Audible Editor Reviews

The Pickwick Papers, Volume 1 is Charles Dickens' first novel, written under the pseudonym of "Boz". These related serial adventures center on Samuel Pickwick's and his friends' travels through the English countryside. Audio performer Patrick Tull shows genuine enthusiasm for the tales. His talent particularly shines when he creates characters' voices, each of which brims with a unique accent, pace, and pitch. From spinster aunts and wily servants, to innkeepers, actors, and widowed landladies, Tull breathes life into them all.

Pickwick Papers

I listened to this performance as an audio cassette about two years ago. It was the best recorded book I listened to that year. Patrick Tull has a wonderful sense of the rhythm, variety and force of Dickens' prose. The book itself is wonderfully full of life and humor. I never understood Dickens' humor until I listened to Pickwick Papers. I've never known Tull to give less than a superlative reading.

I almost felt embarrassed laughing out loud to a Dickens novel, but this was a great reading. As good as any contemporary humour.
