  "Redemtion of humanity" by Kathy E. (see profile) 09/19/08

I think the classics are better enjoyed alone. My book group didn't quite get in to this book like we thought we would. However the story line is great, we just didn't find enough in it to have a discussion with. Eliot shows us that wit transends time. Quite the gifted story teller.

 
  "CLASSIC TALE" by WPLWBC (see profile) 11/02/08

An exploration of the classic "money doesn't mean happiness" theme in a Victorian setting.

 
  "Human Nature" by minajarvis (see profile) 11/18/08

A book of love, vexation, betrayals and romantic illusions. Silas Marner brings the very humanistic traits that leads men to persue and capture what they most desire. Humans are not meant to be alone, sometimes men need to be stroked. Men haunt to have the touch of another.Perhaps a kiss or a glance. In this story a solitary man finds love. An intense treasure-like love.In this case the love of a child. The most beautiful and and innocent type of love known to men.

 
  "A Good Old-Fashioned Story!" by mabook (see profile) 07/10/11

I very much enjoyed Silas Marner. It has some amazingly relevant themes and situations to current times, despite being written in the 1830s. I thought it was truly inspiring how Silas Marner changed himself from being mean and miserly to warm and loving. I highly recommend this novel.
