The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Wide Sargasso Sea - Jean Rhys - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of Wide Sargasso Sea:

Who Bertha was before she went to England, met Jane Eyre, and burnt the house down.

My favorite Jean Rhys quote from the book:

"Lies are never forgotten, they go on, and they grow."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How has your childhood shaped you?

Who has betrayed you the most?

My Review of Wide Sargasso Sea:

I loved the "prequel" (read my review of Jane Eyre here)

I came to dislike Mr. Rochester very much (not that I liked him much before).

A very great (and dark) book.
