An hugely accessible and atmospheric production of Charles Dickens' classic story. Touching, absorbing, full of pathos and in places genuinely creepy, the story is been beautifully adapted and acted throughout.
This is an excellent dramatisition but it is abridged a little too far for me. Sometimes I felt dragged rather than led through the story but if you want an introduction to the story it is an wonderful performance.

One of the best radio productions of Bleak House.
Professional cast who bring out the warmth and intense characters in this book so much, you feel you are there with them as they experience this tragedy. You can almost feel and smell the acrid atmosphere of the old foggy smelly Victorian London only Dickens is master.
The book is long and involved which the directors, producers and writers have lovingly adapted to ensure we have as much of the basics of the story of which I think is quite excellent.
Let's Make it Happen!
the plot, characters, child hangers all very rich and the reader will least respect of what is to come.
Bleak House is actually we quite a long book and filled with numerous minor characters. This is a great way of listening to the story in an abridged version

The dramatic music

"Unusual radio dramatization"
I didn't find the accents difficult to understand and the acting is extraordinarily good for an audio book. The challenge with this dramatization is that it sounds like the soundtrack to a television version: it's often difficult to figure out where we are and who's there. It's from BBC Radio 4 but seems as though it was minimally reedited from a TV version. If you know the story already, this is a very fun experience. If you don't, you may be lost.
"A Bleak Full House"
It is a great adaptation of a classic story. Perhaps the best one I have heard!
It compares to some of the other great BBC adaptations that I have heard...I like the radio play elements of this.
I have not heard this company do an adaptation of a book before. There were some great performances by great actors
I did react to the dramatic/suspenseful moments. They made me react in a strong way. Loved driving in the city and being surprised by the events
This might be just right for the English, but hard to understand for an American.
I had to give up, I suspect Dickens is better raw.
