Kadınların sınırlı haklara sahip olduğu ve bunun da doğal kabul edildiği bir çağda bir kadının yazarlığı seçmiş ve seçiminde engel tanımamış olması başlı başına bir meydan okuma. Erkeklere, onların kurduğu düzene, onların diline ve ahlak anlayışına bir meydan okuma.

I did it, I finished "Middlemarch"! After starting it back in August, putting it on hold during September and October, and resuming it this month I can finally say that I read the 924 pages of this monster. ~
It was worth the read, though, and I guess that I'll miss some of the characters after all the time I spent with them (not Mr Casaubon, that's for sure). Dorothea Brooke, Will Ladislaw, Rosamond Vincy, and Tertius Lydgate are quite remarkable and very human, all with strengths and weaknesses of their own.
I enjoyed reading "Middlemarch" although it's not perfect. The structure is quite messy, meaning that there is no balance between the characters and you can be pages and pages following the same protagonist and suddenly a different character reappears when you almost lost track of him or her, so you have to adjust again to the story. Also, it's quite dense and some parts are as interesting as watching paint dry (Mr Brooke's mostly). Maybe not for everyone, but you should give it a try and see if it works for you.
