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.

Great expectations personified

This is the second book by Charles Dickens I have read and the second Audible book I have listened to, (The first being Billy Budd by Herman Melville). The change in voices, the intonation of the narrative gave me the impression I was being read to by Charles Dickens himself. I highly recommend this book to any fan of Dickens work.
