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. As their stories interweave, George Eliot creates a richly nuanced and moving drama, hailed by Virginia Woolf as 'one of the few English novels written for adult people'.

I loved the book; would not be able to complete it without an audiobook version. It is a wonderful, beautiful novel. The reader is superb. She brought every character to life.

I cannot remember the last time I enjoyed anything as much as I enjoyed hearing Juliet Aubrey reading Middlemarch. She is absolutely outstanding. Every inflection of her voice is perfect. Middlemarch is regularly voted as one of the finest novels in the English language, and here all the characters are brought to life with vivid clarity.
