    "A Dickens classic."
    Where does Oliver Twist rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Readers familiar with Dickens' work have learned to expect a somewhat circuitous plot and a loquacious narrator. That said, Oliver Twist deserves its wide appeal among readers of Victorian novels.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Keeble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    A very capable narrator keeps this lengthy narrative and its abrupt shifts in plot clear for the listener. Dialogue is aptly dramatized, enhancing Dickens' character development and keeping the story lively. Despite the length of this novel, I found myself always eager to return to Keebler's performance.

    "Distracting Unmatched Voices"
    Any additional comments?

    The archaic language of Dickens demands to be read with a stiff accent and strong diction. Mr Keeble performs these two characteristics admirably. However, the character voices leave something to be desired. They shift and change throughout the book and even within the course of a single conversation. The lack of continuity can at times be distracting and leave the listener wondering who's talking. In spite of this, still an overall strong performance for Dickens fans and better than many of the other options on Audible.
