It's hard to imagine a better reader for this nineteenth-century classic than the acclaimed actress who played Maggie Tulliver, the heroine in "Masterpiece Theatre's" dramatization. Emily Watson's considerable dramatic gifts and obvious fondness for the story will transport the listener over the inevitable gaps in an abridgment that distills five hundred pages to two cassettes. Even an abridgment as good as this one can provide little more than plot and major characters, but, fortunately, Watson's rich characterizations provide the guiding hand needed during those occasional moments when the listener wonders if he has lost his way.
