It is a story about a steady personality (the protagonist) who overcomes devastating adversity and personal cruelty under small favourable circumstances which are both unpredictable for the reader and could be true to life. This novel, could be based on a true story for its detail and convincing authenticity of trade and character development. The storyline lent itself well to being dramatized with Sir Ben Kingsley playing "Silas"
in the 1980's BBC production which adheres well to the intention expressed in the novel by George Eliot
The paperback by George Elliot makes a fine gift for a young person starting life.
Still, no person who wishes to be thought literate in English literature should not have read Silas Marner. For whatever shortcomings it may have, it's a page turner by a literary master.
A good look at the mores and culture of that era before the author's time which by addressing it with a level of non-judgement lets us know how much more tolerant her era was.
I love the fonts and the flexibility of the display. Then I realized that was a function of the Kindle device and didn't exist when Eliot what writing her novel. So that little piece of joy is irrelevant and I recommend you ignore this paragraph altogether.
The measure of any piece of fiction is whether you're glad it's over because you only finished it because you feel guilty NOT finishing it, or whether you wish it could go on for a few more chapters. This is such a delightful tale, so well told, that you'll wish it could go on longer. Luckily, Eliot has written several great novels for you.
