    At the center of Middlemarch is Dorothea Brooke, a thoughtful and idealistic young woman determined to make a difference with her life. Enamored of a man who she believes is setting this example, she traps herself into a loveless marriage. Her parallel is Tertius Lydgate, a young doctor from the city whose passionate ambition to spread the new science of medicine is complicated by his love for the wrong woman.

    Deborah says: "Human nature revealed in all its complexity"
    "Truly wonderful"
    Overall

    This was the first novel I'd "read" of George Eliot's. What a prodiguously talented writer. I enjoyed the story, and considering my short attention span I managed to stay fulling engaged despite the profusion of detail that I suspect "is Eliot". The narrator was just as prodiguously excellent--I stood up and gave her a standing ovation at the end :).

    I recommend this listen.
