I am so excited to see unabridged versions of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy made available on Audible. Rob Inglis is simply the best narrator ever. He gives each character a unique voice and makes listening to these classics a delight!
All 4 books should be considered "must reads" for everyone.
The narrator ruins this book.
The story line is good, but I'd rather be locked in a room listening to someone scratch a chalkboard than listening to this.
Mr. Connelly, please make the publisher (or whoever?) re-record this book with either Len Cariou, Dick Hill or Peter Giles as narrator. Your writing deserves better than this.
Having loved the BBC film version of this book, I decided to take a chance on all 37 hours of unabridged audio. SO GLAD I DID!!! Dickens truly has a way with words. The way in which he exposes so many social ills of his day, setting them against the gentle unassuming kindnesses of Mr. Jarndyce and Miss Summerson is remarkable. Except for Christmas Carol, this is my first Dickens "read." Now I plan to listen to all of them!
I would also like to say a word about the narrator, Hugh Dickson. This book has so many characters and Mr. Dickson was able to give a unique voice to each and every one. EXCELLENT NARRATOR! I plan to do a search at Audible to look for other works narrated by Mr. Dickson.
