I suppose it depends on your dentist...

] Hey, it's not fair to put all the Brontes in the same awful pot. I agree that Wuthering Heights is just a big fat ridiculous soap opera with everyone feeling sorry for themselves all over the place, but what I like about Jane Eyre is that--besides actually having a main character you can like--there's a rather attractive overall message about being true to oneself and sticking to one's guns.
I'm sorry if I caused offense; believe me, it was unintended. As I've posted before, I'm far behind on the JE reading schedule and, having disliked Wuthering Heights, been reading rather slowly. You and others have pointed out that this is a very different novel and I'm sure I will end up enjoying it.
] AND, as someone who's just this afternoon gotten back from being drilled at the dentist--I'd even rather read Wuthering Heights!
As far as the dentist is concerned, I suppose it depends on what your dentist looks like. If I had a Jeremy Northam look-a-like as a dentist, I might be better at seeing him every six months. ;-)
