Teaser Tuesday: Middlemarch

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,  hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Basically, open the book you’re currently reading and share a couple of sentences from that page on your blog.   Avoid spoilers of course.

My teaser this week is from George Eliot’s Middlemarch.

Away from her sister, Celia talked quite easily, and Sir James said to himself that the second Miss Brooke was certainly very agreeable as well as pretty, though not, as some people pretended, more clever and sensible than the elder sister.  He felt that he had chosen the one who was in all respects the superior; and a man naturally likes to look forward to having the best.

  1. Great teaser! Eliot is another author that I have never read. This one sounds readable. My teaser is from Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel. Happy reading!

  2. How is the book so far? I don’t really know anything about Middlemarch.

  3. I’m reading Middlemarch too. Are you enjoying it?

  4. Fabulous teaser. I should really read this book. My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

  5. The less clever one is superior? Interesting… I hope you’re enjoying it! My teaser is here.

  6. Thanks all for stopping by!

    Scott and Linda – I am enjoying Middlemarch quite a bit. It has impressed me straight off with the writing.

    Lit Omnivore – Oops, without the context, it does get a bit confusing. Sir James prefers the elder sister because he thinks she is the most clever. He thinks the younger sister is all right, but he finds the elder sister superior.

  7. I can’t wait to read your (and everyone else’s) final thoughts on the book 🙂
