The Martian: A Novel by George Du Maurier

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Martian_(du_Maurier_novel)
The Martian, by George du Maurier, published in 1898 (UK edition) is a long (471 pages), largely autobiographical, novel that describes the lives of two bosom friends, Barty Josselin and Robert Maurice, starting from their school days in Paris in the 1850s. Written in long descriptive passages with very little dialogue and many digressions, the book had considerably less success in its time than its predecessor, the popular Trilby.
if you know german, read the german language wikipedia entry instead. it is a lot more positive and detailed.
