Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life is exactly what it claims. Its multiple plots center around the inhabitants of a fictitious Midlands town and their evolving relationships to each other. It is critical of social class, ambition and marriage, and religion. It is commonly considered one of the masterpieces of English writing, and Virginia Woolf described it as "the magnificent book that, with all its imperfections, is one of the few English novels written for grown-up people".… (altro)

    thesmellofbooks: The Getting of Wisdom is the rare sort of book that provokes deep self-reflection and a nudge in the direction of peace-making with self and life, and in this way brings to mind [[George Eliot]]'s [Middlemarch]. I am gobsmacked. The novel begins as an entertaining tale of a headstrong young Australian girl going to meet the world at boarding school. It gradually evolves into a subtle, simple, and stunningly real observation of the pressures of conformity and the intolerance of naïveté, which, when paired with a strong desire to be accepted, can lead to many and often rending responses in an imaginative young person. Yet it is not a tragedy. I am left moved, affectionate, a little worried about the future, and yet joyful at the intactness of the protagonist's resilient soul. Bravo, Ms Richardson.… (altro)

Middlemarch reads like a soap opera and, like any good soap opera, it manages to draw its readers in and keeps them turning the pages to find out what happens with each character. Although it is not particularly exciting, I found myself hooked until the end and found it a pleasant book for bedtime reading.

The book also provides a picture of rural English life in the 1830s as the inhabitants of Middlemarch confront the changes of this era. For fans of Thomas Piketty, it also provides a wealth of economic insights for the era.

This particular e-book edition is a pleasure to read although the illustrations provided tend to be just simple photos of the people and cities mentioned. Frankly, I would have preferred an annotated edition. ( )

A well loved classic and a good read. Strong character depictions help immerse the reader into the story about life in a small community. The variety of characters, their dreams and aspirations, their relationships, all are wonderfully portrayed with kindness and humour.

My favourite character is Caleb Garth. Kind, generous, fair, gentle, hard-working and honest. In fact his whole family, I warmed to. Mary stood out as the most sensible and realistic of all the female characters. Dorothea was a bit too holier than thou for me and with such lofty ideas you just knew it wouldn't end well although things did work out for her in the end. Rosamund is an over indulged, selfish and uncaring creature that I disliked immensely and made me feel extremely sorry for Lydgate, although with aspirations beyond his means he comes across as a bit of a hopeless dreamer.

Eliot has such nice turns of phrase that make me smile. One of my favourites is Mr Chadwallader’s description of Mr Brooke,
“Brooke is a very good fellow, but pulpy; he will run into any mould, but he won’t keep his shape.”

The characters are so real, you can see something of everyone you know in them. ( )

I loved it -- this is one that will stay with me. Eliot has a compassion for her human characters where Jane Austen has scorn or Charles Dickens has fantasy. "People are almost always better than their neighbors think they are," she writes.

But, we marry the obviously wrong people, compromise on our dreams, and even on our values. We never end up where we wanted. Middlemarch's characters face life's disappointments without cheap balm or sinking into romantic despair. Virginia Woolf called it one of the rare English novels for adults. ( )

I'm afraid I have stopped reading this very long novel a little over a quarter of the way through. While it contains some crisp and humorous dialogue and some good scenes, this is not enough to sustain my interest over a book of such length. For me this lacked the focus and atmosphere of Silas Marner or Romola. No rating.

A beautifully told tale of the interweaving of characters lives, their desires, their failures, and for a few, their overcoming. ( )

Who that cares much to know the history of man, and how the mysterious mixture behaves under the varying experiments of Time, has not dwelt, at least briefly, on the life of Saint Theresa, has not smiled with some gentleness at the thought of the little girl waling forth one morning hand-in-hand with her still smaller brother, to go and seek martyrdom in the country of the Moors? (Prelude)
Miss Brooke had that kind of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress.

Miss Brooke had that kind of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress.
Sane people did what their neighbors did, so that if any lunatics were at large, one might know and avoid them.
What we call our despair is often only the painful eagerness of unfed hope.
Riding was an indulgence which she allowed herself in spite of conscientious qualms; she felt that she enjoyed it in a pagan sensuous way, and always looked forward to renouncing it.
Some discouragement, some faintness of the heart at the new real future which replaces the imaginary, is not unusual, and we do not expect people to be deeply moved by what is not unusual. That element of tragedy which lies in the very fact of frequency, has not yet wrought itself into the coarse emotions of mankind.
