outdated social concern
Read this for a book club, but did not really like it that much. Hard to relate to the social concerns of the middle class in that time period.
I find that the period's middle class portrait is interesting, but less relevant to the enjoyment of the tale; it's far more eye-grabbing to notice how timeless the discussion is. It's shocking to see how human prejudice and conventional ways in the face of the new remain the same.
