Inhaltsangabe

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, and reforms, as well as 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.

Absolutely fabulous

I absolutely LOVE Juliet Stevenson's reading. Not just her voice but the way she pauses (and THAT she pauses!) when reading dialog passages is so important, it's a revelation also for my own podcast reading. Highly recommended (I don't need to recommend the book here...it's a classic that deserves re-re-reading.)

Interessanter Rückblick ins 19. Jahrhundert mit atemberaubenden guter Sprecherin

Das Buch liefert interessante Einsichten in englisches Leben und Klassendenken im 19. Jahrhundert.

Die Sprecherin ist schlicht genial. Ihr könnte ich sogar beim Vorlesen des Telefonbuchs zuhören.

Cuts a groove in the mind and heart

One of those rare works that educates, inspires and elevates the soul. What kind of woman must this author have been?

19. Jahrhundert, England,, great story

Wunderbar erzählte Gesellschaftsdarstellung der Menschen einer fiktiven englischen Stadt im 19. Jahrhundert. Die Beziehungen der Menschen, Aufstieg, Liebe, Untergang und Verlust sind mit genauem Blick und feinem Humor sehr spannend vorgetragen. Die Sprecherin findet für alle Charaktere einen eigenen Stil, vielseitig und klar erkennbar.

somewhat repetitive, narration not that great

Was genau mochten Sie an der Sprecherleistung? Was hat Ihnen nicht gefallen?

At first, I was very pleased with Stevenson's performance. After a short while however it became clear, that her repertoire was exhausted after 4 or 5 characters and everyone startet to sound just like everyone else. Since there are so many characters in this novel, this problem became annoying quite soon.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

The storyline is what it is. Eliot leans more towards the longwinded side of things, at times it's quite repetitive. When you read this book, you start to scan over pages when there's noting going on. Having to listen to it in every last detail is quite a different experience, and not a good one I'd say.
There is this part about the Middlemarch election, which bored (and at the same time annoyed) me quite a bit.
