    The vast cast of diverse characters includes, among many others, the hypocrite Mr. Pecksniff, the undertaker Mr. Mould, the jolly Mark Tapley, the gentle Tom Pinch, the nurse who enjoys her bottled comforts, Mrs. Gamp, and the lovely Mary Graham, over whom the disagreements of the young and old Martin Chuzzlewits cause the younger to go to America to seek his fortune. Dickens' depictions of the United States are amusing and scathing, to say the least!

    Overall

    Audible's recordings of Charles Dickens's works had enchanted me and made me want to hear all of them. Then I downloaded this one. Usually, there have been several readers from whom to choose, but only one was available for this book. What a disappointment! First of all, the quality of the recording is poor. Second -- and perhaps the worse of my two complaints -- the reader's voice is monotonous and she chops sentences up into phrases that obscure Dicken's great sense of humor and destroy the flow of the story.
