nice reader

Would you listen to Nicholas Nickleby: Dickens on Dickens again? Why?

Very enjoyable low-key reader. Fun story, a little sappy even for Dickens. I would listen again.


Who was your favorite character and why?

John Browdie. He is steady, has a great sense of humor. No nonsense.


What about Gerald Dickens’s performance did you like?

Did a good job with the different voices, but the narration was especially good - like he actually knew the meaning of what he was reading.
I'm sure it's not his fault there are some editing errors in the last quarter of the book, where you hear him restart sentences or correct himself.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Dickens always makes me laugh out loud. This story did have me crying at several points, mostly related to Smike.


Any additional comments?

Really one of the best Dickens readers I've heard.
