One of George Eliot's finest achievements, The Mill on the Floss is famed for its unsurpassed depiction of English rural life and for its striking, superbly drawn heroine, Maggie Tulliver. The novel's evocation of childhood in the English countryside-at once unsentimental, yet rich with delight-stands as an enduring triumph, but equally memorable are its portrayal of a narrow tradition-bound society and its dramatic unfolding of tragic human destiny.

An excellent story, so well-written as only Mary Ann Evans can write, a page-turner and so many wonderful lessons regarding character, our early influences, life and love. Eliot is my favourite author of all time.

Good book, if a bit slow at times. I love the main character, Maggie, for her strength of character.

I love George Elliot's flowing, descriptive writing style. And its hard not to feel attached to her vivid, well-developed and memorable characters. The metaphors and the symbolism in this book will have you pondering life for hours after you put this book down. Truly one of my favorite books.. but then again I haven't read any of Elliot's other works.
