George Eliot's novels often involve a kaleidoscope of characters, and MIDDLEMARCH is no exception. Dorothea and Rosamond are two young women whose marriages lead to inevitable conflict. The big themes involving social and personal responsibility, fate, and morality recur again and again as the listener meets the colorful residents whose lives are knit into those of Dorothea and Rosamond. Kate Reading handles the lively, often complex, prose with alacrity, dancing along Eliot's witty commentary with engaging skill. The novel is certainly long, but the diligent listener is rewarded with a story full of twists and turns. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
