The Old Curiosity Shop is essentially a soap opera and so much better than the TV soap operas today as it is filled with memorable characters and events. It was written in installments in England and crowds used to gather at the harbor when the next installment was sent to America. I can see why. I found myself looking for excuses to take a long drive or a long walk so I could listen to what happened next. Some people did not like the narrator but I thought he was great and perfectly fit the book. It was a wonderful listening experience.

Dickens has the ability to draw you into his fictional world like few others. This was a wonderful book with unforgettable characters. I hated to have it end. Narrator Covell did his usual fine job.

Mr Covell's American accent and uncertain characterisation make this a less than delightful listen. The sound quality is no great shakes either. The novel, however, is very much as usual
