The Prydain Project

Thirty years after first devouring Lloyd Alexander's Prydain books, I'm rereading them to see if the magic is still there. If you've arrived at this blog because you loved Prydain as a kid, I hope you’ll enjoy the chance to revisit it along with me. To read the recaps in order, start here: "The Book of Three," Chapter 1

What to Read: Adam Bede

Spent last weekend in Tennessee celebrating the birthday of my father-in-law, who told me that his favorite book is "Adam Bede" by George Eliot. While I've had "Middlemarch" recommended to me several times over the years, I think this was the first time anyone has recommended an Eliot book to me that was not "Middlemarch." My father-in-law admitted he had a few false starts with this book, but he kept at it and found it to be one of the most rewarding reads of his lifetime. What do you think, readers - does this one go on the list? Or, if I only read one Eliot book, should it be her defining work rather than a deeper cut?

Should I read "Adam Bede"?
