Jane Eyre Book Club Questions

The Brontë Buddies’ Book Club meets via Zoom every month. We read works by and about the Brontës as well as Brontë-inspired fiction. If anyone would like to join us, then head over to our Facebook page for further details.

Below are some questions about Charlotte’s novel Jane Eyre which you’re welcome to use in your own clubs.

  1. Looking at the many different cover designs (see above), what would you expect the book to be about? Pick one in particular to focus on.
  2. What do you think Charlotte would have thought of some of these covers?
  3. What genre do you consider the book to be? Bildungsroman, romance, Gothic, or something else?
  4. Which characters did you like best in the book?
  5. Which characters did you like least?
  6. Do you think the locations function almost like are characters?
  7. If you could hear this same story from another character’s point of view, who would you choose and why?
  8. Which character did you relate to, or empathize with, the most?
  9. Share your favourite quote from the book. Why did this quote stand out?
  10. What do you think happens to the characters after the book’s official ending?
  11. How many stars would you give the novel out of five?
