A fun story - bit silly to have Dickens, Artful Dodger show up - but I understand the reference, even though the attempt to mimic Dickens' atmospherics is strained at times.
It sounds like I am alone in my assessment of the narration - the droning, whiney voice was hard to deal with. Also could not help noticing that there was the same "once-size-fits-all" voice for each upper class Brit, and the voice of Ikey is straight from Fagin's in the "Oliver" musical.So I would recommend for the car ride - otherwise stick to "Oliver Twist" and "The Fatal Shore".
