A pretty fascinating book and another one that has initiated a bit of a turn of the century (19th into 20th that is) reading binge in me. Really interesting to compare other books of a similar era with this one, especially those by American writers. There is such a strong flavour of modernity about them, to me the themes and even the language often is so much more of contemporary times than the historical books they could be seen to be. In fact the themes within this one are not that far fetched from that other much more recent phenomenon of another Carrie in the big smoke with her girlfriends (I speak of course of Sex and The City). Read it and see if you agree! Next recommendation after this one: The Awakening by Kate Chopin. Similar era and similar early stirrings of feminism.
