Excellent Range of Voices

This is the first review which I have submitted to Audible, but I felt that I had to comment on the excellence of the narration. Each character's voice is distinctive and appropriate and the narrative sections are paced beautifully. Dickens wrote rather better books than "Dombey and Son" and the last few chapters are weak, but for David Timson's reading of it fully merits the four stars.

A more subtle Dickens

Whilst not lacking the usual Dickens characters, always good for a laugh, the greatest satisfaction I got from this novel was from the rich and thoughtful narration. Many of his novels are somewhat predictable, but I found that Dickens pursues a very open plotline. There are some detours which are perhaps over long, but the net result is an excellent yarn
