This book can be read and understood on so many levels, but if you want to get an overall picture of men and women's lives in 19th-century rural England through their relationships within the rigid structure of family and society - in particular, the main character, Maggie, becomes its victim - this is any excellent read.

I love reading, but I thought this book was terribly difficult to get through. I felt that it gave a lot of pointless background information before getting to a disappointing end.

"This rich, multi-layered work has been called a masterpiece of memory, as Maggie's rebellious childhood closely resembles that of Eliot herself. One of the most remarkable books ever written about childhood and a lyrical portrait of provincial England, this monumental work is a great novel of the Victorian age." -- back cover
