In the early years of this century, such a linen-weaver, named Silas Marner, worked at his vocation in a stone cottage that stood among the nutty hedgerows near the village of Raveloe, and not far from the edge of a deserted stone-pit. The questionable sound of Silas's loom, so unlike the natural cheerful trotting of the winnowing-machine, or the simpler rhythm of the flail, had a half-fearful fascination for the Raveloe boys, who would often leave off their nutting or birds'

Funny story: I read this ages ago with my mother when I was very young. We read it together. She had read it with her mother. But over the years, I'd forgotten most of it. I knew it involved a weaver and his daughter. But in my brilliant mind, I meshed it with Rumpelstiltskin. What a shocker when nobody spun any gold!

This really is a lovely story. Before it's lovely, it's laugh aloud funny too. Despite its age, the language is easy to understand and it's an incredibly quick read. George Eliot packed a lot of story into a very slim book, and an original telling into a morality play. A ton of characters and plot lines all weave together effortlessly to end in a tear-jerker.

Interestingly, she thought this was a throwaway, or perhaps it should be a poem. We're lucky she plodded along to finish the story because it really is a little gem. Now I suppose I should reread Rumpelstiltskin in case I've got that mixed up with something else entirely too.

Loved reading this book again! I read it when I was in high school many years ago and now I am 90 years old! I attended the local school in Pottersville, NY and I have good memories of that. My parents Stuart & Helen Mead built Black Bear Restaurant as we raised a black bear cub to adulthood and had a little zoo of small wild local animals. Our black bear Annabelle would stand up high and we would feed ice cream cones to her! We also served food inside and had gas pumps in front. Later we sold the place and moved to Melbourne, Florida. Our parents have passed on but my sister June and I still live here and speak often of our childhood memories in the Adirondack Mountains. God bless!????

George ELiot 's masterpiece was required reading in my eighth grade class. I dreaded trudging through it and had not a clue as to the wonderment of the dialogue , the richness of the characters or the subtleties of the story line. What a waste on thirteen year olds.

I am so glad to have persevered and given it another shot at age 70. What a treasure!

I found this to be an unusual and engaging tale, but if you choose to read it be prepared for quite a lot of archaic language and vernacular from the mid-1800's. I read it on Kindle and was still unable to find the meaning of some words, but for the most part that seemed to not affect my understanding of the novel.
One bit that surprised me was the amount of humor, gentle poking fun, that showed up throughout. She teased the rich and the poor and the middle-class here and there in a droll way. It's likely because I'm either not all that well-read or because I have a poor memory, but I found the storyline to be clever and unusual. I could see the surprise ending coming for a while but that didn't ruin the book in any way. Also, one could say that the plot was a bit of a soap opera in some ways. That may be true, but if so it's very well done.
I look forward to reading more of her books.

This was a fine story and novel, almost a novella as it is not lengthy. This is a story about a weaver and the weaving trade in days gone by.
It is a story about a steady personality (the protagonist) who overcomes devastating adversity and personal cruelty under small favourable circumstances which are both unpredictable for the reader and could be true to life. This novel, could be based on a true story for its detail and convincing authenticity of trade and character development. The storyline lent itself well to being dramatized with Sir Ben Kingsley playing "Silas"
in the 1980's BBC production which adheres well to the intention expressed in the novel by George Eliot
The paperback by George Elliot makes a fine gift for a young person starting life.

I used to hate "Silas Marner" when I was forced to read the thing for my English class in Middle School (1959). The teacher I had was terrible AND I was not a gifted student. Since then, over the years, I have reread this classic about four times. Now that I have my Kindle I decided to read it again. The text is laid out very well for the Kindle. At this price it is truly a must-read. What a terrific book!

This is a tale of how love conquers all. A bitter man, Silas Marner, who was done wrong gave up on humanity and decided to live in a cocoon of his own making. Silas' only joy and purpose in life was making and hoarding money. He spent hours on end working himself to no end all for the purpose of earning, saving, and collecting money. Then one day his money hoard was stolen. The rest of the story is a lesson in love.

I have no idea why; here in America, George Eliot's "Silas Marner" is not well known. None of my friends have ever heard of this book. In India this work was well known. Anyway, if you have the time, patience, and inclination for a good read this is it.
