This is a wonderful way to revisit the novel I found complex as a teenager. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am now determined to find more classics to purchase and enjoy in the coming months! A superb listening experience.
Very exciting story. Loved the performance! Dickens is so sympathetic to all his characters, he fleshes them out beautifully.
So many reasons but mainly the different accents (which were impossible to understand), and the voice imitations. It really interfered with imagination and reduced the value of reading the book. Very disappointed!
Amazing performance of an amazing title. I can't believe I've never read this one before, and I am very glad I did so with this recording. Simon Vance is my hero. I highly recommend any book he reads - especially the Sherlock Holmes series!
I had a couple of long journeys, with not much else to do. Without this I doubt I would have finished this book. The first three quarters of the novel are hard going. However it completely redeems itself in the run to the finish. The final few hours of listening were a joy. Was it worth the slog? I think so, but only just......
I had not read this book since high school, but I remembered enjoying it then. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this classic again. The story and narration were great. Of course, this is a classic book, so expect more detailed descriptions and longer periods between action than you typically find in a modern book.
Simon Vance is one of the best Audible readers. He is good at bringing to life both the male and female voices without sounding too distracting.
I never realized how utterly entertaining Charles Dickens is...the characters are so well developed and SUCH characters! I will be listening to this one many times.
The disgusting picture of the women knitting as they counted heads being chopped off. But the dramatic and exciting ending was the best.
