Fantastic story brilliantly narrated by Miriam Margoyles who brings every character to life and handles the complexities of the plot extremely well. Her mastery of dialogue and Dicken's language is unparalled. Although it is a long book I was enthralled throughout. Very highly recommended

Could be better presented

Poems are of course superb and the narration was good but very much let down by one poem running into another and the inability to navigate back to a section

Brilliant recording

Beautiful and meaningful narration. I have listened to this many times. Ralph Fiennes interpretation is excellent

There were some amazing poems but therr were others I did not enjoy. Often they were chosen to fit in with an historical event on the day rather than the beauty of the poetry (although beauty is subjective). The same poets kept cropping up -I had hoped for 365 different poets. Some of the poems were doggerel or from popular songs. As often is the case I could not see from the description which poems were being offered. The narration of both the poems and the description was good. If I had known the full content I would not have bought it
