I so love that book! I remember stuggling through the first 100 pages or so as she introduced all the characters, then being drawn in like I was being sucked down the plughole into their world.
Just re-reading it myself! Her descriptions of human personality and behaviour just make me squirm - so often recognise myself!
It was given a very big rap in the A2 culture Magazine on the weekend Age (and I assume SMH) just gone.
Just finished! Now I can continue my life.Her characters are amazingly real. I'm squirming too.
Oh no! What am I am going to have to blog about if you start quoting George Eliot? :)
