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.

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.
