"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." So begins this classic, one of the most beloved novels of all time.

Among the most talented and influential voices to grace the audiobook format, Shakespearean actor Frank Muller delivers an electric performance of a story that demands it. Urgency and tumult seem to bellow forth from the indefatigable Muller as he untangles the web of conflict that drives Dickens' historical epic. The French aristocracy’s self-satisfied arrogance is set in contrast with the outraged militance of the downtrodden peasantry. Muller gives a unique voice to each member of the warring classes while nevertheless betraying the selfish motives that bind them all. Dickens' competing lovers, the aristocratic Charles Darnay and his jealous doppelgänger, Sydney Carton, are by turn endowed with desperate passion and tender selflessness as they grapple with historical forces beyond their control.

Audio Quality Muffled, Rendering Telling Hopeless
Great Story, but sadly Audio from 1986 is muffled beyond any hope of Enjoyment.The 1987 Great Expectations is fine, & that is what you sample in the bundle. Audible must clean this Recording as it sounds like a bootleg tape.
Worst recorded Sound Ever experienced from Audible.
One can barely hear him
