Very Good Line, Very Bad Ending

"I shall be better for having known you."

I forgot how Daniel Deronda ends. I know that Gwendolen is bratty at the beginning, but she learns, and she belongs with Daniel. I could have chucked Mira off that boat at the end. You know how some people are too good, so good that they annoy you? I always like people a bit better when I know they have at least one flaw. No, you cannot count Mira's ridiculous self-sacrificing goodness as a flaw. At least, not a likable one.

So once again, I am left feeling a bit shorted and a bit lonely. Darn you Daniel.
