Publisher's Summary

Introduced, annotated and edited by Dickens scholar Michael Norris, here we have insightful, vivid, first-person accounts of Charles Dickens by the people who knew him best, including sons Henry Fielding Dickens and Charles Dickens Jr., daughters Mamie and Kate Dickens, colleague and authorized biographer John Forster, and others. Taken together, these writings provide a stunning portrait of Dickens as a living breathing man: friend, father, collaborator and citizen. This outstanding audio edition is beautifully narrated by Britain's Tanya Bartlett.

    Story
    "Fascinating content, strange narration!"
    If you could sum up They Knew Dickens in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating, well researched.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The detail really gives a well rounded picture of Dickens character.


    What three words best describe Tanya S. Bartlett’s performance?

    Monotonous, disjointed, mispronounced.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but narration makes it very difficult.


    Any additional comments?

    Fascinating content all but ruined by terrible reading.
