Jane Eyre with Ciaran Hinds and Sophie Thompson
I promised a few readers that I would post this 4 part radio adaptation when I had the chance, and so, here it is! It is my understanding that this adaptation led to the casting of Mr. Hinds in the 1997 film, because they found his voice ‘passionate.’ If you like the 1997 film, you will probably enjoy this, but if on the contrary you cannot stand it- this radio version will hardly be an improvement. Sorry. So, he’s had two tries, and they’re both pretty much as obnoxious and OTT. Sophie is a tad lispy and, the entire production is middling. Sorry. Better things to come, I promise.
On another note, I know there are a few Romanian readers out there… Does anyone want a Romanian audiobook of Jane Eyre?
