    "darkness, with grasping greediness lose."
    What did you love best about Charles Dickens's Our Mutual Friend (Woman's Hour Drama)?

    I love the way the way it is juxtopposed with Dickens's other books. The way it is so dark with sunshine just behind the darkness. The language is so beautiful and lyrical it is easy to listen to and it fleshes out the storyline. I also love the way Dickens writes so that his readers can see the people and places in his book. The man was a genius!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Charles Dickens's Our Mutual Friend (Woman's Hour Drama)?

    There are so many memorable moments that it is hard to write down just one. I guess it would be when Mr. Boffin was pulled into the morass of his own greed.


    What about Alex Jennings and Pauline Quirke ’s performance did you like?

    They each had voices that changed with the individuals that they represented, not only that, they expressed the joy, fear, anger or hatred that was expected.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting however I restrained myself.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very enriching book, get it you'll enjoy it.
