    "Reread after many years"

    I read this book in the 9th grade, and only remembered the remarkable ending, and that I liked the book. So now, many years later, I listened to it read by Nadia May, and fell in love with the story again. What a lesson this story teaches us! If you have never read it, put it on your bucket list.

    "Great, but..."

    This is a fairly good reading of Eliot's novel, however, I would avoid buying it solely to avoid Nadia May's ghastly rendition of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"!! What was she thinking? What was the producer thinking allowing it!?

    "Good Listen"
    Have you listened to any of Nadia May’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nadia May is always great to listen to. She is clear and is always sensitive to the authors nuances and has a good grasp of the play of dialogue, being able to bring it off the page. She understands the era she narrates and thus her renderings are always good.

    Story
    "A good read with great life lessons"

    I have never listened to or read George Elliot before.
    But I loved this book.
    It made me go online andl look up several historical things I was curious about, but mostly, I loved the characters and the story.
    It showed so clearly how those tragedies in our lives can also be the events which are the most beneficial to us down the road in life.
    The best lesson, expressed so beautifully, is that God is more tender and kind than we, and if He allows tragedy, He will eventually bring wonderful good out of it.
    Absolutely a lovely principle to reflect on at any time.
    (It did start a bit slow, but hang in there!)
