Great Expectations delivered

This is an excellent story and Martin Jarvis does a fantastic job. All of Dickens characters come alive. It was like being in the front row of a play. Best audible book I have heard thus far.

Any additional comments?

This is one of the greatest works of English literature read with enormous intelligence and understanding by an excellent actor. I had read Dickens as a young man and liked him, but listening to this reading of Great Expectations was a revelation, showing me for the first time how truly great he is. If you only ever listen to one audiobook, this should be the one.
