PRAISE FOR SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE
“The exquisite truth and delicacy, both of the humour and the pathos of those stories, I have never seen the like of.” Charles Dickens

ADAM BEDE
“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read.” The Guardian
“I believe this may be the most beautiful book I have ever read. I felt both uplifted and emotionally drained when I finished. The tragedy and the great beauty of George Eliot's writing!” Beccie

THE MILL ON THE FLOSS
“Upon completion of the The Mill on the Floss, I realized that I had just finished something monumental—a staggeringly amazing literary achievement.” Christopher H
“The Mill on the Floss is funny and moving and philosophical. Eliot does so many different things well; she's witty and detached, and then she writes a love scene that makes your knees go wobbly. Middlemarch struck me the same way - it's incredibly romantic, and then it does things with that romance, crazy thematic plot things, that sometimes make you feel like the author has punched you in the stomach.” Becky
“Driven by passion, intelligence and imagination, Maggie Tulliver is a rare free spirit in the convention-bound world of Victorian rural society.” BBC

SILAS MARNER
“Eliot's finest pastoral tale. Marner is a linen weaver in the village of Raveloe, who once belonged to a religious sect from which he was unjustly expelled: in reaction he has become a miser. His store of gold is stolen by the son of the local squire; at the same time, a golden-haired foundling, later named Eppie, is left in his house. “ John Sutherland,The Guardian

ROMOLA
'There is no book of mine about which I more thoroughly feel that I swear by every sentence as having been written with my best blood' George Eliot

FELIX HOLT, THE RADICAL
“Finally, and most brilliantly, Felix Holt is a novel of sexual politics. The most interesting and most finely realized character in the novel is an older woman, the genteel Mrs. Transome. The daughter of an earl, her husband’s senility and her eldest son’s irresponsibility burden her with the responsibility for managing the Transome estates, a once magnificent inheritance now impoverished by prolonged litigation and overshadowed by half-remembered local scandals.” David Frum

MIDDLEMARCH
“It is possible to argue that Middlemarch is the greatest English novel . . . Dorothea, young and beautiful, passionate and orphaned, desires to make something of her life.” A. S. Byatt
“Everything she might need to know about marriage, about love, about life itself, was encompassed in the novel’s pages.” Rebecca Mead ‘Middlemarch and Me’ New Yorker

DANIEL DERONDA
“Eliot's last (massive) novel. Gwendolen Harleth ("a spoiled child") marries the wealthy but selfish Henleigh Grandcourt. He treats her sadistically. Gwendolen's path crosses that of Daniel Deronda, a young aristocrat of mysterious origins (even to himself)” John Sutherland, The Guardian

A classic, yes, but a wade. She could use words well, was clearly very bright, but, boy, does sure go on and on!!!!! She just needed a good editor to slick it up and take out the irrelevancies and it would have been a winner!!! I know - to many, it is. I just thought it was okay, not outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eureka! 27 May 2014
By Carol W. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This e-version, fellow reader, is the one to get. It is the only "Complete" collection which includes all eight of her novels, including Daniel Deronda and Scenes of Clerical Lufe, omitted from other supposedly complete collections. It also includes a seven page introduction to her works at the beginning of the first novel. There are vintage illustrations sprinkled throughout, and it uses a clear, modern sans serif font. Download and enjoy!
