Penguin Classics presents the audiobook adaptation of Dombey and Son, Charles Dickens’ classic tale of family and power. Read by Andrew Sachs. Dombey and Son are both a firm and a family and the ambiguous connection between public and private life lies at the heart of Dickens’ novel. Paul Dombey is a man who runs his domestic affairs as he runs his business: calculatingly, callously, coldly and commercially. Through his dysfunctional relationships with his son, his two wives, and his neglected daughter Florence, Dickens paints a vivid picture of the limitations of a society dominated by commercial values and the drive for profit and explores the possibility of moral and emotional redemption through familial love. Part of a series of abridged, vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
