    John Forster, Charles Dickens' best friend and literary executor, compiled this treasure trove of letters, anecdotes, and personal recollections. They give us a fascinating insight into the life of one of literature's most beloved authors.

    Overall

    This is the worse audio recording I have ever heard from Audible. The narrator sounds as if she is reading underwater or, perhaps, like one of those people at a party who gets hold of a helium balloon. Maybe they recorded it at the wrong speed or something.

    This is a classic biography of Dickens. Because it is such a long book, I decided to make the best use of my time and listen to it on audiobook. I couldn't stand more than a couple of hours. I guess I'll have to go back to the paper version.

    If you are even considering this audiobook, be sure to listen to the sample first.
