Publisher's Summary

Here is a tale straight from the fireside. We are compelled to follow the humble and mysterious figure of the linen weaver Silas Marner, on his journey from solitude and exile to the warmth and joy of family life. His path is a strange one; when he loses his hoard of hard-earned coins all seems to be lost, but in place of the golden guineas come the golden curls of a child - and from desolate misery comes triumphant joy.

Terrific narration of a classic novel.

This is a beautiful and refreshing story with almost a fable-like quality to it. The possibilities of family, community, faith, industry, and class are explored here as well as the potential of love to transform and transcend them all. The journey from beginning to end is not only entertaining and thought-provoking, but heartwarming. Anna Bentinck's reading has a rich quality and draws you snugly into the tale and up to Silas' warm hearth.

Happy story!

What did you love best about Silas Marner?

I loved the very rustic and upbeat feel to the story. I usually don't like stories with happy endings as much, but this story was just so charming, and I loved Silas and Eppy so much!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Silas. He was a snot at the beginning but he grew to love his daughter, so I came to love him.

Have you listened to any of Anna Bentinck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I was very curious.

Any additional comments?

I want to find another happy book that I like as much!

Intimate and rewarding

A steady read that measures the ups and downs of a mysterious character. Profound in a low key way, like Ishiguro

A gorgeous and well told story. Pure bliss. The classics with their beautiful language, remain, in my opinion, the best.
