    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!

    The book may be wonderful but the recording/narrator is so muffled that I'll never know.

    Although not as widely known as some of his other works, Dombey and Son is nevertheless one of the greatest novels by Charles Dickens. It was published in installments between 1847 and 1848, when Dickens was at the height of his powers, and it marks a transition into a more mature style from his early period of success.

    Thomas says: "A great way to spend 13 hours!"

    Overall

    I for one throughly enjoyed the reading and story of all three volumes of Dombey and Son. Charlton Griffin was throughly entertaining and although I am not astute enough to comment on the veracity of his English accent, his range of characters make him one of the most enjoyable readers I have heard.

    The story stand up well among the dozen or so Dickens works I am familiar with and should be a source of enjoyment to any fan.
