5.0 out of 5 stars I think he is not like young men in general January 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Daniel Deronda" was the last novel George Eliot wrote, and it's an appropriate finale to her career -- a lushly-written, heartfelt story about a young man searching for his past (and clues to his future), as well as a vibrant strong-willed young lady who discovers that life doesn't always go your way. Even better, Eliot deftly avoided the cliches and caricatures of the Jewish people, portraying them with love and respect.

Daniel Deronda is the ward (and rumored illegitimate son) of a nobleman, who is unsure of his past (particularly of his mother) catching a glimpse of pretty, reckless, arrogant Gwendolyn Harleth at a casino. Gwendolyn (who boasts that she gets everything she wants) is interested in Daniel, but when her family loses all their money, she marries a rich suitor, a relative of Daniel's -- knowing that his mistress and illegitimate children will be disinherited. But she soon finds that her new husband is a sadistic brute, and sees Daniel as her only help.

Meanwhile, Daniel rescues the despairing Mirah Lapidoth from a suicide attempt in the river, and he helps the young Jewish singer find a home and friends to care for her. As he helps her find her family, he becomes passionately attached to the Jewish population and their plight, embodied by a dying young visionary and a kindly shopkeeping family. Then he receives an important message -- one that will illuminate his roots, and give him a course for the future.

When Eliot published her final novel, it caused a massive stir -- not many novelists tackled the plight of the Jewish population, or how it compared to the gilded upper classes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story March 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw the BBC movie version before reading the book, and both were very enjoyable. There's more to the story, of course, in the book, but they did a good job with it in the movie. I did enjoy getting into the characters' heads more, as always with a book versus movie, although there were times when the book didn't hold my interest well. It's very long and some parts are just a bit too wordy, but still a great story and a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars astonishing sloppiness November 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best novels I've ever read, but this edition offers represents the worst example of proof-reading I've ever encountered. Two or three errors on every page. What have we come to? Avoid Digireads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daniel Doronda June 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Far more difficult than George Eliot's Middlemarch, and not so tidy, but worth every kern. The tempestuous, proto-feminist character of Gwendolen alone would support a fine novel.

Some people have found it hard to read George Eliot because of the language and it's so old, but I fell in love with this story. It is such a great tale of love.
