Dickens + Jarvis = Brilliant
What made the experience of listening to Oliver Twist the most enjoyable?
Martin Jarvis makes this well-known tale come to life by the vividness of his characterisation and breadth of expression. He is unmatched as a narrator of Dickens' prose, which is, as always, a treasure trove of delight.
