       After reading this very long and detailed novel, I came away awed at the impressive prose of the author, George Eliot.  She (yes, George is a woman) writes circles around most english-speaking writers.  The book was rich in detail and contained some incredibly interesting characters.  The story details the people of a typical english provential town in the 1830's and how their lives intersect and how their decisions, both good, bad, in the past and in the present, impact their lives and those around them.  The strength of the book is in the characters and Eliot's strong writing skills bring them to life vividly.  The unemotional, detached, yet highly intelligent and well-read character of Mr. Casaubon was especially interesting.  I'm glad to see "Middlemarch" included on the list of top novels.
