I sometimes read it until the part where she flees Thornfield, and then skip to the end where she hears him and comes back.
I fail to identify with Jane in the Rivers part, as much as I fail to identify with Dorothea Brooke for most of Middlemarch (George Eliot). Seems like these authors automatically connected wise, knowledgable, and well learnt with old and unattractive, all in one breath. Where are the clever guys, the inventors?

I think they were all on duty in Robert Heinlein books.
