Rebecca Mead was a young woman in an English coastal town when she first read George Eliot's Middlemarch, regarded by many as the greatest English novel. After gaining admission to Oxford and moving to the United States to become a journalist, through love affairs, then marriage, and family, Mead read and reread Middlemarch. The novel offered Mead something that modern life and literature did not.

I'm only on chapter 3 with much more to go and it feels like I am already knee deep into something I don't want to keep listening to. This is not a memoir about Rebecca Mead as experienced through Middlemarch, but instead an exploration of George Eliot's life through Middlemarch, which is fine, but not what I expected.

Good reader. Seems to be a very intimate detailed account of the author known as George Eliot & the mid 1800's England customs. I enjoyed this for the little details of her life. I struggled with Middlemarch & greatly enjoy her other books.

This audio will be of interest to the George Elliott fan. It definitely made me think about re-reading Middlemarch and reading some of her other books for the first time. It made me nostalgic for novels of old like those by Edith Wharton and Henry James--I'm not sure who writes contemporary novels of similar scope and depth.
