Dickens' novels are ideal as audiobooks -- with the right narrator. And this narrator is brilliant, bringing the large cast of characters to life, each with his or her own distinctive, appropriate, perfectly rendered voice. I have re-discovered Dickens since I joined audible.com, and I look forward to "reading" the next novel. They're all wise, witty, beautifully crafted stories that capture the age as well as tell the timeless truths of human nature.

The book is a classic and Hugh Dickson does a wonderful job of it. I have not heard the others, but Hugh does not disappoint and its enjoyable the whole way through. It's a long journey, so choose wisely.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is beautifully read and I would love to hear more books by this narrator. The story is long and very convoluted, but Dickens has such a wry sense of humour and the subject matter is still so pertinent that it is well worth investing the time.

A fantastic book to listen to. The narrator is amazing and his range of voices made the listen even more enjoyable.
There is both sadness and joy in this book and story lines that keep you gripped. Although it is very long it really is worth it!

Struggled at first to get into this novel but persevered and pleased that I did. A powerful novel with deep characters and told in a way that left me wanting more. The execution of this novel was outstanding and I look foward to listening to more of Hugh Dickson.
This is well worth the time. The many characters of this story are brought to life by the narrator with much humour and personality.
The story is long and involved but hearing the various characters brings the whole thing to life.
