Book Review: My Life in Middlemarch

My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead is a wonderful cross between a memoir and a book about books.  (Is there a genre for that?  There should be.)  Ms. Mead read and re-read Middlemarchby George Eliot many times over the course of her life.  Within the pages of that remarkable novel, she identified many of her own struggles as well as those of Eliot.

I enjoyed this book because I get a thrill out of hearing other people's interpretations of novels with which I am familiar.  There is a camaraderie amidst book lovers that even crosses over between author and reader.  In this case, Ms. Mead treats the reader as a friend sitting across the table, discussing a favorite book over coffee.

I recommend this book to any book lover, especially one that has read Middlemarch.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
