#38 — The Lifted Veil

The Lifted Veil by George Eliot

  • Rating: 4/5
  • Starts off as a story of a dying man reminiscing about his life; the tone is very philosophical. Over time, it turns into a different story entirely – a more horrifying one
  • A lot is revealed in such a short time period; you still get a good sense of the characters and what they were like
  • This is a case where illness is used to create unreliable narration, but it works
