Middlemarch---read & enjoyed!
- I had a jump on everyone as I got my audio book a few weeks ago &
finished it July 29 in my car.
I won't give any spoilers here---let me just say it took me a while to
get attached to the characters discussed,however once I got hooked I
really cared about what was happening to them. I enjoyed the author's
character development,& capturing specific character's speech
patterns---particularly Dorthea's father (Mr March?)
Once again I am glad to have 'read' it,however I am very glad to have
had it read to me!
While the dramatic elements seem overdone to my 21st century taste---I
realize that they are indicative of the author's era.The book
enlightens us to the concerns of polite society of the time.
I would definitely read this author again.
