Publisher's Summary

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final novel by Charles Dickens, unfinished at the time of his death.
Written in 1890, the story is a murder mystery in which Edwin Drood is supposedly murdered. The novel investigates the characters in a distinctly Dickensian manner from the suspicious and tormented Jasper to the Reverend Crisparkle to Princess Puffer, the enigmatic Datchery and finally the gravedigger and his obnoxious but perceptive boy assistant. But who is the murderer? We will never know....
Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced. His innate comic genius and shrewd depictions of Victorian life - along with his memorable characters - have made him beloved by readers the world over.

Avoid! Get another narrator.

I do enjoy unabridged Dickens read by Brits, but the narrator is truly dreadful, although likely the producer is more to blame for not forcing the voice actor to do more takes. The stuttering and stammering get increasingly annoying and more frequent as it goes along.
One of the lowest quality narrations I've heard here. Content excellent as always from Dickens, so I'm willing to try another version.
Avoid this one, even if the price is tempting.

Awful reading

I've been listening to books on tape, cd, etc. for almost 20 years, including almost all of Dickens, and this is absolutely the worst reading job I've ever heard - please remove this version from your list, since it will give YOU a bad reputation.
