An absorbing, semi-philosphical tale of love and people driven to extremes. Our hero, a carpenter, loves Hetty Sorel, but she loves Arthur Donnington, a local squire. The story soon progresses onto powerful themes, such as: who has the right to determine who lives and who dies? A non-judgemental examination of human relationships and nature, Adam Bede has been highly praised for achieving something beyond realism. Download and start listening now!

    " I slogged through this mess when I was in college with my ever-faithful Cliffnotes at hand. I think I fell asleep at the end of every sentence. How I ever passed that George Eliot class is beyond me. "

    " Yes, it's a little slow until the main scandal, as many other reviewers of this book will tell you, but the author does such a good job of recreating rural life in the late 1790s and introducing us to the characters and their flaws, that it's enjoyable and all necessary. The ending is satisfying as everyone recognizes and repents of their trespasses. "

    " The problem with reviewing books I read a long time ago is that I can barely recall details. I remember loving this book. George Eliot's "seriousness" was no doubt at work here, but she gives one so much to think about that I cannot help but loving pretty much everything she writes. "

    " Middlemarch is one of my all-time favorite books but I've never read any other Eliot. So, I decided to read all of George Eliot's works this summer but, unfortunately, I was only able to finish this one. Highly reccommend it. "
