It had been a long time since I’ve read Daniel Deronda but the story never gets old. Unlike most of Eliot’s novels that are usually set in a small, country village, Daniel Deronda is set in London. The politics in this book are global as opposed to local, raising the stakes and the danger. Expanding the scope of the story, he weaves an intriguing tale that keeps you interested until the very end.
If you are looking for a classic novel that relates to today’s society, Daniel Deronda is the perfect choice. In this book, Eliot explores gender inequality, racial identity, as well as social prejudice, adding to the meat of the story. One of the most interesting characters in this book is Gwendolen Harleth. Although Gwendolen is shallow and narcissistic, she’s also addictive. Philippe Duquenoy did a wonderful job with the reading and pulled me in from the start, making it easy to lose myself in the details of the story.
Two thumbs up!
