A story that has a version of Uriah Heap, a story within a story, touching on the themes of death and deliverance, anger and revenge. This is a classic short story well worth introducing to young listeners to before they embark on the longer voyage of Dickens' novels. Dickens employs wonderful character names here, such as Mr. Heap and here Mr. Slinkton. Cathartic and uplifting. (American accent narration.)

Dickens is about characterization. This particular narrator didn't pull it off. Plus, the quality of the recording was really poor. It made the story hard to listen to and impossible to enjoy.
