Middlemarch (Penguin Classics) by George Eliot
Middlemarch (Penguin Classics)

Peter_C_Dolan, January 1, 2013

The writing is stunning - you see why it has endured. I'm reading it for the first time in my fifties, which means I've seen and experienced most of what she describes in the life of Middlemarch. While it's a little disconcerting to see that there is nothing new under the sun, it's a great story, full of insights that are still true today.
