- What is Most Stunning about this Book: I think it is amazing that people think Rochester is a good guy. Rochester is an inhumane jerk who lies to everyone and is cold to Jane that the worst thing he did was lock up his wife for so many years. His wife is probably crazy because he locked her out and made her live within the Victorian world of women when she was used to living free and she couldn't take it and went crazy. I think it is most stunning that people believe Rochester is a hero in this.
