This is an excellent reading of one of Dickens' greatest works. The only drawback is the occasional use of background music, which is wholly unnecessary and a bit schmaltzy. However, there isn't much of this, and I would highly recommend the reading nonetheless.
I had forgotten how much I liked this book. Everyone is familiar with Book I - Lilliput. A few know Book II -Bbrobidgnag. Things get even more interesting in Book III, with its classic satire on abstruse scholarship. Book IV is the best of all. David Hyde Pierce could not be bettered as a reader.
