    "The Pickwick Papers"

    Mr Woolfe is the perfect reader of the early Dickens. By some verbal miracle he makes even Sam Weller's awful jokes entertaining. His pace, characterisation and even the very occasional stumble give humanity to his work. Thank you.

    "Sleepy Pickwick"

    I have previously enjoyed the readings on the radio by Gabriel Woolf, especially those of Jerome K Jerome. Here, however, such a slow pace is adopted, such limited expression, that I did not wish to hear the well-loved story to its end. There may be many who will prefer this slow and deliberate pace. I want a reading with much more vigour and bounce, and with far greater differentiation of voices.
