I didn't find the accents difficult to understand and the acting is extraordinarily good for an audio book. The challenge with this dramatization is that it sounds like the soundtrack to a television version: it's often difficult to figure out where we are and who's there. It's from BBC Radio 4 but seems as though it was minimally reedited from a TV version. If you know the story already, this is a very fun experience. If you don't, you may be lost.
"A great abridged, dramatised version"
Bleak House is actually we quite a long book and filled with numerous minor characters. This is a great way of listening to the story in an abridged version
Getting the sense of the squalor
The dramatic music
When Jim dies
The dramatisation was excellent, a gripping and complex tale with great performances and atmospheric soundscore and music.
If you can't face reading the entire novel! LONG! This is the answer - great performances by an able cast.
"A classic production"
An hugely accessible and atmospheric production of Charles Dickens' classic story. Touching, absorbing, full of pathos and in places genuinely creepy, the story is been beautifully adapted and acted throughout.
