Man, you're really putting yourself through the paces this year. I only remember NOT enjoying this on in high school. Hope it's better for you...

I really do highly recommend it. Reading it on Ritalin helps...there is a fairly large cast of characters to keep straight and like most novels of the day this one turns on marriage, property, inheritance, and other tangled matters.

Congratulations. I used to read a lot of Victorian era stuff and that's the longest one I recall. I do like Eliot but don't believe I ever made it through Middlemarch. The Mill on the Floss was more my speed.

Read Mill on the Floss and Silas Marner in high school. May re-read them. I really did like Middlemarch, but I think my favorite remains Thomas HArdy's Mayor of Casterbridge. Again, read in High School but remember really enjoying it. After I am done with the pallette cleanser of a spy novel, I plan to dig into my first Anthony Trolloppe. I also have Return of the Native waiting for me.
