Hello, Masha!

Masha

How do you find the weather these days?

Dima

Well, the weather has been really unsettled. But it doesn't matter very much. When the weather is bad I usually stay at home and read my favourite books in the evening.

Masha

And what are you going to read today?

Dima

I think I will read "Jane Eyre" This is my favourite book by Charlotte Bronte. It brought her fame.

Masha

I know, this book is really very famous. A friend of mine has seen a screen version of the novel. He liked it. But I think a book written in the 19th century can hardly be interesting for a contemporary reader.

Dima

I do not think so. Charlotte Bronte wrote about feelings and views that cannot become old. If you read this book, you will understand that the situations people have to face in their lives do not change very much from century to century. And the ability to overcome them, become stronger, and still be able to share one's feelings is essential for everyone.

Masha

Well, perhaps, you are right.
