    "Dickens does Dickens"
    Would you listen to Nicholas Nickleby: Dickens on Dickens again? Why?

    Definitely, I don't know why having a relative read the story should make it feel more intimate but it does. Obviously a professional at reading his great grandfathers books he brings a cultured, refined approach to a great Dickens novel


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nicholas Nickleby: Dickens on Dickens?

    The beating of Squeers is wonderful. As usual in Dickens bad characters get some kind of come uppance and he gets it in such a wonderful way.


    What about Gerald Dickens’s performance did you like?

    The feeling that he truly believes in all the characters, that he treats them like friends


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's Dickens so you run the entire range of emotions


    Any additional comments?

    Dickens on Dickens brings a classic story a new edge. Well worth the time invested in listening.

    "Narration is the real joy here"

    I bought this title primarily for the skill of the narrator. Having previously bought Oliver Twist; Dickens on Dickens, I knew that I was in for an auditory treat. Gerald Dickens brings the characters to life, showcases a wide range of voices, comic, sinister, serious, and humourous as each case requires, dealing as adroitly with the female as the male. Charles Dickens gave public readings of his works, and I like to imagine that his vocal talent and characteristics are echoed in this narration, which gives it an edge over other narrations. It's a joy to listen to and the story is, of course, excellent as well. I commend the title and others in the series, especially for fans of Dickens' work.

    "Wonderful narration of a wonderful novel!"

    Gerald Dickens is a wonderful narrator! I am sorry that Audible / Amazon do not seem to have chosen his readings for the Whispersynch versions. It is still easy to follow along on the Kindle version by using the table of contents. But frankly, reading it to myself is much less engaging than listening to Mr. Dickens.

    Any additional comments?

    I think this narrator is great. Even my 11 year old son was drawn into the story - due largely to the appealing performance. We especially enjoyed Mr. Dickens reading of Fanny Squeers lines.
