I am a real lover of Dickens and looked forward to listening to this book. Unfortuanately the sound quality is so poor it is often hard to understand, at least for me. The reader sounds as if he is underwater.
There are some good new characters introduced, but at the same time many of the characters one has come to enjoy appear little.
As another reviewer commented, let some of the characters actually achieve something other than stabbing someone in the back. So many of the characters I loved are gone and so much time is spent on characters I really don't care about. this just seems a hodge podge of ideas rather than clear storytelling.
Well, the previous three were better in my opinion. as others have noted character voicies have changed. Most notably Aria. She sounds like a gutter snipe, not the daughter of a lord.
Only to get to the last book.
I tremendously enjoyed the first three books. The fourth is talk, talk, talk.
