Would you listen to Silas Marner again? Why?

The story is simply beautiful. Andrew Sachs is perfect, not only in reading it, but in actual playing the different characters, with different voices and even accents.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Silas Marner?

With no doubt, the moment Silas finds the child in the very spot where he had last seen his stolen money.

What does Andrew Sachs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the subtle ironies in many of the villagers tones, which, English not being my mother tongue, I would not have guessed by reading it myself.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not quite, but It made me think a lot about human relations. Or rather, about how relations make us human. Silas the weaver is a total stranger in Raveloe (despite having been there for a good fifteen years) until the moment he weaves himself into the community thanks to the child he has adopted, his daughter.

Wonderful Reading of a Memorable Classic

Silas Marner is a story that continues to resonate, and narrator Andrew Sachs does a wonderful job of bringing the voices to life. I listened to the entire book in one day. Couldn't turn it off.
