So much more than the films

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 13-04-13

I like to listen to Dickens stories when driving, especially when driving long distances. Dicken's use of language is always a delight and the names of his characters bring a smile to my face. I also tend to choose those books that have Martin Jarvis as the narrator because he brings the characters to life just by the different voices and accents. Oliver Twist is a much longer book than I thought from watching the television adaptations and the films. More happens after the failed burglary than I realised.
