A complex plot of love and inheritance is set against the English legal system of the mid-19th century. As the case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce drags on, it becomes an obsession to everyone involved. And the issue on an inheritance ultimately becomes a question of murder.

Absolutely terrific. Not only is it a great story but the narration with dozens of different voices is like listening to a play. Except the play goes on for days, so by the end the characters are unforgettable and will stay in memory for a lifetime. Bravo to the actors!
Intricate plot, the way people put together such complex sentences back then.
Grandpa Smallweed was a complete hoot.
The voice of George was perfect.
A young man named Guppy was also spot on.
After listening to it for the three weeks, I went right back to the beginning and listened all over again. What a classic.
Not better, but the good performances certainly enhanced and provided an excellent reading of a fantastic story.
Teresa Gallagher's performance was lovely. Her voice is so melodic and her children's voices are just lovely. I especially loved Charley. And Sean Barrett was a perfect counterpoint to Ms Gallagher's voice. His dour British accent was exquistely, well, Dickenisian.
