    A Signature Performance: Four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce delivers an air of lovable self-importance in his rendition of the classic social satire that remains as fresh today as the day it was published.

    Rose says: "Loved every minute"
    "Great reading of a great book"
    Overall

    I had forgotten how much I liked this book. Everyone is familiar with Book I - Lilliput. A few know Book II -Bbrobidgnag. Things get even more interesting in Book III, with its classic satire on abstruse scholarship. Book IV is the best of all. David Hyde Pierce could not be bettered as a reader.

  • Great Expectations

    Story
    (190)

    A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor - these form a series of events that change the orphaned Pip's life forever, and he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman. Dickens' novel depicts Pip's development through adversity as he discovers the true nature of his 'great expectations'.

    Robert says: "That it was by Dickens should have been enough"
    "Excellent reading but for the background music"
    Overall

    This is an excellent reading of one of Dickens' greatest works. The only drawback is the occasional use of background music, which is wholly unnecessary and a bit schmaltzy. However, there isn't much of this, and I would highly recommend the reading nonetheless.
