Daniel Deronda

You know those BBC period pieces that suck silly romantic girls in? Here's another one.

The truth is, I found the production pleasant and interesting -- but MOSTLY I really enjoyed the scattered hints of literature worth further study. They left me wanting the full story. I loved the comparisons evident between the different characters, their choices and relationships. I loved George Eliot's treatment of social issues including gender roles and race/religion.

I will probably be acquiring this book for my own collection, and reading it, soon. :) Oh, and I recommend the movie...to silly romantic girls.
