Anton Lesser is a one-man theater troupe composed of excellent actors. Dickens was a novelist par excellence. Together they've created a terrific listening experience. Major characters, from noble Nicholas Nickleby to odious Mr. Squeers, are highly memorable. Speaking of characters, Anton Lesser voices them so well that it can be unnerving. Surely, one thinks, that decorous female is read by a different actor than the drawling male aristocrat, but it's all Lesser. And he links the dialogue with interesting, well-paced narration. In between sections, a fine selection of classical quartets. Do listen.
