I agree with most of you on Jane Eyre. I recently finished it and it was an amazing book. One of my favorites. There are
tons of comparison throughout the story. Mr.Rochester was wary and unsure, but he loved Jane from the start and kept it to himself. If you read Midnight Sun, you'll catch my drift. Jane, found him a little intimadating at first but was intrigued and was curious. She became more and more obsessed with him, and quickly fell in love too, but she hid it for a little while. Exactly Bella's situation. And in the end when Mr.Rochester is blind, Jane doesn't care. She still loves him no matter what he is. And when both of them left either one, a big gape was left in their heart. And Mr.Rochester, like Edward, pushed Jane/Bella, to the altar but they solemnly agreed. Bella is like Jane in many ways, head strong,intelligent,curious,peculiar, and usually is the one to take care of people. Edward is much like Mr.Rochester, rich, stubborn, believes himself not to be a good person, fell in love, becomes broken-hearted when they're away from the girl they love, and becomes more whole, a better person, and they're know it alls.
I grew upon and love Mr.Rochester as I do with Edward. But I love Edward a little
