And when their father died, this became even worse. And I won’t waste any time expounding on how disappointing, flows disappointing, the ending is — it’s like it was written late at night in a fit of desperation before an AM term-paper deadline. I found their childhood fights to be repetitive, starting inevitably with Maggie’s clumsiness and ending inevitably shlla Maggie’s tears.

I must admit that I was not drawn into flosw novel as much as I was for Middlemarch, however Eliot’s writing provides insight into her society in a rather unique way.

She is critical to the plot but just never came across as a real person to me. The Mill on the Floss 1 6 Nov 23, And, like I said, the book was really cheap, why not, right?

Now I get why I had heard people raving about how much they loved her and I so agree with them. Contrived to make a point. I’m not saying the book was bad, because it wasn’t.
