 Du Maurier Rebecca

1029

spacer image
Not the Hitchcock film but a wonderful novel, full of mystery, love and suspense. Meet the young and gauche second Mrs De Winter and find out what really happened to Wife One. This was Du Maurier's favourite of her many books and she sets it in her own house of Menabilly near Fowey. A much finer novel than it is given credit for.

 George Eliot 'Middlemarch'

1030
spacer image spacer image right arrow
spacer image

'Middlemarch' is the novel which changed the possiblities of the novel form forever. Eliot creates a web of characters, each with his or her own unique voice, and whose every action affects everyone else. The 'Chaos theory' in human practice in the mid 19th Century!

A bored housewife looking for trouble? Or a female Flaubert? Was this novel worth five years of his life and the ‘dessication of his heart’.

‘All lies!’ said the mill owners. Gaskell was uniquely placed to register the terrible truth about poverty in 1840s Manchester. I know who to believe!

A jaundiced view of the human psyche or how we really are? Golding’s boys range from the ordinarily flawed to the psychotic. A terrifying and haunting tale.
