    " Loved listening to this on audiobook. I found the ending a little disappointing, but overall I enjoyed the story. "

    " Some people really dislike the prose of George Eliot, but I disagree. This was the first novel of hers which I read and I thoroughly enjoyed. The plot is entertaining and she has great character development. I also remember going to my professor and saying that I wanted to write about nature, religion and something else (probably romance) in this novel, and then realizing that there was no way that a roughly six page essay could encompass all of those topics. I really enjoyed watching how these characters relationships with others affected their emotional journeys throughout the book. A great read. "

    " A wonderful read, although I felt the ending was very abrupt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 1/27/2014

    " The main character is so alive! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Iris | 1/25/2014

    " Beautifully written, but I really was bummed by the ending. I won't read it again, the poor girl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 1/24/2014

    " So good, but also so frustrating!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marisa Crowley | 1/21/2014

    " Great characters, difficult but entertaining language. Fun read, good story, but tragic. Bad things keep happening and at times narrator tries to be too profound. I thought there were too many metaphors throughout the narration (interestingly, the author says early on that metaphors are a sign of intelligence. coincidence?) I liked probably would have given it a 5 except that I didn't like the ending! Too dramatic and ties up too neatly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/18/2014

    " What a fantastic read! The 19th century English litterature lover that I am had been wanting to read this book for ages. I really enjoyed Eliot's beautiful writing and her depiction of Maggie & Tom's relationship. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gretchen | 1/13/2014

    " This book is too long and I never really felt for the characters so when tragedy happens I didn't care --I just wanted the book to be over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/11/2014

    " This book doesn't seem to have a plot at first, but then it gets really good, and I wrote a paper on this and got an A so I remember it fondly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Faye | 11/28/2013

    " I gave up for now. I really want to read this book, but it is one of those texts that I have to be in just the right mood to appriciate and absorb. I'll come back to it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eccentrix | 10/10/2013

    " I thought Maggie came off as a huge brat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Comfort | 9/10/2013

    " The thing I remember most about this book is the sibling relationship depicted. Emotes a warm feeling when thinking back on having read this novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 3/30/2013

    " A very interesting novel but a tragic ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/5/2012

    " Make it 3.5 for the ending. But with all its flaws, it's still George Eliot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keith | 9/20/2011

    " Honestly, I couldn't finish this on my second read. Back in grad school I found this book quite emotionally moving, but I didn't hold my interest all these years later. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karl | 9/15/2011

    " I realized that when I was relieved when she finally drowned, I had probably missed the point of this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Colleen | 6/22/2011

    " I gave up -- too antiquated. Maybe someday when I have endless time (haha!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 5/26/2011

    " Long. So long. Beautifully written, especially the compelling opening description. And wonderfully narrated by Nadia May in the audio version. But it just goes on and on, with whole chapters I didn't care about. And then the ending... Ugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 5/11/2011

    " Cute, but depressing ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 5/4/2011

    " Review to come later, in the interest of not spoiling the text or poisoning the well for friends currently reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 4/16/2011

    " I loved this very romantic book. It's my personal favorite of George Eliot's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/4/2011

    " Really good story if a bit sad! Though took me ages to read thanks to the size of the book + uni work overload! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Henley | 4/3/2011

    " Book Club rating - 3 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 3/24/2011

    " You know what? I didn't finish; I wasn't into this book. It's okay that I don't like it, right? Victorian literature is apparently not my thing. Moving on! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jasmine | 3/10/2011

    " Definitely enjoyable; Maggie's childhood perspective is endearing and rings true. However, the suddenness of the ending and it's completely unnecessary drama ruins what would have been a fantastic book. "
