  4. Update June 16, 2018 I watched the BBC production this past week and it was outstanding I highly recommend pairing the book with the movie While I rated the book 4 stars, the entire package of paper and screen is a sure 5 stars The movie adds that extra bit of magic that I found didn t come across as well in the writing alone And the acting superb Yes, I did need to fan myself on several occasions thank you Richard Armitage And that ending sigh About three or four years ago I Update June 16, 2018 I watched the BBC production this past week and it was outstanding I highly recommend pairing the book with the movie While I rated the book 4 stars, the entire package of paper and screen is a sure 5 stars The movie adds that extra bit of magic that I found didn t come across as well in the writing alone And the acting superb Yes, I did need to fan myself on several occasions thank you Richard Armitage And that ending sigh About three or four years ago I picked up a copy of Gaskell s Wives and Daughters on a whim, never before having heard of the book or even the author for that matter I know, thank goodness for Goodreads or I would forever remain in a state of ignorance I did not expect to become absolutely smitten with both the novel and its characters I immediately placed it on my favorites shelf and added numerous other Gas...

  5. So about 5 years ago a friend and I were fangirling about Jane Austen generally and debating the merits of the various film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice Colin Firth and Elizabeth Garvie from the 1980 BBC version FTW, by the way and she says, You have to watch this and hands me a couple of DVDs of North and South And I say thank you but I m thinking to myself, well, Patrick Swayze was pretty hot back in the day, but why on earth is she giving me DVDs of a U.S Civil War miniserie So about 5 years ago a friend and I were fangirling about Jane Austen generally and debating the merits of the various film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice Colin Firth and Elizabeth Garvie from the 1980 BBC version FTW, by the way and she says, You have to watch this and hands me a couple of DVDs of North and South And I say thank you but I m thinking to myself, well, Patrick Swayze was pretty hot back in the day, but why on earth is she giving me DVDs of a U.S Civil War miniseries when all we ve been talking about is Jane Austen So the DVDs got lost in the depths of my entertainment center and I never watched them Then a year or so ago I met some GR friends who were all, North and South Richard Armitageand lot...

  6. Pride and Prejudice wouldn t have been a bad title for this comparative study of English society in the midst of the Industrial Revolution I must say that I was prejudiced against it before starting, and have to swallow my pride and admit I was wrong I thought it would be a dry copy cat version of Hard Times, as the circumstances of its publication seemed to suggest that But never trust your prejudices that is what I learned from reading this highly entertaining and original story, and it Pride and Prejudice wouldn t have been a bad title for this comparative study of English society in the midst of the Industrial Revolution I must say that I was prejudiced against it before starting, and have to swallow my pride and admit I was wrong I thought it would be a dry copy cat version of Hard Times, as the circumstances of its publication seemed to suggest that But never trust your prejudices that is what I learned from reading this highly entertaining and original story, and it also constitutes the enduring message of the unfolding plot.A clash of cultures in miniature, between the traditional life style and manners of the South, and the raw, harsh, booming manufacturer ways of the North, it offers plenty of opportunities to play on different layers of pride and prejudice The charm lies in the fact that each social group has its own code of honour, and feels contempt towards all other groups within English society Margaret Hale and her parents, representing the ...

  7. I finally figured out why I love North South so fucking much John Thornton is as invested in his relationship as I am And that means a great deal It s very rare to get such a deep look into the emotions of the male love interest but Gaskell didn t shy away from showing us our beautiful precious son from his most vulnerable side The way he is in a non creepy way so preoccupied with Margaret and constantly talks about her, so that his mother and sister get super annoyed just by the men I finally figured out why I love North South so fucking much John Thornton is as invested in his relationship as I am And that means a great deal It s very rare to get such a deep look into the emotions of the male love interest but Gaskell didn t shy away from showing us our beautiful precious son from his most vulnerable side The way he is in a non creepy way so preoccupied with Margaret and constantly talks about her, so that his mother and sister get super annoyed just by the mention of her name, like HONESTLY SAME, JOHN, I, too, do nothing else but talk about Margaret and you This is some relatable content right there Elizabeth Gaskell has such a way with words, I am so obsessed with her beautiful language and also with all of the fitting poems that she chos...

  9. I can t quite put my finger on why I love this book quite as much as I do And even for someone who does re read books as much as I do, to get through 3 copies of one book is quite a feat For me, the most remarkable achievement of Gaskell is that she is able to combine so many elements of various 19th century novelistic traditions and yet not have the novel collapse into incomprehensibility.The broad scope of the novel, coupled with insightful depth and comment means that each reading of the bo I can t quite put my finger on why I love this book quite as much as I do And even for someone who does re read books as much as I do, to get through 3 copies of one book is quite a feat For me, the most remarkable achievement of Gaskell is that she is able to combine so many elements of various 19th century novelistic traditions and yet not have the novel collapse into incomprehensibility.The broad scope of the novel, coupled with insightful depth and comment means that each reading of the book can offer something new Read it as a straight forward or not love story, a fictional romantic biography Then discover the class politics that run through the novel Or perhaps the debate as the title suggests between the rapidly industrialising north and thegentrified south Or the sexual and gender politics that create a constant thematic pulse throughout the book Or any other matter you choose to seek out from religion to the nature o...

  12. I read this because I d seen the BBC production, and wondered if Margaret Hale would be less silly in the book North and South sounds like it should be about social and geographic divisions, but it s actually about finding balance amidst constant change Although I found her character annoyingly reactive, the Miss Hale of the novel is decidedly less silly than she of the movie.I ve read comparisons of Mr Thornton to Jane Austen s Mr Darcy, but I don t personally see much likeness aside from I read this because I d seen the BBC production, and wondered if Margaret Hale would be less silly in the book North and South sounds like it should be about social and geographic divisions, but it s actually about finding balance amidst constant change Although I found her character annoyingly reactive, the Miss Hale of the novel is decidedly less silly than she of the movie.I ve read comparisons of Mr Thornton to Jane Austen s Mr Darcy, but I don t personally see much likeness aside from a tendency to scowl I actually preferred the BBC s Mr Thornton, as he talked less and scowledthan Mr Thornton in the book Plus, he was played by Richard Armitage, which is never a bad thing.My favorite characters are Mrs Thornton Mr Thornton s strict, severe mother , and Mr Bell Miss Hale s rich godfather Mrs Thornton hassense and self control than all the other characters in the book combined, and Mr Bell is the only person with a sense of humor.Regardless of Miss Hale s silliness, I reall...
