This is Elizabeth Gaskell's first novel, a widely acclaimed work based on the actual murder, in 1831, of a progressive mill owner. It follows Mary Barton, daughter of a man implicated in the murder, through her adolescence, when she suffers the advances of the mill owner, and later through love and marriage. Set in Manchester, between 1837-42, it paints a powerful and moving picture of working-class life in Victorian England.… (meer)

    Emma door Jane Austen (kara.shamy)
    kara.shamy: In some ways the heroines in these two novels are alike, but they are very different in other respects, and more strikingly, their respective journeys to the altar/married life go in diametrically opposite ways, in a sense! Both are true classics in my estimation; reading these two novels exposes the reader to two of the greatest English-language novelists of all time in the height of their respective powers. While all readers and critics do not and will not share this superlative view, few would dispute these are two early female masters of the form and are well worth a read on that humbler basis ;) Enjoy!… (meer)

Brilliant, heartbreaking depiction of the life of the working class of Manchester in the bad times ...
So appalling that this was true. Wonder if the "masters"were influenced by this book....loses that spirit after the murder,rather changed,but still very readable.So many characters die,but that was true to life,apart from the last two were it seemed a bit too of a convenience...but I begin to nit pick....I cry buckets over Mrs Gaskills books,and they are full of heart and sympathy.

Life for the Victorian poor and a murder to solve. ( )

Really enjoyed the first half of the novel, found the second half a slog. I wish Gaskell had been less quick to forgive the 'masters'! ( )

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It detailed the heart-wrenching plight the poor endured in Victorian England. It was written around the time Dickens was writing his earlier novels. It went into the desparate measures people can resort to out of deprivation and desparation, from prostitution to murder. So sad that many of our ancestors endured (and some people still do) such horrid living conditions in many parts of the world throughout history. Such needless suffering that all could have (and still could be) prevented. ( )

A far finer-grained report of the ways, means and place of 19th century industrial England than Dickens, I think, so much so that I'm slow to consider reading Dickens again for a long time. Not like I ever did. Without his condescension and bubbly optimism there is space in Gaskell's mostly lean prose for all the good stuff: children and old people dying one after the other, a legitimate if truncated plot about the labor struggle, and the daily habits of starvation. In the labor piece we witness the absurd pretense at powerlessness on the part of the bosses to prevent starvation, a bold, callous and moralistic lie that we all need to see nenuded in the Trump age.
Also present are a few small turns to the audience for a polemic message as we love so much from Harriet Beecher Stowe, and on the other hand some appeals to the religious view that now seems backward but rings true and honest in Gaskell's voice and in her time. At the end she chickens out and makes things come out easy, with a moralistic upbeat conclusion, but that's to be expected from the era. An excellent book that must not be forgotten! ( )
