Publisher's Summary

The Pickwick Papers was Dickens' first novel. Retired businessman and confirmed bachelor Mr. Samuel Pickwick, Esquire, embarks on a journey through the English countryside accompanied by three fellow "Pickwickians": Mr. Tupman, Mr. Snodgrass, and Mr. Winkle. It is a joy to hear of their misadventures in search of stories and characters of interest and the repeated efforts of the quick-witted Sam Weller (Mr. Pickwick's manservant) to rescue them all from disaster. With a host of unlikely and wonderful characters, this masterpiece of comic writing is still to this day one of literature's most beloved works.

Great Expectations is arguably Dickens' finest work. Chapter one opens up in a lonely graveyard on the marshes in Southern England, where we first meet young Pip and witness a terrifying meeting with an escaped convict. The novel charts the life of Pip from boy to young man, during which Dickens treats us to array of unforgettable characters, from the lovable Joe and the servile Pumblechuck to the jilted Miss Havisham and the faithful Herbert Pocket.

    "A great collection"
    What did you love best about The Pickwick Papers & Great Expectations?

    Both books are classics, and, I'd never heard of combining two books like that before.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Everyone, Pip in particular, seeing his journey from child to man was amazing.


    What about Tadhg Hynes’s performance did you like?

    Everything, though at times his use of different accents made it difficult to understand whom he was voicing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    A must-have for fans of Dickins works.

    Story
    "Did not hold my interest."
    What would have made The Pickwick Papers & Great Expectations better?

    For the story to not drag on for so long. I really only wanted the book called Great Expectations.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will most likely stick to urban fiction or African American fiction, but sometimes i will be looking for a financial book or two.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tadhg Hynes?

    Am not sure on this one.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    None at this time except I wish I could switch this book out for another title.
