Her vocal characterizations, which focus on tone and expression, rather than regional accent, reflect the contrasting emotions of the novel's cast. The pain, joy, and sorrow experienced by Jane and Mr. Rochester sing out as clearly as the dramatic music preceding each chapter. Stevenson excels in capturing the evil exhibited by the Reed family, as well as the tenderness of Jane's and Helen's schoolgirl friendship. Bront? fans and first-time listeners alike will warm to this time-honored love story. J.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
