    One of the masterpieces of English fiction, Daniel Deronda tells the intertwined stories of two characters as they each come to discover the truth of their natures. Gwendolen Harleth is the beautiful, high-spirited daughter of an impoverished upper-class family. Daniel Deronda, the adopted son of an aristocratic Englishman, is searching for his path in life.

    Tad Davis says: "An intense novel with a few flaws"
    "Two great stories; a pity it's called a novel, tho"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Daniel Deronda to be better than the print version?

    no.


    What other book might you compare Daniel Deronda to and why?

    Eliot likes to have beautiful, vain women and see the trouble they get into or cause. So half of the novel is as we might expect--and great. The Deronda half of the book is less expected, and somewhat less convincing.


    What does Nadia May bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does the accents and the idiosyncrasies of the speakers very well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but some of the accounts are moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Eliot is for knowledgeable, sophisticated readers. It helps to be interested in subtle psychology; to like little essays along the way; and to like, or tolerate, learned allusions. Not everyone should try Eliot.
