In ‘Runaway’, the plot is extremely slow initially but speeds up towards the end and this makes for a great an impactful effect on the reader. The central plot is based around events that happen in the protagonist’s life. Her happiness is faced with a demanding husband and a peculiar relationship with the neighbor, Sylvia Jamieson.

She uses complex sentences, for example at the very beginning of the novel Jane says she’s glad she can’t take a walk with her cousins: ‘I never liked long walks, especially on chilly afternoons: dreadful to me was the coming home in the raw twilight, with nipped fingers and toes, and a heart saddened by the chidings of Bessie, the nurse, and humbled by the consciousness of my physical inferiority to Eliza, John, and Georgiana Reed’. Brontë could have used a much simpler sentence here, but by using this kind of complex sentences you can tell that the narrator, Jane, is educated, that she like to give a series of ideas in an interconnected web, instead of just short statements.
