narrator

The narrator of this book was incredible. The book itself I am sure has been reviewed enough.

So far, my favorite Dickens novel.

Loved. Couldn't set aside. Hung on every word. Hit replay often just because I could.

Great narrator for the great Mr Dickens

Of course the story of Oliver Twist, well known as it is to many, is a wonderfully engaging story. I read the book years ago and loved it, but I also loved hearing it in the voices created by this wonderful narrator. She was able to bring the characters to life audibly in a way that I really enjoyed. I especially love her Fagan, Bill Sikes, and the Beadle Bumble.

Love this story!

I find Dickens' language and story telling suberb. Occasionally I might prefer it not to be quite so perfect and tidy, but it's a joy to read and who can blame him for preferring happy endings!
