Was dead right about Deronda and Mirah - easy one. Completely wrong about Gwendolen. Who would have thought GE would leave that story wonderfully, rightly, unfinished? (I think the possibility of eventual marriage to Rex is hinted at, however.)

Yes, I finished DD even though I had no real time in which to read the final chapters. Enthralled as I was, I made the time - and the final pages turned out to be the most gripping, and in some ways unexpected, in the novel. I've been knocked sideways by what initially seemed a difficult read. Cannot stop thinking of the text and its implications. Brilliant stuff.
