بیش از هزار صفحه نوشتن، بدون این که خواننده لحظه ای خمیازه بکشد یا حتی به فکر خمیازه کشیدن بیفتد، هنر می خواهد، هنر واقعی

Middlemarch, like most writings of its time, is a lot of work. It is an investment. And it is a very good one. Not being particularly thrilled by Silas Marner, the only other Eliot work I’d read, my expectations weren’t very high going into this one. But when the climax of the story had me actually in tears in the middle of the night, as I sat up late to finish it one weekend, I realized just how much power Eliot had packed into here. It’s difficult to share much about what I took away from the ...more
I LOVE this book. I have wanted to read it ever since watching the miniseries on BBC years ago (actually 1994--I just looked it up. That is Rufus Sewell as Ladislaw! Wow!). The sheer magnitude of it was initially overwhelming, but I am thrilled with the investment of time that I made. This story is like a Jane Austen (who I love! No disrespect intended!) book on steroids, with grittier conflicts, deeper passions, and everything not quite so neatly wrapped up, but still very much to the reader's ...more

Recommends it for: those interested in classics, but also in live and how it may turn out to be.
If there has ever been a novel with such an overwhelming happy-end (or rather so many happy-ends), I have neither ever read it nor heard of it. Though "Middlemarch" is a story combining a few intertwined ones, each of them has a start and an end - the latter one is something I've missed on so many stories I've read in my whole life. When I started entertaining myself with books, I often came across tales that ended only because of the end of pages, not due to the end of the story. I guess this o ...more
