JANE EYRE LAID BARE
Claiming co-writing credit with Jane Eyre’s author, Charlotte Brontë, implies a certain idea: This erotic retelling will be close to the sexual undertones of the original. Sinclair, however, seems determined to shoehorn in as much erotica as possible, often at the expense of both story and character, just for the sake of titillation. The “shocking” ending manages to encompass three lessons: Sex is bad, BDSM is bad and women who want sex and own their sexual power are bad. Unless you like your erotica with a heaping side of guilt — and this reviewer does not — pass this one up.
