Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte». Аудиокнига на английском.
Me name is Jane Eyre and my story really begins when I was ten years old. I was living with my aunt, Mrs Reed, because my mother and father were both dead. Mrs Reed was very rich and her house was large and beautiful, but I was not happy there. My three cousins, Eliza, John and Georgiana, were older than me. They teased me, and never wanted to play with me. Sometimes they were very cruel. I was afraid of them.
Most of all, I was afraid of John Reed. He liked to frighten me and he made me very unhappy. I often hid from him in a small room. I liked to look at the pictures in the big books from the library there.
I felt happy and safe in my little room that day, because I knew that John and his sisters were with their mother. But then John got bored and decided to look for me.
‘Where’s Jane Eyre?’ he shouted. I kept very quiet and hoped he would not find me, as he was not a clever boy. But his sister, Eliza, soon found where I was hiding.
‘Here she is,’ she called, and I had to come out. John grinned unpleasantly when he saw me.
‘What do you want?’ I asked him.
He made me stand in front of him. He stared at me for a long time, and then, suddenly, he hit me. ‘Now go and stand by the door,’ he said.
Now I was really frightened. I knew that John was going to hurt me.
I went and stood near the door.
‘I’ll teach you to take our property,’ said John Reed, and he picked up a large, heavy book.
At first I didn’t know what he was going to do. Then he lifted his arm and I realised that he was going to throw the book at me. I tried to get out of I he way, but I was too late. He threw the book straight at me, it hit me on the head, and I fell.
