Mary Ann Evans is a formidable intellect. "Middlemarch"may be the best novel in the English language. It takes one's breath away. In one of the vicar's wives, she gives us some comedic writing, very like the bright and sparkling Jane Austen, but mostly she shows us ourselves and our friends and families in high relief.. Genius.
One of the best
Dorothea and dr. Litigate but the cast was so large and interesting it seems unfair to choose.
The narrator for this classic is astounding. She handled all the characters, male and female, (and there were many) with clear distinction of voice and nuance. What an amazing talent
I love books. Love to read them, listen to them, and build my stash of them.
This story seemed as if it would never end. It was drawn out in some places, yet held my interest enough to keep going - although, I'm afraid if it weren't an audio book I would have had great difficulty finishing it.
Narration was very well done, with the different voices actually sounding like more than one person reading.

At last I've read Middlemarch. A really good story filled with insights into the human character.
Eliot does not disappoint in this exquisite work. Characters will stay with you long after you finish the novel.
Outstanding on every front. The psychology of every character illuminated gradually by Eliot could be lifted and placed in the modern era and there might be just at home.
This was a fantastic story and wonderfully narrated! Stevenson portrays the characters in a lively and captivating way.
I highly recommend it!
