bookshelves: 2009, classic-british, victorian-fiction, physical-collection, 2010, revisited
Read in November, 2010

Why oh why did I put this off for so very long? A great, great book with living characters, inticate and almost soap-operish plotting, and some great zingers strung along the way. A most marvelous read. A very minor off tick for the overuse of the words "ardent", "ardour" and variations thereof.

Probably the best Victorian novel.
