Rosalyn Landor's strong narration lends itself to George Eliot's fictional town of St. Ogg. The novel centers on Maggie Tulliver, whose limited wealth and exceptional beauty cause turmoil in her life. The story begins when Maggie is a child, and Landor captures her girlish voice adeptly, adding dramatic effects to her passionate and often reckless comments. As Maggie grows into a young woman, Landor tones down her rural accent. Landor also exhibits her skills in her vocal characterizations of the many secondary characters. From the stuffy Aunt Glegg to the stubborn Mr. Tulliver, Landor smoothly shifts between figures who are diverse in class and personality. Landor's mastery of rural British dialects greatly enhances Eliot's realistic dialogue. D.M.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
