I never appreciated Dickens's Great Expectations until I listened to this reading. The humor and language is exceptionally good even for Dickens's high standards but what made it perfect was Frank Muller's reading of it. Well paced and excellent voices for all characters. Five stars to both the book and the reader.
BK is one of my all time favorites as a book that I have enjoyed reading and feel inspired by several times in my life. I even like Constance Garnett translation. However, Mr Davidson is one of the most tiresome narrators I have encountered in audiobooks. The pretentious voice and repeated caricatures of characters' voices do not add any value. Granted it is MUCH better than Walter Covell's monotonous renderig, it just doesn't do justice to the book. I wish to see an unabridged version with Simon Vance or even Tim Pigott-smith, both of whom have done excellent rendering on abridged versions. Five stars for the book, zero star for the narrator
