The Art of Observation



Never having read it as part of my high school curriculum, I recently picked up a copy of "Middlemarch" at a thrift store, and have just now finished it with a sigh. Lovers of classic English literature, let Anna-Joelle's review on Amazon convince you of this remarkable novel:

"...George Eliot's style of writing - beautifully and distinctively eloquent and expressive, and with such observance and skills in depicting the depths and complexities of human relations and the demands and passions of the heart. The book also explores the issues of class, money, politics, scandals and even murder - all portrayed brilliantly in high drama and with engrossing suspense".
