    "Wonderfully read classic"
    Any additional comments?

    This is my of my top two all time favorite classics. I listened to several samples before choosing Dick Hill's version, and his expressiveness and character voices far surpassed my expectations.

    I admit the first time through this book can be confusing, but subsequent readings how Dickens to be a master craftsman.
