This is not Dicken's best, but it is so well read that is is a delightful experience nevertheless. On an oblique note, I think Mr Boundaby is the inspiration for the Monty Python sketch "the four yorkshiremen". I would recommend this book it as long as you are patient, and don't mind a bit of excessive pathos at the end.

The story teller paused a lot but his impressions were great. The story is just long in my opinion.
A very good reading, perhaps with a little too much relish of Dickens' sardonic humour here and there. Bizarrely large gaps between paragraphs and chapters. All in all, excellent value for money.

I downloaded this as a way of listening to some of the classics, and I have to say that I enjoyed it more than any of the other Dickens books. Perhaps part of it was that it is much shorter than others. It may be heresy to some but I have felt the longer books to be too long and rambling. The plot was enjoyable, and the reading good. If only the other books were as sharp and to the point.
