MiddlemarchMiddlemarch
by George Eliot - Estes and Lauriat , 1887
Intelligent and wonderfully sophisticated book with sharp commentary on many social issues of the time. Wonderfully imperfect characters are caught in the webs of dilemmas. Their behaviours are quite coherent with their subcultures and characters.
