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.

What a great story of suffering and redemption. To say nothing of the narration, which rendered the voices of so many characters with exceptional variety and realism.

Simply spectacular

What can I say that hasn’t been said about this classic. It is the first time I have read it and I found myself amazed at Charles Dickens’ writing. It should come as no surprise and yet I found myself over and over again saying to myself “this man is what every writer hopes to be”. The story, the imagery, the life of Pip and all the amazing characters. Miss Haversham, Joe, Herbert, Wemmick etc. beautifully realized, layered, human. A story of real life and feeling mg’s from back when we think they didn’t feel thugs as we do today. How wrong we are. This is an adventure of the ages with feelings of the ages that will always be important, relevant and a classic to measure all writing by.

Worth checking out

I have been let down with some “classic” authors or “classic” stories, but Dickens writing in the first person is great. There are a lot of twists and turns, some obvious and other not so much. But I do feel it is an entertaining experience and a great story.

what not to do

the story moves too slowly for me...
found myself drifting off in my own world instead of what was created...
