    Deerbrook PDF Á Paperback deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBChances are good that in many a Goodreads shelf ordered by original published date there is a gap in female authored literature from the end of Austen to the beginning of the Brontës What few I have myself in that region were all save for this

    Deerbrook PDF Á Paperback deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBQuite a lot like Austen and Eliot with a swirl of Trollope for good measure For the first half of this very long book I thought it might be a perfect hidden treasure from the 19th century I read it on tenterhooks hoping against hope that the novel could sustain that level of excellence The characters the premise and the occasional emergence of a sly Austen ish narrative voice had me dreaming bigUnfortunately though the second half got a bit long and over the top it reminded me of Thomas Hardy The humor sort of evaporated and

    Deerbrook PDF Á Paperback deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBDeerbrook has been on a shelf in my office at home for decades I finally picked it up this winter It's 500 pages long and a bit of a snoozer at times but I found it fascinating Martineau was a reformer not so much a novelist and she has created 1838 I think? two highly intelligent young women and tracked their fates There is tons wrong with this book

    Deerbrook PDF Á Paperback deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBIf you're disappointed by my rating think about how much I'm disappointed myself to give only two stars to this classic Deerbrook has been described as the gap between Jane Austen and George Eliot as one of the first Victorian novels of English domestic life as an important novel that must be read by everyone who love 19th century classics even recommended for those who love Elizabeth Gaskell novelsI'm one of those readers and I needed to read this book and I don't regret it despite my rating As a female writer in the Victorian era Harriet Martineau deserves to be read because she did leave a legacy If you're interested in the history of the Victorian novel this is a book you should read whether you end up loving it or not for its importance in literature However if it's n

    Deerbrook PDF Á Paperback deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBThis published 1839 and as far as I can tell set in that time frame is exactly the sort of book I have been looking for to cast light on life and novels in the early Victorian period something occupying the time between Austen and later giants like the Brontes and Eliot Manners and customs have changed since Austen's time but certain aspects that I think of as Victorian have not really taken holdDespite some long winded passages I found this mostly fascinating I kept thinking as I was reading how it was like a dark version of Austen novels We have the marriage plot romantic misund

    Deerbrook PDF Á Paperback deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBSweet mother of pearl this was dull overblown plodding plotless verbosity at its worst And I say that as a lover of wordy victoriana like Collins Braddon LeFanu Ouida et al I made it through maybe 6 chapters before throwing in the towelit was hard to note specifics what with my eyes glazing over in a sheen of boredom In an effort to awaken my brain from its slumbering stupor I went back read the Scholarly Intro The editor makes some good points about the MCs which were difficult to keep straight what with the onslaught of Small Town Personages wandering in out of every freakin' scenebut I digress the tricky spot Martin

    Deerbrook PDF Á Paperback deerbrook ebok, Deerbrook ePUBBoth the author and the book were below my radar when a friend recommended it to me as a book to read It was hard to get hold of a paper copy in a sensible edition Surrey County Libraries don't have a copy the Penguin classics edition is listed on the Penguin website as being an eBook only but via abebooks I managed to get a new but out of print? Penguin classics edition Phew I really enjoyed the writing the combination of narrative and very readable philosophical excursions The story painted an interesting picture of English rural life in the early 19th Century with a combination of external effects disease economic downturn poor harvest and those local the interpersonal relationships class morality humanity The greater emphasis of the social aspects of the novel on morality as opposed to propriety puts Deerbrook higher up on m
