Publisher's Summary

The Baron of Grogswig abandons his riotous ways of carousal and gaiety, and settles down - only to discover that simple domesticity is not the peaceful life he had envisioned. But, just when the Baron feels he can't take it any more, an unexpected visitor changes everything.

(P)2007 B.J. Harrison

Enjoyable quick listen

Quick little Dickens story of little significance. The narration was fine for this simple story.

Victorian Mid Life Crisis

Another great classic tale. This short story from Dickens tells of the changing fortunes of the Baron of Grogswig. A happy man until marriage changed him. You will have to listen to find out. Superb narration from BJ Harrison as well.

A Pipe and A Beer

This was a quick and outstanding story. Harrison was great as always. This is the story of a male midlife crisis.

Above average reader. Below average Dickens story.

Well read. Understandable and followable narration with a flourish. Yet i feel it could be improved upon by a different narrator. The story however, might be too simple, even for Dickens. A light, and not unenjoyable, quaint little curiosity for the Dickens completist like myself.
