If cost is your primary concern, Jon, then I'd suggest one of the ones here. There's an ePub uploaded by AlexBell, and an illustrated mobi uploaded by HarryT. However, if you want to do an Audible version for this, I'd definitely recommend the Nadia May narration. She's always going to get my vote, whatever name she's using for any particular work. (Real name, Wanda McCaddon, two common aliases: Nadia May and Donada Peters)

ETA: It appears there is a second Jane Eyre, read by Ms. McCaddon under her own name, also available on Audible. The McCaddon one is about an hour shorter. Both claim to be WhisperSync enabled, and with a reduced price. Though there are so many conflicting versions, it's difficult to guess how you'll manage to get them lined up.

One concern I have for selecting this book is length. This is a long book. Audio versions are 17-20 hours, and while the listing here is for 490 pages, the hardcover edition on Amazon lists it as 656 pages.

If I was to read Jane Eyre, which version/edition would be best to read?
I found the audiobook narrated by Elizabeth Klett to be excellent. Best of all, it's free from Librivox.

I'm nominating The Taking of Pelham 123 by John Godey.

Quote:
Four men take a New York City subway train hostage—along with all of its passengers. Their demands are simple: deliver $1 million, or the men will start killing hostages. Fast-paced and intensely psychological, this novel tells the story from the point of view of each of the hijackers—revealing each man’s motivations, desperations, and fatal flaws.

Tensions build as the four hijackers begin to fight among themselves—and the passengers take advantage of their weakness. Despite their meticulous planning, the kidnapping attempt starts to go awry—and the hijackers’ escape seems impossible.

Ah, yes, a classic of the genre "subway heists."

Really, Jon!
