Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

This Penguin Classic is performed by Juliet Aubrey, who won the BAFTA for Best Actress for her role as Dorothea in the BBC serial Middlemarch. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Rosemary Ashton.   

George Eliot's most ambitious novel is a masterly evocation of diverse lives and changing fortunes in a provincial community. Peopling its landscape are Dorothea Brooke, a young idealist whose search for intellectual fulfillment leads her into a disastrous marriage to the pedantic scholar Casaubon; the charming but tactless Dr Lydgate, whose marriage to the spendthrift beauty Rosamund and pioneering medical methods threaten to undermine his career; and the religious hypocrite Bulstrode, hiding scandalous crimes from his past.

Beautifully done!

I wish all BBC Masterpiece actors would read the audiobooks for the stories they’ve portrayed!! This story is read by Juliet Aubrey, who played Dorothea in an adaption of Middlemarch. She did a marvelous job! I could almost see the movie in my head as she read. And this is a beautiful story.

A good read

I was so happy to add one more classic to my listening library. Very similar to Pride and Prejudice. Knowing the background of the author made this all the more fascinating. A quality read.

Beautiful narration brings this wonderful book to life

This was my first introduction to a book by George Eliot. What a story. And the narration hi Juliet Aubrey was perfect. I can’t believe how many characters she managed to bring an individual voice to, and I hope to hear more audiobooks by her in future. I will also be seeking out more books by George Eliot.
