Where does The Mill on the Floss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A favourite to listen to again and again. It's a hard act to follow for my next choice of audiobook.

What other book might you compare The Mill on the Floss to, and why?

Adam Bede and Middlemarch that were also written by George Eliot. I have found a challenge for reading/ listening in Eliot's stories, that I have yet to find in those that are written by modern authors.

Which character – as performed by Laura Paton – was your favourite?

Maggie Tulliver, the heroine and victim.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, this story weaves images of characters, places and situations that are too good to rush, in case I missed a bit and had to retrace my listening.

Any additional comments?

I was unprepared for the ending, it was worthy of the anticipation created by Eliot.I enjoyed listening to the different voices that Laura Paton portrayed.
