    Like Charles Dickens' other early novels, The Old Curiosity Shop was a huge success, even eclipsing The Pickwick Papers. The melodramatic saga of the flight of Little Nell and her grandfather captured the public's attention, so much so that people would wait in long lines for the release of the next installment of the saga. For the character of Little Nell, the beautiful child thrown into a shadowy, terrifying world, Dickens drew on a tragedy in his own life.

    Overall

    This is a great story, one of Dickens most popular in it's day. Unfortunately this reader is extremely leaden in his delivery, making this audiobook extremely boring, even painful, to listen to. I gave up about halfway through and downloaded one of the others - far superior!
