grateful for the readings, but some o the accents I did not care for. Particularly, the Southern accent. When you read this type of book I imagine the traditional English accent, throws it off a bit. But good overall.

NORTH AND SOUTH (1854) by Elizabeth Gaskell is both a social commentary and the romantic story of a young lady, Margaret Hale, who is relocated with her family from the affluent South of England to the industrial North.

Margaret comes in contact with the difficulties of the working class and her sympathies are engaged. She also encounters the fascinating John Thornton, a wealthy local mill owner and a man of true integrity. Romantic tension ensues, reminiscent of Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. However, unlike an Austen heroine, Margaret lives in a world of harsher realities, with few things whitewashed, and suffering going hand in hand with ultimate exultation.

A classic portrayal of nineteenth century industrialization, and of the complexities of the human heart.

Don't get me wrong--Gaskell's novel is magnificent--a 5+++++. Where Dickens's portrait of England's early manufacturers and nascent factory system in Hard Times is caricature, Gaskell's is nuanced and complex. I wish this novel were better known and appreciated. My low rating is for the Penguin Classics edition, with introduction and notes by one Patricia Ingham, who is identified as a Fellow in English at St. Anne's College, Oxford. Since I was re-reading the novel, I disregarded the spoiler warning and read the introduction first. Apart from a few useful facts--e.g., that Gaskell originally intended to call her novel Margaret Hale after the protagonist but changed the title before publication in Dickens's Household Words, the introduction is mostly prefab class-and-gender analysis delivered in imprecise and inelegant jargon: "[Margaret] problematizes both the contemporary major discourses that justify [the workers'] emiseration: paternalism and 'the struggle for existence.' " The notes, by the way, which are not preceded by a spoiler warning, are full of spoilers; within the first couple of pages, at least two major plot developments are revealed. The notes are also full of Ms. Ingham's superfluous and condescending explanations of the significance of events and textual features (quotations, allusions, etc.) as if the benighted reader needs her guidance at every step. Finally, this edition is poorly produced: tiny font, poor contrast between page and type, and an inside margin so skimpy that it is difficult to read the full line without breaking the binding. What's happening at Penguin? at Oxford?
I have watched the series often because it is one of my favorites. As happens often the book is so much richer and sweeter, although I still consider the TV series one of my favorites. An excellent read that takes you into the center of another world, at another time!
With the AmazonClassics collection Amazon had brought back to me many classic books (some I read when I was younger) and I absolutely love the initiative.
`North and South` it's not necessary my favorite genre, but I found Elizabeth Gaskell storytelling similar, but slightly better and more complex, than Jane Austin`s. It's definitely a classic read, but not a masterpiece from my point of view. The story is settled in the England industrial era and the author does a great job of recreating the atmosphere of the era. The characters are well rounded, although not very complex. I liked that the author does not only focus on the main female character; other characters (especially the main male character) are also put into the spotlight at some point in the stories, with their internal conflicts. The novel also touches some social, industrial and business matters, making the story more complex and informative.
I read the book in Kindle format, the reading experience was OK.
While I fully enjoy the actual novel North and South, this particular reproduction is not at all what I expected. It is titled and advertised that it is a hardcover version of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South. It is NOT. The first few pages reference the constitutions of the free masons, then there are about 100+ blank pages, then pages 151-154 of the ending of North and South. Ridiculous - this should not be advertised as the North and South novel. There is a disclaimer page that "as a reproduction of a historical artifact, this work may contain missing or blurred pages, etc." but nowhere did it say that this didn't really have the novel at all. I feel this is mis-representation for something that costs over $20.
Silly Dog
The title refers to the north and south counties of England, the north industrial, the south rural. Young woman from south is forced to move with her family to a northern industrial town where she butts heads with a mill owner.

Themes include workers' rights; the tragic conditions of the poor and oppressed (most of whom are very honorable people); rampant disease (affecting all classes); unrequited love; familial devotion; spiritual faith; the price of success.

Hard to put down. Well developed characters in a character-driven story. Thoughtful, sometimes disturbing, and often romantic.

Historical setting: early 1800's.
Elizabeth Gaskell's "North and South" is a skillful portrayal of real people facing real-life struggles and temptations. It shows the reader both sides of the struggle between employer and employees in the Victorian setting of a smoky manufacturing town, as the heroine, Margaret Hale, meets people on both sides and embarks upon womanhood burdened yet enriched by what she experiences. I highly recommend it for adults and teens - men as well as women! This particular, free edition contains some obvious editorial errors, such as sentences which were not divided by punctuation. However, it was quite readable.
This is a great read, and if you're familiar with or enjoy Austen's Pride and Prejudice, you will find similar plots, themes, and personalities. Gaskell's work is different in its own way to Austen's despite the similarities, and it raises important discussions on the image of Northern and Southern England, class, economics, and health that are fun to explore if you're a scholar. Many people coin this as the "darker" Pride and Prejudice, and in some ways it is. I mean, compared to Austen's own words that her work is sparkly, it's definitely different and some people are very concrete and stark on their opinions. Both are enjoyable and both are great to have on your shelf and both are important for their influence and study in Gregorian and Victorian England.
Loved the story. It ended more abruptly than I prefer, but it was a very satisfying ending nonetheless.

This version is a bit flimsy, but the editor’s notes are very, very helpful. However, they sometimes contain spoilers. If you’ve never read/watched the story, be cautious about the editor’s notes.

Also, unless you speak French, be prepared to Google something every couple chapters.
