Daniel Deronda

Gelesen von Becky Miller

(4,632 Sterne; 114 Bewertungen)

In this enduring Victorian classic written in 1876, two stories weave in and out of each other: The first is about Gwendolen, one of Eliot's finest creations, who grows from a self-centered young beauty to a thoughtful adult with an expanded vision of the world around her. The second is about Daniel Deronda, adopted son of an aristocratic Englishman who becomes fascinated with Jewish traditions when he meets an ailing Jewish philosopher named Mordecai and his sensitive sister, Mirah.

AMAZING

(5 Sterne)

A fabulous work full of complicated characters. It delves into so many areas of life during the author's day: class; religion; the assumption that breeding and money equal happiness...and more. A complicated and poetic work that I probably never would have made my way through as a reader of a regular book. The reader, Becky, was the best!!!! The way she altered her voice for the different chacters was so helpful in keeping them straight. She never stumbled!!! Her reading was almost flawless. I would REALLY like to communicate with her. My email is robbie44@satx.rr.com. Becky, please contact me!!!!!!!! Just one question: why were the last 3 chapters missing???????

enjoyable!

(5 Sterne)

Once I got into it (about chapter 5) I stopped falling asleep and after that it was 60 chapters of of insomnia until the end. melodramatic twists and turns and entertaining set pieces leaven what would otherwise be a bit of a preachy slog. The characters are real, even when they are really annoying or annoyingly perfect. Eliot does not pull punches in the portrayal of a psychologically abusive marriage. Lots of food for thought. I’m glad I discovered this less known behemoth of a book through this very fine reading on LibriVox.

I can't say I enjoyed this as much as Middlemarch; however, it again provides a wonderful window onto the thinking of the time. The status of the Jews is fascinating. The reader did stumble on some apparently unfamiliar words but I'm so grateful for the effort of any whole-book reader that I can't complain. Thank you.

Touching Story

(5 Sterne)

A truly endearing tale. It does a particularly good job of painting the lives and the place of Jews in the 19th century. Beautifully read. I want to give special thanks to the readers for many of the chapter introductions.

Interesting glimpse of the lives of women and Jews in the 19th C

Brilliant reading. Thankyou!

excellent story

(5 Sterne)

Thank you reader, you were wonderful!

GREAT READING

(5 Sterne)

A fine, if sometimes tedious, story made more interesting and enjoyable by the reader without whose interpretation I might have been tempted to quit. The only problem with the reading was the use of uninspired insertions of the reading of some of the foreign languages. It is interesting that Eliot believes that the Jewish mindset is present even if one does not know that he is Jewish. I wonder if Deronda's mother is autobiographical--she openly lives outside of accepted societal mores and ends up a broken, bitter old woman. Just asking.

Spectacular

(5 Sterne)

Wow. What an amazing book. Gwendolen and Daniel are such amazingly well-developed characters. I listened in every spare second. The reader is excellent - as some have noted, there are awkward inserts of the foreign language parts and a few mispronounced words, but that was nothing to me because she was so excellent at conveying the feeling of the book and the tone of each individual character. Excellent!
