Moronic Monday: Edward Fairfax Rochester

Mondays, the worst day of the week. Despite the fact that it's the start of your school/work week, there is always something extra that just pushes it to the next level. That someone that just permanently keeps Monday at the top of most dreaded days of the week. That's what this meme is about. The one character that drives you mad with their stupidity. Their idiocy is the type that you can spot their impending train wreck from miles away, the type that makes you want to slam their heads into a desk repeatedly. Moronic Mondays are not for your lovable idiots, no, it's for the ones that you think they deserve every bad thing they get it.

Don't get me wrong, I love this book but I had so many problems with Mr. Rochester. First and foremost I felt that he toyed with Jane's emotions. The way he has her out and about with his high society friends, knowing how they would treat her. Then tricking her into confessing her emotions with his psychic ruse. Lastly, and most importantly how he was married and tried to marry Jane at the same time. Yes, yes, his backstory is very "tragic." Not really. He was tricked into a bad marriage because of his father as well as his own stupidity. Who the hell marries someone they who they never had a full conversation with them? That in itself proves that he's an idiot, but on top of the fact that he tried to marry Jane at the same time and hide his crazy wife..I can't even begin to go on about how stupid and unfair that was. Why wasn't he just honest about it? Maybe Jane never would have run away then. In fact, his hiding her almost got himself and Jane killed. This is why he's my moron this week.


  1. Urgh!! I hate men like him you just want to get them where it hurts they are so selfish and inconsiderate

    1. I know, right? I don't understand why he just wasn't straight forward with Jane. I would felt more for him then, but because of the way he lied and tried to trick Jane I deemed him a douche.
