Summary

Felix Holt, the Radical is the story of a young English nobleman, Harold Transome, and the idealist Felix Holt. Transome amasses a fortune while in the colonies and returns home to run for Parliament while taking a liking to one Esther Lyon, the daughter of a clergyman. Everything goes as planned until Felix Holt comes on the scene with his own radical ideas, determined to educate the working-class citizens on the value of integrity and the common man. 

In the beginning, the town is suspicious of Felix and his motives, including Esther. However, it doesn’t take long before Esther realizes just how passionate and sincere Felix is about his beliefs, and she finds that her heart is torn between the two men. Esther must decide if she will marry the wealthy Harold Transome or let her heart guide her to the honest and straightforward Felix Holt.

Badly read

I have read this book in the past, so I know George Eliot's novel is good, but I can't stand to listen to any more of it because the narrator seems to have little interest in, or understanding of, what he is reading.
