    "A new art form"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Intricate plot, the way people put together such complex sentences back then.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett and Teresa Gallagher – was your favorite?

    Grandpa Smallweed was a complete hoot.
    The voice of George was perfect.
    A young man named Guppy was also spot on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    After listening to it for the three weeks, I went right back to the beginning and listened all over again. What a classic.

    "Great reading of a fabulous story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bleak House to be better than the print version?

    Not better, but the good performances certainly enhanced and provided an excellent reading of a fantastic story.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett and Teresa Gallagher – was your favorite?

    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.
