If you could sum up Little Dorrit in three words, what would they be?

Compelling, fluent, beautiful.

What other book might you compare Little Dorrit to and why?

Nicholas Nickelby. Both have characterisations that are descriptively magnificent and story lines that 'race' along in a linguistically serpentine adventure.

Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

William Dorrit ( little Dorrit's father).

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Funny .......but yes if the truth must be known I have taken to extra long walks just to listen.

Any additional comments?

Charles Dickens is my penchant at the moment. Simon Vance has made the journey just that much more colorful.
