Great Expectation Appropriate Title

Would you listen to Great Expectations again? Why?

yes. To ensure I discover and get all the clues that link all the characters and situations in the story.

What other book might you compare Great Expectations to and why?

No other that I can compare with at this time.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

It was a good performance.<br/><br/>It seems the narrator had too low a volume at certain points. Part of Chapter 52 was not on the audio.

Who was the most memorable character of Great Expectations and why?

Pip. Obviously for his self realization of how he treated the other characters in his rise to Great Expectations and his actions once the truth was revealed.

Great performance by Peter Batchelor

I don't think the novel itself is in need of any reviews. The performance of Batchelor is truly wonderful as he transforms into the characters he is narrating. I look forward to listening to more of his readings.

Technically flawed version - Avoid!

Unfortunately this version is almost useless. The recording level is so quiet, that even with the volume turned up full, it is difficult to hear it, if there is background noise (I listen to audiobooks on the treadmill and in the car - in both cases, parts of the book were INaudible). The recording volume is inconsistent throughout, so that one chapter can be of an almost acceptable level and the very next one so quiet, that it is hard to make out. This alone would suffice to damn this recording in my view, though the reading is good enough (without it being spectacular in any way, though).

However, this version adds insult to injury: Most of chapter 52 is missing. After three paragraphs, the recording suddenly mutes and only resumes again at the beginning of the next chapter. Were this an amateur recording, that might be excusable, but not for an audiobook sold on this platform.

Avoid this one and get Martin Jarvis, who is an excellent reader and does, I am sure, a great job of Great Expectations.

Amazing and engrossing.

Quite simply dear audio 'readers' this is one simply engrossing version of the much loved tale from Dickens himself. There is very little to say other than out of all I have listened to, this one was by far the best. I do hop you will give this version a chance. You will be extremely pleased you did! Yours truly - Indie.
