What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Being able to understand the narrator
What was one of the most memorable moments of Middlemarch?
I only got through 3 or 4 chapters
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrea Giordani?
Any additional comments?
I listened to this version for several hours, but it was so difficult to understand that I had to switch to another edition. I guess I'm too much of an ugly American...but I could not understand this narrator without devoting all my attention to it.

I would have enjoyed Middlemarch more if it hadn't been so difficult to decipher among the endless mispronunciations: craddles, authorrorships to name a couple. I understand that to record a reading of Middlemarch is a feat, but pronunciation is sort of important for the listeners comprehension. I did persevere and it got easier to understand once I got used to the rhythm of the reading, but I feel like I missed out on a whole bunch of subtleties.
