Middlemarch

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: George Eliot

Narrated By: Nadia May

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: June 2011

Duration: 32 hours 3 minutes

Summary:

Dorothea Brooke is a thoughtful and idealistic young woman determined to make a difference with her life. Enamored of a man whom she believes is setting this example, she unwittingly traps herself into a loveless marriage. Her parallel is Tertius Lydgate, a visionary young doctor from the city, whose passionate ambition to spread the new science of medicine is complicated by his love for the wrong woman. Featuring a panoply of complex, brilliantly drawn characters from every walk of life, Eliot's masterpiece is a rich and teeming portrait of provincial life in Victorian England. Yet her characters' struggles to retain their moral integrity in the midst of temptation and tragedy are strikingly modern in their painful ironies. The incomparable psychological insight of Middlemarch was pivotal in the shaping of twentieth-century literary realism.

    Very impressed with the narrator’s ability to bring all these different characters to life. The book is good, but she made it even more enjoyable.

    I have laughed, cried, and smiled so many times as I listened to this wonderful narration of a novel I know well but hadn't read for many years. I didn't want it to end. So real was the characterization created by Nadia May. A magical experience, to disappear back into the gentle but searing language of Victorian satire, the playful moralizing that Thackeray and Eliot mastered so effortlessly. There is more truth, more deep understanding of flawed, but occasionally, brave humanity between the pages of Middlemarch than in a lifetime of offerings on Facebook or Twitter. Thank you so much Nadia May for 32 hours of pure joy.

    If you love English novels, this is a must! We learn about ourselves through George Eliot's characters. Are we more like the kind, compassionate Dorthea or self-centered Rosamond? We see how other lives are affected through the actions of these characters and can reflect on our own behavior. A great story about believing in someone when all others do not. Amazing narration!!
