    Story
    (195)

    A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor - these form a series of events that change the orphaned Pip's life forever, and he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman. Dickens' novel depicts Pip's development through adversity as he discovers the true nature of his 'great expectations'.

    Robert says: "That it was by Dickens should have been enough"
    "Superbly Written and Flawlessly Narrated"
    Overall

    If it is possible to improve upon Dickens' work via narration, Griffins has managed to achieve that most difficult of feats. Each character is uniquely brought to life via his tempo, tone, and inflection. The book is brought to life in a rare manner indeed.

    I spend an average of about 10 hours a week listening to audiobooks and this one is in a class by itself.
