This is only my third Audible book and while Mr Batchelor has a fine voice his personalizing of the characters was not an addition to the story. Many times it actually detracted fro the story. His voice of Messieurs Smallweed and Vols verged on the annoying and while both characters are annoying I think Mr Dickens words aline served the purpose. I will not avoid books read by Mr Batchelor but I won't be searching them out either. As to the story, there is a reason it is a classic. Dickens weaves a great plot with enough subplots to keep the listeners' interest. The story line is revealed enough at the right time so as to not injury the overall story but also not scarcely so much so as the listeners' intelligence is insulted. That the story was originally produced in serial from it must do as it does. Worthy of a third book and moving on to Evelyn Waugh next.

the beginning of chapter 13 plays twice and I think the end is cut off

really cannot recommend this recording, very poor performance, it's one monotonous drawl, completely emotionless and could have been done better by a computer

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
dowloaded 4 large audio files but none were playable on Audible or Windows Media. Can I have my money back?
