    This is the story of Margaret Hale, a young English woman who accompanies her family's move from rural southern England to the industrial north. It proves to be a difficult change, with all the attendant social conflicts and cultural misunderstandings consequent to such situations. It is a study in contrasts. Mrs. Gaskell created one of the Victorian era's greatest heroines in Margaret Hale, a young lady of passionate intensity.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    At first I was a bit put off that the story was narrated by a man, even though it is definitely a story about a woman. Overall though, the narration was quite good.


    Would you recommend North and South to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not really. It was okay, but I would first recommend Portrait of a Lady or Anna Karenina


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Okay .


    Could you see North and South being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Possibly.


    Any additional comments?

    Not the best classic I've listened to. It took a while to get into the story. Overall it was an average story. The best part is that Gaskell brought to view the woman's point of view at that time iin history. Her writing was probably quite cutting edge for her time.
