In a hole under the floorboards Silas Marner the linen-weaver keeps his gold. Every day he works hard at his weaving, and every night he takes the gold out and holds the bright coins lovingly, feeling them and counting them again and again. The villagers are afraid of him and he has no family, no friends. Only the gold is his friend, his delight, his reason for living. But what if a thief should come in the night and take his gold away? What will Silas do then? What could possibly comfort him for the loss of his only friend? An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the George Eliot original by Clare West.

    " I didn't get through this book, and it's pretty small! I had a really hard time with the language and since it is very Victorian, I had to keep re-reading paragraphs to figure out what the characters were saying. I got the "feel" for the book, but as I was reading, I found that I just really didn't give a damn about the main character. It was too much work to read and decipher the "language". I guess this one is just not for me. "

    " Like most of us, I read this back in high school, but am trying to add to my list of books read as I recall books I have read. I did think it was one of the more interesting of the books I had to reread for high school English at the time. "
