From Genesis through Judges we have a straight, linear narrative; in Ruth we have a recapitulation, a backward glance into the main story. When we look over our shoulders at the linear path we have followed, we see only a charred, smoking and bloody landscape. Ruth is a diamond lying in the muck and mire of Judges, flashing in the sunlight. Back in the days when the Judges ruled... there was Ruth - the greatest love story in the Bible, a story of redemption.

    " Excellent, excellent, excellent little book by Elizabeth Gaskell! Such a little gem, dealing with human failure and the grace and mercy of God. Wonderful characters, dilemmas, and a ring of reality throughout. "

    " I thought I would love this, since i really enjoyed North and South. But it shows me why Gaskell is not in the canon. Yes, it's interesting that she redeems a fallen woman, but the book is disappointingly moralistic and predictable. Hated the ending. Some good subplots here and there, but none developed to satisfaction. "

    " Good but very tragic. I wished it had ended differently than it actually had--but still an interesting read. "

    " I liked this one. It was an interesting take on the fallen woman story. The characters are pretty realistic and I always understood why Ruth did the things she did. I may have felt like yelling at her at the beginning of the book not to do what I knew would lead to ruin (the same way you want to stop someone in a horror film from walking into the woods alone), but I understood her. I guessed the ending really early in the book, but that is alright. Overall, I enjoyed it. "
