    What disappointed you about The Mill on the Floss?

    It was so tedious and boring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by George Eliot again?

    Yes


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laura Paton?

    No one


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mill on the Floss?

    NONE - that is criminal to cut from an author's work!


    Any additional comments?

    I know it is known as a great English novel, and I'm sure it probably is. Unfortunately I am at that time in my in which I am only doing bucket list reading, movie going, traveling, etc..
    I do not want to waste one minute being bored or enduring unpleasant experiences.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "TERRIBLE ENDING - 18 HOURS WASTED"
