Summary

Summary

The Strategist Pick of Authors' Favorite Soothing Audiobooks

Dorothea Brooke is an ardent idealist who represses her vivacity and intelligence for the cold, theological pedant Casaubon. One man understands her true nature: the artist Will Ladislaw. But how can love triumph against her sense of duty and Casaubon’s mean spirit? Meanwhile, in the little world of Middlemarch, the broader world is mirrored: the world of politics, social change, reforms; betrayal, greed, blackmail, ambition, and disappointment. Dorothea Brooke is an outstanding heroine; Middlemarch is filled with characters that are vivid and true, comic and moving. It is one of the greatest novels in the English language.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There is no better companion for long socially distanced walks than all thirty-five hours of Eliot’s greatest novel, which is the most engrossing, gossip-filled soap opera imaginable. Juliet Stevenson’s narration is a miraculous performance, with each of the innumerable characters fully imagined and distinct. It is pure, glorious pleasure.” Garth Greenwell, New York Times bestselling author (audio review)
“I lost myself in the narration of Middlemarch, a book I could not get through in high school or college, but that drew me in completely because of the fabulous narrator, Juliet Stevenson…I became completely involved with all the characters; fell in love with some, hated others. Stevenson’s narration makes the book incredibly compelling.” Eilene Zimmerman, author of Smacked (audio review)
“I doubt if any Victorian novelist has as much to teach the modern novelists as George Eliot.” V. S. Pritchett, British writer and literary critic
