The narrator was so bad I had to buy a different version with another narrator
This is only my second Dickens. I preferred Great Expectations. It was a good story but there were too many characters for an audiobook. The performance was very well done. I preferred the female narrator to the male. For some reason a man playing a woman jarrred much more than a woman playing a man.
I downloaded this version, as it is the penguin version that I need to study for an enl-lit BA. The text of the book is modernised only very slightly. The story is Well read, however, there are great chunks of text missing from the audio, these will need to be read manually.

I had watched Bleak house on the television and wanted to read the book to get more from the story but really struggled to read it. I downloaded the audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed it and went onto read the book after, I find listening first helped me get into the style of writing more easily.
