Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Daniel Deronda is a startling and unexpected novel…It is a cosmic myth, a world history, and a morality play.” A. S. Byatt, New York Times bestselling author
“It’s difficult to overstate the quality of this work. The precision with which narrator Juliet Stevenson brings each character to life is impressive. Each of them—the long-suffering Gwendolyn, the singular Mirah, even the altruistic Daniel himself—lives as a distinct personality in the telling of the story. Listening to Stevenson, one notes that the effectiveness of her presentation is due in large part to her understanding of George Eliot’s work. Far from being a story of star-crossed lovers, the novel explores the trappings of desire, consequences, and Victorian England’s reception of those of the Jewish faith. Stevenson’s thoughtful treatment of the audiobook’s emotion and commentary merits the thirty-six hours it spans, even for those already familiar with Eliot. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
