    " The first 100 pages are pretty hard going, but I persisted because this is one of my Dad's all time favourite books. I'm glad I did because this is a beautifully written novel which is remarkably insightful in the way it depicts youth, idealism and, in particular, marriage. It has been a few weeks since I finished reading, and I still keep thinking about Dorothea and Will and Lydgate and poor Rosamond. Worth the effort. "

    " Eliot is describing a society a few years prior to her own, it seems, and the contrasts between the two are often meant to mean something to the (presumably contemporary) audience. Sadly, since I'm not familiar with the society, I feel like I'm missing that part of the book. "

    " This book follows a couple of different stories about people who live in or near the town of Middlemarch. It is interesting to get to know the characters individually and then see them interact or think about each other. My favorite stories were about the very virtuous Dorothea and the wordly Rosamond. I didn't know how long the book was, as I downloaded it on my Kindle, so it was surprising to me when I had read for a while and was only at 30%. "

    " Cannot recall when I read this--in college or later--but sometime in 1990, I copied this out: "You must be sure of two things: you must love your work, and not be always looking over the edge of it, wanting your play to begin. And the other is, you must not be ashamed of your work, and think it would be more honorable to you to be doing something else. You must have a pride in your own work and in learning to do it well, and not be always saying, There's this and there's that -- if I had this or that to do, I might make something of it." "
