Silas Marner (1861) is Eliot's classic tale of an outsider. A weaver who comes to live and work alone in the Midlands village of Raveloe, Silas Marner's sole pleasure is to count his growing hoard of gold. When it is stolen, his life ceases to have meaning - until Eppie wanders into the weaver's cottage one snowy New Year's Eve and falls asleep on his hearth. Eppie is two years old.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Forced to read it Unless you are forced to read it, I would not advise picking up this novel. The characters are not at all interesting. Eppie was irritatingly good with no character flaws. I couldn't stand the way the book was written, not just the old fashioned style (I've enjoyed other classics), but the pointless wordiness of it. The only good thing about this book was the beginning, where it seemed like the fits would be more interesting and involved in the novel. All downhill from there.
