great performance of a great text

one slight issue is that the enunciation wasn't always on the exactly correct words or syllables. So, sometimes, that made the very intricate and complicated sentences Dickens used difficult to interpret from the audio

The actor was amazing

Much more comprehensible with the narrator switching voices so well, made it feel like you were in the story

awesome narrator

I really enjoyed the narrator. He did a good job with the different voices, and I found some of his voices for the women to be very funny. but overall he was very soothing to listen to, and fit the part as Pip very well.

Great expectations personified

This is the second book by Charles Dickens I have read and the second Audible book I have listened to, (The first being Billy Budd by Herman Melville). The change in voices, the intonation of the narrative gave me the impression I was being read to by Charles Dickens himself. I highly recommend this book to any fan of Dickens work.
