Page 97Ugh I'm trying guys I really am But right now I'm about 100 pages into this book and the thought of getting through the next 700 is making me want to throw myself under a train And I almost never leave a book unread so this is serious However since it's on The List I feel I should at least try to give it another chance But it's not going to be easyHere in simplified list form are the reasons I really really want to abandon this book It's everything I hate about Austen boring dialogue and background information endless nattering on about who's marrying whom with none of the dry wit that makes her stories enjoyable Dorothea is an insufferable stuck up know it all and I hate her Also her sister calls her Dodo in a horribly misguided attempt at affection and every time I have to read it it's like a cheese grater to the forehead She's nineteen years old and is marrying a forty seven year old II just can't I know it's going to end badly which makes it slightly better but come on Eliot Simply put I don't care I don't care about these characters I don't care about their boring lives I don't care who marries whom and who is happy or not happy and I really don't care about Dorothea's stupid cottage designs I get the sense that none of the things I listed are going to change I'm strongly sensing that the next 700 pages of this book are going to be the same exact stuff about marriage and unhappiness and Dodo and blah blah blaaaaahhhhh Unless something really interesting is going to happen I don't think I can keep going At this point it would take a zombie uprising at Middlemarch to make me invested in these characters and their lack of struggle Page 190Okay I need to get to Part 5 before I can reasonably stop reading Hopefully something resembling a plot will happen soon Page 300Nope Nothin' yetPage 370OH MY GOD I DON'T CARE I DON'T CARE SHUT UP SHUT UP WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME ALL OF THIS GEORGE ELIOT WHHHHHHHYYYYYYYPage 409Okay I tried No one can say I didn't give this book a fair chance But I'm halfway through and NOTHING HAS HAPPENED I just read 400 pages of some boring people going about their boring everyday business and I'm DONE Maybe I'm just not sophisticated enough to understand this book's genius Maybe I can only be happy with a book if the characters are likeable and doing interesting things besides sitting around and thinking about how fucking miserable they all are Maybe it's just my fault for having a bad attitude about this book from the beginning Who knows But what I know for sure is this I got to my designated halfway point on the flight back from vacation and when we landed I made sure to leave Middlemarch on the plane Hopefully it's adopted by someone who will love it than I did ADDENDUM I just consulted The List to check this book off and I decided to see if there were any other George Eliot books on it Including Middlemarch there are five Eliot books I'm supposed to read before I die FIVE Goddamn it

I'm thoroughly embarrassed to admit that this book was first recommended to me by my stalker Subseuently I avoided MIDDLEMARCH like the plague because it became associated with this creepy guy who thought the fastest way to my heart was to stare at me follow me home and leave obscene messages on my voice mail Flash forward 2 years when I'm purusing yet another of my favorite tomes THE BOOK OF LISTS I'm intrigued to see that the one book that consistently turns up on the Ten Favorite Novels list of various authors is you guessed it MIDDLEMARCH With recommendations from James Michener Ken Follett and William Trevor I figured this was a book worth readingWhat a beautiful surprise Nobody depicts the depth and breath of society better than George Elliot She shows both how people are shaped by their times and vice versa Add to this an intriguing story of Dorothea Brooke a well meaning woman who wants to make a positive mark on the world Despite her best intentions Dorothea soon learns that the world will go on with or without her help This book is a sobering lesson for dreamers like myself who are always pondering How can I make a difference After reading MIDDLEMARCH I suspect George Elliot would answer Stop taking yourself so seriously and get on with your life Nobody wants your help so mind your own business A refreshing attitude particularly in this self important cultureSo long story short If someone starts stalking you change your phone number File a complaint with human resources Get a restraining order But before you do be sure to ask el nutjob for some book and movie recommendations Because chances are after obsessively watching your every move this freak probably knows you better than you know yourself
