Publisher's Summary

The case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce has ground its way through the courts for generations. At its heart are Ada Clare and Richard Carstone, who find love - and terrible loss - through their involvement in the endless battle. Meanwhile, her friend Esther Summeson, who believes she is an orphan, gradually discovers the truth of her identity. The court case throws out a web ensnaring all who come near it, including Lady Dedlock, the menacing lawyer Tulkingham, detective Bucket and tragic little waif Jo. Secrets emerge, crimes are committed and love affairs bloom. But will anyone ever benefit from the case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce?

Bleak House far from bleak

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is beautifully read and I would love to hear more books by this narrator. The story is long and very convoluted, but Dickens has such a wry sense of humour and the subject matter is still so pertinent that it is well worth investing the time.

Really worth it!

A fantastic book to listen to. The narrator is amazing and his range of voices made the listen even more enjoyable.

There is both sadness and joy in this book and story lines that keep you gripped. Although it is very long it really is worth it!
