It is of medium length, and, allowing for the fact that Victorian Literature is not the same as modern conversational American English, is mostly highly readable. I liked the novel very much.

Your beauty was the first that won the place, And scal'd the walls of my undaunted heart, Which, captive now, pines in a caitive case, Unkindly met with rigour for desert;- Yet not the less your servant shall abide, In spite of rude repulse or silent pride.

This is not a light read. There is a whole lot of history woven into this story of two fictional families. It's one of those books where you find yourself going back to a previous page and reading a passage through again, to understand what has happened and reflect. It takes time to get through the story. It's worth every moment. The scope of the book is amazing, and the level of detail frequently intricate; this is what stayed with me and haunted me at times. Once I finished the entire trilogy I came away understanding the time period much better than any history class even hinted at. And mostly I was enormously saddened at the arrogance, stupidity, greed and pure malice of mankind, because for these events to have occurred at all, be assured those depictions are not fiction. There are sweet and humorous sections, too, which kept me reading, much like unwavering hope kept the characters going. I highly recommend the trilogy.

Loved it. Well developed characters and the movie did justice to the characters and the books. Well worth the read. You loved the good guys and totally hated the bad guys. This trilogy is a tragic love story, tons of history thrown in, plantation life and the civil war. Two families come together in friendship, but the war tears them apart and you truly wonder if their friendship will stand the test of time. Three books in one compilation, long, but well worth the reading time.

What I loved about the books was that it was a huge step back in time and it truly felt that you were at these homes and you were there on the battlefields. If you haven't read this series, you should. You have to read them in order, because it all falls together nicely that way.

John Jake's excellent trilogy on the Civil War is on sale again.

The books take you from roughly 1842 to 1876. While the primary goal is to tell an entertaining story, Jakes does a decent job on historical accuracy. His books look at what led us to war, the devastating cost America paid, and the struggles to rebuild after the war ended. I found the characters grew a lot in the series, and enjoyed following the Main and Hazard families in their journeys in the South, the North, out to the plains of Texas, and even to Europe. I highly recommend this for fans of historical fiction.

I read this trilogy many years ago. It's about the Civil War folks, a topic that currently comes under a lot of criticism. John Jakes spins an excellent yarn, always has. I look forward to rereading this in my retirement. If you're asking me to rate the Kindle version, I cannot. I own a Paperwhite Kindle; it's easy on my old eyes. I can adjust the text size and the back lighting - I like that. The digitization of the written word has been a mixed bag. I'm seen every type of error: no pagination, missing text, etc. You have no idea how annoying it is not to know where you are in a story. The digitization process is terrible in reproducing photos and other types of attachments mostly because they can't be enlarged. It's just plain poor planning and no editorial review. In closing, I think I've read pretty much everything John Jakes has written and never been disappointed. He should be an old guy by now. Hope this helps.

I read the book, like many other reviewers here, after I had watched the brilliant BBC miniseries starring Richard Armitage and Daniela Denby-Ashe. I definitely agree with the comments of many reviewers here that you somehow seem to develop a finer appreciation of the nuances of both after doing that.

A lot of reviewers have covered the ground admirably on the story itself, so I won't go into too much detail on that. In addition to the fine development of plot and characters alike, what I found refreshing about the novel were:

a. Unlike a few other writers of her time, Elizabeth Gaskell focuses a lot more on the thought processes and feelings of the male characters in the novel. For example, you don't get to hear a lot of what Darcy or Edward Ferrars are thinking in Pride and Prejudice, or Sense and Sensibility, except almost tangentially. In sharp contrast, Mrs. Gaskell gives quite a detailed peep into what John Thornton and Richard Hale are thinking, throughout the novel. As someone who is always interested in the differences in thought processes between the sexes, I found this to be refreshingly different from other novels of the time.

b. Being in business, it was quite a new experience to read about John Thornton's evolution first as a business owner and then as a "leader", to use that overused term of today. Mrs. Gaskell appears to have a remarkably sophisticated understanding of both management and labor issues. The examples that stand out in my mind - John Thornton's increasing interest in exploring a better construct for labor-management relations beyond the mere "cash nexus" (towards the end of the novel), and his practice of building what we would call a business case today, as he asks Nicholas Higgins to put some figures together for the new cafeteria.

c. A valuable peep into the mores of the time - for example, despite being fond of Bessy Higgins, Margaret recoils in horror at the thought of visiting her after Bessy's death, a point glossed over in the BBC mini-series, - it gives you a rare insight into things like death and burial customs of the time,.

I must agree with a few other reviewers that the last few chapters seem a little rushed, but from an overall perspective, it is hard to beat this novel for its pure wholesome enjoyment value - more serious and deep than a Pride and Prejudice, and still light enough for people like me who cannot take Thomas Hardy. A definite five stars!
