I always feel weird reviewing classics but here I go anyway!
This had been on my TBR list for a long time. In fact, I bought a nice edition of it a while ago and only actually got around to reading it this year since I needed a pre-1900s book for my book challenge with my roommates.
This book made me realize a lot about myself as a reader (see here) and it took a while to read. There were so many plot lines and, unfortunately for me, the focus was rarely on my favorite people. But boy oh boy was I excited when my favorite couples had their moments. I think that this is a very important historical document. Eliot is so descriptive in her descriptions of the time period and is filled packed with references (most of which I sadly did not get). I have actually found myself understanding some historical things better since I read it. I’m glad I read Middlemarch and I enjoyed it while I was reading but I don’t think that I will be reading it again.
