I suppose that one cannot complain too much if you don't actually have to pay for something - but this edition is a great disappointment.
Middlemarch, that otherwise hefty tome, is an ideal book to read in e-format to save wear and tear on the wrist. British readers, however, should be aware/beware that this is not Middlemarch-as-she-was-wrote but an American translation. As well as the disconcerting and disrupting `or' endings - ardor/ardour - this scanned edition is full of annoying typos and scannos that no one has bothered to correct, to the extent in some places that they actually change the sense of the sentence.
I cannot even suggest that you download the Project Gutenberg version instead (also free, as all their books are) because sadly, rather than offering a transcript of the original Blackwood single volume of 1874, they also have used an American edition, published by H. M. Caldwell Company, New York and Boston. At least, however, the rigorous Gutenberg proof-reading process should have eliminated most of the irritating editorial errors.
Please, someone out there, why can we not have English e-classics in their own language - not translations?!

In lieu of having time to read Middlemarch before I reached fifty, something I was aware I really should have done as the birthday approached, earlier this year I set about reaching my target through this audiobook and, with a concerted effort, I hit target last night- with 3 hours 40 minutes to spare before the day arrived.
This is an unabridged version of the great work. Every word and character presented with clarity and warmth. It is engaging, intelligent, intelligible, provoking, entertaining and, consistently, properly and seriously very very good. Many thanks to Juliet Stevenson for overturning the omission without leaving me thinking "This was cheating - I really should have read the book myself." Five stars are too few.

This is an American production, but is read with an almost perfect English accent. There are just a few American pronunciations, but these do not detract from the reading. The pace is good, and the reader brings out both the humour in the novel and the narrator's voice, which is strongly emphasised in the novel itself. I bought these CDs to listen to when I am driving, as I often drive quite long distances. At first, I put two of the CDs at a time in my CD changer, but have now added a third, as I never get bored or distracted and, just as the book is "unputdownable", these CDs keep you listening. They really make long journeys a pleasure. I have recently seen a British set of CDs of Middlemarch at £85, nearly three times as much as this set, so I think this one is excellent value for money. It would be equally good for someone who has never read the novel, and would make them want to read the book. The set includes an e-book, although this was missing from my set. However, I didn't bother to get it as I think the main attraction of this set is being able to listen to it. I would certainly recommend this set.

Mary Ann Evans -- far better known as George Eliot, of course -- was one of that mid-nineteenth crop of great English novelists whose work still grips the reader today. Indeed many critics consider her among the best of them and some regard her as one of the best Western writers of all time.

How good it is then to have two of her seven novels in this well-formatted and beautifully illustrated edition. So interesting to compare the work that is probably her masterpiece, "Middlemarch," with the very different but also brilliant earlier novel "The Mill on the Floss."

There are a lot of versions of ‘Middlemarch’ on the market and this Enhanced Ebook edition wins my prize for best value and best content. It’s only 99c and includes a revised, error-free text, stunning illustrations and a link to a free audio book. Need I say more?

Format: Paperback
Oh, there are some lovely parts in Middlemarch, such as Dorothea's heartbreaking marriage to Edward Casaubon, a scholar obsessively persuing academic work that had been superceded by current German scholarship. There are even moments of light humour. However George Eliot's prose style is a mixture of Casaubon's dryness and Dorothea's moralising.

Dorothea is our heroine, who ends up being a victim of her own virtues when she marries older scholar Edward Casaubon in the hope that she will be of use to him. Eliot shows us that Dorothea is naive and misguided but she doesn't really answer the obvious problem: that Dorothea's martyrdom is arguably selfish. She never really loves Casaubon, but the idea of being subservient and being able to have some small ray of light in the sunshine of a great man's wisdom. Not exactly a feminist figure. Casaubon's cousin, wayward artist and fervent romantic Will Ladislaw loves Dorothea from afar but this love does not seem to be based on very much. It rather defeats the point Eliot makes with Dorothea's marriage to Casaubon: that pity is not the same as love.

Subplots include Tertius Lydgate's attempts to advance medicine and the burden his marriage causes and gambling Fred Vincy's courtship of childhood sweetheart Mary Garth. There is a very large cast and a long time is spent on minor characters in order to build up the idea that Middlemarch is a stuck in its ways type of community. The only characters you really need to remember are Dorothea Brooke, Edward Casaubon, Will Ladislaw,Tertius Lydgate, Fred Vincy, Rosamond Vincy, Mary Garth and Nicholas Bulstrode (Bulstrode's involvement is not clear until about 500 pages in so try and remember who he is early on).
