Scott Brick, the narrator, has such an engaging manner it was a real pleasure to listen to him telling the story. As for the story itself it, was seriously unnerving. To such an extent that while I will often listen to audio books to help me nod off at night this story kept me awake and when I did get to sleep my dreams were full of "virals" and the like. Notwithstanding this a really great listen.
Alex Jennings brings this wonderful book to life with his wonderful reading. Dickens extraordinary ability to distill the essential elements of the human condition in beautiful succinct prose left me spell bound. I look to listening to it again. For what its worth, Jennings reading of of "Pompeii" by Robert Harris is also a very good reading of an excellent book.
