Good performance

While well read, this book is not well edited. All the minor mispoken passages are in place. Still better than ill read, well edited. David Case aka Frederick Davidson remains the first choice for Dickens.

Impressive reading

I am thoroughly impressed with George Hagan's characterizations. He so seamlessly shifts between the voice of a young girl, an old man, an odious villain, a timid wife that it is hard to believe it could be the same voice narrating and reading the characters' lines. I don't mind the occasional slips the other review mentioned. I think at 22+ hours the $6.79 price is an excellent value.
