Editor reviews

Narrator and Dickens expert David Timson becomes a partner with the great novelist to bring to life this classic tale about a shipping magnate and his family and business interests. With his appealing voice and understanding of the story, Timson handles the accents and dramatic scenes with a thoroughly professional performance, but it’s his sensitivity to the portrayals of the individuals that makes this listening experience extraordinary. Timson’s talented and well-versed interpretation is a study rich in fascinating detail and engaging drama.

Summary

Dombey and Son is vintage Dickens and explores the classic themes of betrayal, cruelty, and deceit. The novel follows the fortunes of Dombey, a businessman par excellence, who craves a son to inherit his enterprises. His family, and especially his daughter, the sweet and good-natured Florence, bear the brunt of his frustrations.
