I've loved this book for a long time- I first read it the summer that graduated from high school and I've reread it several times since. Lesser's reading is masterful- relevatory is another adjective that comes to mind. His pacing is perfect and, as many other listeners have noted, he has an amazing ability to create individual and very vivid portraits of the many characters. For me his reading has opened up sections of this beloved book in a way that I would have missed no matter how many times I revisited it. Simon Vance reading Trollope is top notch. Prunella Scales' Wives and Daughters is extraordinary. Juliet Stevenson reading anything is not to be missed. However, none of these amazing artists is able to hold a candle to what Anton Lesser has done with this reading of Little Dorritt. More, please!
