A book lover with a romantic soul, but willing to take a leap of faith. I LOVE to get sucked into a story and live there for a bit.
I had expected a version of the Dickens story, but this turned out to be a horrible mishmash of people talking about the story (often over top one another). It was weird and difficult to listen to. There was also some strange and distracting "mood music" in the background that made it even more difficult to understand. I am WHOLLY disappointed!
This short piece from Frances Fyfield is an astute and ultimately uplifting investigation into Diccken's last, unfinished novel. Riveting. Recommended.
