Middlemarch by George Eliot

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

Four Silver Stars

MiddlemarchMiddlemarch by George Eliot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In all honesty, I enjoyed it more and read it faster than I thought I would. My favorite line of Eliot’s came at the end: “…for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”

Of all the characters, I liked Rosamond the least (Mr. Casaubon coming in a close second to “Rosy”), and I liked Dorothea the best. In the end, I’m glad “Dodo” went for it.
