great performance of a great text

one slight issue is that the enunciation wasn't always on the exactly correct words or syllables. So, sometimes, that made the very intricate and complicated sentences Dickens used difficult to interpret from the audio

awesome narrator

I really enjoyed the narrator. He did a good job with the different voices, and I found some of his voices for the women to be very funny. but overall he was very soothing to listen to, and fit the part as Pip very well.

Painful

I tried to read this in high school, again in college, and now as an adult. It’s been painful each time. So very long and boring.

INCREDIBLE NARRATION

I have listened to many books on Audible: This was by far the best narration, making each character come alive
