Silas Marner


Read by rachelellen

(4.3 stars; 51 reviews)

Silas Marner (originally published in 1861): Betrayed by a beloved friend and accused of a crime he didn’t commit, awkward Silas Marner is expelled from his beloved religious community — the only community he has ever known. He exiles himself in the remote village of Raveloe. Friendless and without family, set apart from the villagers by their superstition and fear of him, he plies his weaving trade day after day, storing up gold which becomes his idol. When his gold is stolen, he is rescued from despair by the arrival on his lonely hearth of a beautiful little girl, whom he adopts, and through whom he and the other people of the village learn that loving relationships are more fulfilling than material wealth.

Reviews

charming story

(5 stars)

This is a good reading. I ended up switching to this version from version 2 only due this being done in American English which is easier for me to take in. The story itself is rich and engaging. I enjoyed it.

Difficult.

(3 stars)

It's not a bad book, but it is difficult to read and quite monotonous. Reading it along with this audio really helps to focus as it can become fairly boring in places.

BETTER THE SECOND TIME

(4.5 stars)

I had to read this in the ninth grade. I enjoyed it a lot more this time. Perhaps it was the great narration. I recommend it.

Well you will probably be there first.

(5 stars)

Inviting narration. Excelent intonation ( I hope that's the right word) as the conversation went from person to person and male to female etc. Eliot has incredible insight into human nature....the good and the bad. And her allusion to scripture is powerful and fitting. And her observation of the divine through the foibles of the folk of her day both reflects profound truths and the errors of simplicity apparent in her day. A gripping tale from start to finish.
