While there are a lot of intriguing and memorable ideas here, the story ultimately unravels and the ending is unsatisfying.
Listeners will be hard-pressed to find any pearls of wisdom amongst the cotton-wool dullness of rehashed ideas, lame examples, laughable acronyms and obsessive, maniacally dull procedures that stuff this book to bursting point.
I genunienely laughed out loud and was moved, touched, entertained and uplifted by this wonderful tale by Charles Dickens. Vance's narration brings out the many subtleties, flourishes, beauty and the fun and wit of Dickens' language; the deep characterization and cracking plot will keep you completely hooked.
May be better as a read book; plot got a bit unwieldy and it seemed like it needed more editing; interesting ideas but characters seemed 2-dimensional.
