'Middlemarch' is an intriguing novel. George Eliot weaves together three stories of love, lies and illusions within a larger existential framework. Despite its length (800 p.) and its 19th C. setting and characterisation, the novel has a surprisingly modern feel. It certainly gets one gripped with the lives of the characters (and even has some qualities of the soap opera).
