Superb Dickens!

This recording is absolutely delightful. Alex Jennings, a terrific English actor, portrays seemingly hundreds of characters with complete confidence and rich humor. He clearly relishes the joyous magic of Dickens' prose. Although not one of Dickens' most well-known novels, OUR MUTUAL FRIEND offers plenty of his special plot-twists, delicious characters and mordant social observations. His portrait of the eerie, nocturnal Thames and its denizens is particuarly memorable.

Timeless

As with all of Dickens' novels, Our Mutual Friend is a face off between the worst and the best of humanity. There is, today more than ever, a need to witness goodness triumphing over evil. And the myriad twists and turns that take place before all is put right.
