Audible Editor Reviews

Narrator and Dickens expert David Timson becomes a partner with the great novelist to bring to life this classic tale about a shipping magnate and his family and business interests. With his appealing voice and understanding of the story, Timson handles the accents and dramatic scenes with a thoroughly professional performance, but it’s his sensitivity to the portrayals of the individuals that makes this listening experience extraordinary.
