finished it just in time for the November books - I agree with all the previous comments, it does feel rather dated. Having read it just after Middlemarch, I appreciated the lightness in tone, but in terms of social satire the comparison with Eliot (unfair, I know) is rather stark. I couldn't help thinking of Mr. Brooke when reading about hapless Petkoff.
