Unusual radio dramatization

I didn't find the accents difficult to understand and the acting is extraordinarily good for an audio book. The challenge with this dramatization is that it sounds like the soundtrack to a television version: it's often difficult to figure out where we are and who's there. It's from BBC Radio 4 but seems as though it was minimally reedited from a TV version. If you know the story already, this is a very fun experience. If you don't, you may be lost.

A Bleak Full House

Where does Bleak House (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is a great adaptation of a classic story. Perhaps the best one I have heard!

What other book might you compare Bleak House (Dramatised) to and why?

It compares to some of the other great BBC adaptations that I have heard...I like the radio play elements of this.

Have you listened to any of Full Cast’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not heard this company do an adaptation of a book before. There were some great performances by great actors

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did react to the dramatic/suspenseful moments. They made me react in a strong way. Loved driving in the city and being surprised by the events

A classic production

An hugely accessible and atmospheric production of Charles Dickens' classic story. Touching, absorbing, full of pathos and in places genuinely creepy, the story is been beautifully adapted and acted throughout.

If you want the bones of the story listen to this

This is an excellent dramatisition but it is abridged a little too far for me. Sometimes I felt dragged rather than led through the story but if you want an introduction to the story it is an wonderful performance.
