George Eliot, crushing it again!
This book isn’t nearly as long as Middlemarch, but I loved being able to draw connections between the two.
Again, her advice about not marrying an idiot seems to hold up, though the consequences aren’t drawn out quite so painfully.
Again, the plot was held for the second half (even the final quarter), which created a sense of anticipation and character development that I didn’t expect in such a small book.
I loved the story. I loved the characters. I loved the author’s wry observations. At this point, I’m going to need to read all of Eliot’s novels.
