What the community says about North and South

  • Raymundo Meléndez
    Written on April 20, 2018
    "I haven't read this book, but I can confirm that the title is about opposites. I don't understand why anyone would be interested in titles that are opposites, but I suppose it's just one of those things. Now that I've given it some thought, I'm inspired to buy this book, for no other reason than because the title involves opposites."

    "North and South is a British classic. Americans might not get it. It's entirely about British history but it's a good long read."

    "This book questions about the nature of social authority and obedience. The book follows a young lady through her difficult move from a home she loves in the south of England to the colder, harsher climate of a Northern England mill town. "

    "A good historical book for kids to look back on. It details rebellion and authority perfect things for the kids to read about. The story was entertaining and interesting. It was pretty easy to get through and I would say it should be fine for kids."

    "As her sympathy for the town’s mill workers grows, her sense of social injustice piques and she passionately fights their corner. However, just as she disputes the mill owner, John Thornton’s treatment of his workers, she cannot deny her growing attraction to him. Highlighting the changing landscape of nineteenth-century Britain and championing the role of women in Victorian society, Gaskell ."

    "There just is not a dull moment in this book . Every paragraph, every chapter ,every sentence has you on the edge of your seat. I would definitely read this again and recommend it to others, for some people it might hit them the wrong way because of the political nature but its not too overwhelming , its just right . "
