Adam Bede by George Eliot ~ Full Audiobook

Classic Audiobook Collection

Adam Bede by George Eliot audiobook. Adam Bede, the first novel written by George Eliot (the pen name of Mary Ann Evans), was published in 1859. It was published pseudonymously, even though Evans was a well-published and highly respected scholar of her time. The novel has remained in print ever since, and is used in university studies of 19th century English literature. The story's plot follows four characters rural lives in the fictional community of Hayslope—a rural, pastoral and close-knit community in 1799. The novel revolves around a love triangle between beautiful but thoughtless Hetty Sorrel, Captain Arthur Donnithorne, the young squire who seduces her, Adam Bede, her unacknowledged lover, and Dinah Morris, Hetty's cousin, a fervent Methodist lay preacher.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/matthew-jackson95/support

Adam Bede by George Eliot

Book-Bosomed

If you haven't read this book, stop what you're doing and get yourself a copy NOW. This is by far our favourite book as a collective and we loved talking about the manly wonder that is Adam, the kindness and compassion that governs these characters and the plot, the circular nature of country life in the eighteenth century, and, weirdly, sniffing Sam Heughan.
