A Fantastic Read

I enjoyed this story, and hated for it to end. The characters are very fine and engaging. It was not so dark a story.

wonderful read!

Elizabeth Gaskell's "North&South" is a beautiful lovestory of two strongwilled characters, and at the same time it portrays the beginnings of industrialisation in Victorian England and its working class people. As the title suggests, the novel is full of opposites and the main target is to bring them into harmony...do the characters succeed? "North&South" is for all the lovers of 19th century literature and, of course, all those who appreciate a good lovestory with social background information.
