Item Description...
Overview
Mary Gaskell's North and South examines the nature of social authority and obedience and provides an insightful description of the role of middle class women in nineteenth century society. Through the story of Margaret Hale, a southerner who moves to the northern industrial town of Milton, Gaskell skillfully explores issues of class and gender, as Margaret's sympathy for the town mill workers conflicts with her growing attraction to the mill owner, John Thornton. This new and revised expanded edition sets the novel in the context of Victorian social and medical debate.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Move Over Lizzie Bennett  Jan 14, 2010
Move over Lizzie Bennett, Margaret Hale has found her way into my heart. Margaret Hale is a heroine to be cherished. In North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, we see Ms. Hale's coming of age. Margaret goes from being concerned only with the trivial, to developing a social conscience. I find Miss Hale to be an admirable, strong woman.

I liked that there was more to North and South than just romance, (I'll admit the romance part was nice). It is a commentary on industrial society and agrarian society. It also contains a commentary on humanity, on the plight of workers in the industrial North. Clearly, Gaskell's sympathies are with the workers, and I liked that.

As far as characters go, Mr. Thornton was a fantastic love interest. I felt he was relatable, as his love was an unrequited love, and who hasn't ever been rejected? I liked that Mr. Thornton also underwent a change. Personally, I think his chemistry with Margaret was sizzling.

I loved that North and South made me feel heartbreak, anger, and joy. Over all this was a lovely book to pass the hours with. I think if you enjoyed Pride and Prejudice you will enjoy North and South.
 
Great read  Oct 14, 2009
I first saw the BBC movie and loved it so I bought the book and LOVED it!!! It rivals books like pride & prejudice and jane eyre. Love love love this book.
 
BETTER THAN THE MOVIE  Aug 27, 2009
If you have seen the movie, you must read the book! It is very well written, and it has more details than the movie.
 
Masterpiece!  Jun 5, 2009
This book is amazing! If you enjoyed Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, you'll absolutely love North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. It is a must read for the fan of English period novels.
