Follows from childhood the lives of siblings, Maggie and Tom, who grow up on the eponymous mill land in the 1840s. The novel is the story of their relationship, their fluctuating devotion to one another, through the varied fortune of their family.
My feelings toward the book are as varied as Maggie's and Tom's for one another; at times I really enjoyed its humorous depiction of stodgy, stuffy aunts and self-amused uncles, but by the end I became frustrated with the "Oh, I mustn't" "Oh, but you MUST" "Oh, but I MUSTN'T"-ness of it all. And the ending, although I understand the reasoning behind it, still felt abrupt and unsuited, and seemed (to me, at least) to make the previous plot elements pointless even while making its own sort of (overly-) dramatic Point. Also, I have a low tolerance for men being So Very Put Out because a woman doesn't behave the way he thinks she should, which happens on multiple occasions here. Gah. ( )

After listening to this book, I can say that I didn't like it as much as Silas Marner. Maggie didn't come as close to me as Silas did. I ususally an able to place myself in the timeframe the book was written in (that is, turn off my 20th/21st century me while reading about girls and women living long ago, but in this particular case I had trouble with it. Maybe because the book was quite long (it could have done with at least 100 pages less, spread here and there over the narrative), but all in all it was okay.
Only the ending was VERY disappointing. Not that I look for a happy ending in every book I read, but this one felt quite desperate. ( )

A finely detailed and carefully observed coming-of-age of a girl growing up in rural England in the 1830s. I found Maggie, the protagonist, a compelling and relatable character--in the early part of the book, when she was still a little kid, she often reminded me of other big-hearted and emotionally intense but sometimes-wayward (in the sense of not easily submitting to society's narrow expectations for her) literary heroines that I looked to for reassurance when I was going through my own growing up as that sort of girl. However, the sections of the book that were more focused on other members of her family did not hold my interest as well, and I would have been ok with a lot of them being trimmed and keeping the focus on Maggie. The startling ending was definitely one that will stay with me. ( )

Warning: this review contains spoilers

This is an intense novel, emotionally. Maggie Tulliver is a passionate person. She is bright and fierce and a bit otherworldly, not caring what the general populace may think of her, but at the same time desperately seeking the approval of her brother and parents. Overall, this was an interesting read, although there were a few narrative-observation sections that I skimmed over. I was certainly heavily invested in the story, namely by yelling out loud at the book about that ***hole Stephen Guest, who deserved none of her pity. All he could think about was HIS needs and feelings, even though Maggie suffered far more than he did. I wished he’d fallen into a cesspit. Maggie’s brother, Tom, did not deserve her affection either; he was far too hard-hearted and unyielding, believing others instead of her first. So on that level this is a frustrating book, but it is told well and I am looking forward to reading more Eliot. ( )

Too bad Maggie didn't live in modern times where she could have got an education and had a real life instead of clinging to the hope that her brother Tom would love her unconditionally. ( )

A wide plain, where the broadening Floss hurries on between its green banks to the sea, and the loving tide, rushing to meet it, checks its passage with an impetuous embrace. On this mighty tide the black ships -laden with the fresh-scented fir-planks, with rounded sacks of oil-bearing seed, or with the dark glitter of coal—are borne along to the town of St. Ogg's, which shows its aged, fluted red roofs and the broad gables of its wharves between the low wooded hill and the river-brink, tingeing the water with a soft purple hue under the transient glance of this February sun. Far away on each hand stretch the rich pastures, and the patches of dark earth made ready for the seed of broad-leaved green crops, or touched already with the tint of the tender-bladed autumn-sown corn. There is a remnant still of last year's golden clusters of beehive-ricks rising at intervals beyond the hedgerows; and everywhere the hedgerows are studded with trees; the distant ships seem to be lifting their masts and stretching their red-brown sails close among the branches of the spreading ash. Just by the red-roofed town the tributary Ripple flows with a lively current into the Floss. How lovely the little river is, with its dark changing wavelets! It seems to me like a living companion while I wander along the bank, and listen to its low, placid voice, as to the voice of one who is deaf and loving. I remember those large dipping willows. I remember the stone bridge.

Such things as these are the mother-tongue of our imagination, the language that is laden with all the subtle, inextricable associations the fleeting hours of our childhood left behind them. Our delight in the sunshine on the deep-bladed grass to-day might be no more than the faint perception of wearied souls, if it were not for the sunshine and the grass in the far-off years which still live in us, and transform our perception into love.
There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music.
