5.0 out of 5 stars An Uplifting read May 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
So, I've been on a classics kick lately. Unfortunately, all of the classics which have been recommended have been depressing and hard to make it through to the end. When I mentioned this to my mother, she mentioned Silas Marner as a book which she especially enjoyed many years ago. It is a bit slow moving in the beginning of the story, and, of course, with the change in language, you actually have to use a bit more of your brain to understand it. But, it is well worth the effort. This was one of the sweetest stories which I have ever read. The author was able to bring about such a wonderful uplifting ending that I know I will re-read this book again. It is nice to know that just because it is a classic, it doesn't mean tragedy. Now off to ask my mother for another recommendation. :o)

1.0 out of 5 stars Find a different edition to read August 2, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This review is not about the content of 'Silas Marner', but about the quality of this particular printing. In a word, terrible. It looks like text that's been downloaded from a public domain site and printed in whatever serif font was available at the time. Don't take my word for it - do what I didn't do and actually take a look at one of the printed pages. You'll see that the print is small, the lines are way too long, and it's just as unappealing to read - visually - as it possibly could be. If you want to read Silas Marner, do yourself a favor and find a different edition.

I have read this book several times over the years and will likely read it several more. If you are looking for a fast-paced action thriller, this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a book with excellent character development and a well-thought-out plot, then you will want to read this one. George Eliot has captured the flavour of the time and the location of the story - both the rural and town environments. As well, her portrayal of the "have" and "have not" layers of their society is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Charmer September 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Never read this and was surprised at how charmed I was. Others wrote that is more of a fable and I would not dispute that. I had a close relationship with my grandfather as a child and it brought back fond memories of those days. Loved how his community allowed him to keep her and especially how his neighbor helped him but did not intrude. Also, how a wounded man changed, reminded me a bit of "Heidi". A nice story of how religious people sometimes miss the boat on what Christianity is really about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Touching story, a little slow. March 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book quite a bit. The story is very touching and you learn a lot about England's more rural areas in that time period. The first half of the book is rather slow reading, however, and doesn't seem to pick up until the last half. The English dialect as spoken by the villagers is also a little bit hard to follow until you get the hang of it, but adds a lot to the overall feel. I would recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT an easy read.... August 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okey, dokey, your teacher assigned this book and you are trying to figure out how to get out of it. Better choice, read the Sparknote or Cliffnote or somebody note summary of each chapter and then read the REAL chapter, it will go better through the parts you're having trouble de-coding. This is the book with no terrible typos and its free, hard to beat that.... Oh, and once you're into it its a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected treat March 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It had been many years since I had read Silas Marner and the reread was a real treat. The description of the men talking in the bar is very true to life. The author George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) provides a novel that speaks to today's human condition. His rebirth as member of society with the arrival of the child is wonderful and the relationship they develop is beautiful. The author has wonderful insight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, there's a reason they're classics.... February 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the many books I've put off reading, all my life--along with too many others--and was pleasantly surprised. I love the way the "classical" writers had such an impressive command of the English language; something that's all but nonexistent now. Great story, great characters. If you really appreciate books and let it get by you like I did, read it with all due haste.

As it is mass produced, the words fill the page and there is little room to write down information needed to analyse for her class work. It was needed for a high school class.

Think it was required reading in high school; somehow I missed it. Finally--at 78--I can put it on my list. Great stuff.
