Publisher's Summary

The skilfully abridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Dicken’s; comic masterpiece, The Pickwick Papers, read by Dinsdale Landen. The Pickwick Papers began as a literary spoof centred around sketches of stock sporting fops by caricaturist Robert Seymour. Following the success of Sketches by Boz, Dickens was recruited to compose the words which would accompany the illustrations. Dickens quickly made the project his own and created some of his most popular characters: Samuel Pickwick, and his companions Winkle, Augustus Snodgrass, and Tracy Tupman.
At the height of its popularity The Pickwick Papers sold 40,000 copies a month and catapulted the 24 year old Dickens to fame.

A fun-packed romp

Where does The Pickwick Papers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A fine reading that I owned first on cassette tape. The reading is spirited and does a great job of bringing the range of characters to life.<br/><br/>If you know the book, this abridged production is edited in any interesting way: the story is presented without the ongoing Mr Jingle plot line. This works pretty well - it preserves some of the grab-bag feel of the book, and allows the audio to focus more on the central story of Pickwick himself. You do lose Mr Jingle, but if you haven't heard the story before, you won't feel that something is missing.
