    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Overall

    Great book. Excellently narrated. This book is long and a little daunting to begin. I was eager to get back to it from the first hour. Time very well spent.

    Story
    (5)

    Charles Dickens made the first of 3 trips to the United States in 1842, when he was 30 and already famous, having written several novels including The Pickwick Papers. This book begins dockside in London and recounts his escapades throughout his journey in a witty and conversational style, with his characteristic irreverence. This work will make Americans acknowledge the debt owed by Twain, Mencken, and others to Dickens, the foremost man of letters of his day.

    Mark says: "Poor sound quality"
    "Distracting"
    Overall

    Content of book very interesting. The book is written in the first person making it difficult to enjoy narration by a woman.

    First published in monthly parts from March 1852 to September 1853, this novel follows the fortunes of three pedestrian characters; Esther Summerson, Ada Clare, and Richard Carstone. The story they tell embondies Dickens' merciless indictment of the Court of Chancery and its bungling, morally corrupt handling of the endless case of Jarndyce v. Jarndyce, giving the novel its scope and meaning.

    UU Ma says: "30 hours was too short for me"
    "Another triumph by Dickens"
    Overall

    Terrific book. Dickens is my favorite author and this book was wonderful. Robert Whitfield did an excellent job of narrating this classic work. Time well spent.
