    The Mill on the Floss, first published in 1860, tells the story of Maggie Tulliver and her brother Tom as they grow from children to young adults in the small rural town of St. Ogg's, England. Intelligent and passionate, Maggie yearns to develop her mind and break free of the constraints of her provincial village. Though she loves her brother above anyone else, Tom's rigid, pragmatic personality often conflicts with Maggie's headstrong nature, with increasingly tragic consequences.

  • Out of Africa

    Story
    (201)

    After the failure of her coffee farm, Karen Blixen returned to Denmark, where she wrote this classic account of her experiences. Out of Africa is a celebration of her life there and her friendship with the various peoples of the area. Her sympathetic response to the landscape and animals are drawn with warmth and unusual clarity.

    Would you try another book from Karen Blixen and/or Julie Christie?

    Not interested


    What was most disappointing about Karen Blixen’s story?

    I couldn't connect


    Any additional comments?

    It usually takes me the first 1/4 of a new book before connecting. I got half way through and felt I was struggling to pay attention. I was not interested in identifying the characters as the story progressed.
