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

The actor was amazing

Much more comprehensible with the narrator switching voices so well, made it feel like you were in the story

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.

Wow - great narration, great story, I’m a fan!

I was worried that this would be difficult to understand, expecting it to be written in old English or otherwise difficult for a modern American reader, but it was actually very clear and a great story. Narration is top notch. I’m becoming a fan of Dckens!

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.
