Publisher's Summary

The Lifted Veil is a novella by George Eliot, first published in 1859. Quite unlike the realistic fiction for which Eliot is best known, The Lifted Veil explores themes of extrasensory perception, the essence of physical life, possible life after death, and the power of fate. This book has been carefully adapted into modern English to allow for easy listening.

Strange, and not entierly sure thats the point.

This book was.....odd. Not necessarily in a terrible way but I am not sure if it was intended to be strange or not. It could be the way it was adapted but honestly I don't think that's it. Michael Downey did a solid job with the narration and kept me along for the ride even despite this though. Long story short the books not bad but I feel like I missed something yet have no idea what it was. May just be me though.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
