    Story
    (103)

    William Dorrit has been a resident of the Marshalsea debtors prison for so many years that he has gained the nickname "The Father of the Marshalsea". However, his suffering is eased by his close bond with youngest daughter Amy, or "Little Dorrit". The dashing Arthur Clennam, returning to London after many years in China, enters their lives and the Dorrits' fortunes begin to rise and fall. A biting satirical work on the shortcomings of 19th century government and society.

    Michael says: "a melody of genius writer & compelling reader"
    "A cast of thousands..."
    Overall

    I read somewhere that Anton Lesser says he "doesn't do 'voices'", and he's right. He's more like a 'cast of thousands' - really! I'm just steadily purchasing anything he reads (though I draw the line at Jeffery Archer) and acquiring an exemplary education thereby!
    He peoples this world of Dickens so vividly it's hard to pull yourself away when the real world intrudes. I found myself thinking that certain actors in the reading were especially good and I must note who their names... and having to recall that it was one man only.
    Exhilarating!
