Technically flawed version - Avoid!

Unfortunately this version is almost useless. The recording level is so quiet, that even with the volume turned up full, it is difficult to hear it, if there is background noise (I listen to audiobooks on the treadmill and in the car - in both cases, parts of the book were INaudible). The recording volume is inconsistent throughout, so that one chapter can be of an almost acceptable level and the very next one so quiet, that it is hard to make out. This alone would suffice to damn this recording in my view, though the reading is good enough (without it being spectacular in any way, though).

However, this version adds insult to injury: Most of chapter 52 is missing. After three paragraphs, the recording suddenly mutes and only resumes again at the beginning of the next chapter. Were this an amateur recording, that might be excusable, but not for an audiobook sold on this platform.

Avoid this one and get Martin Jarvis, who is an excellent reader and does, I am sure, a great job of Great Expectations.

Amazing and engrossing.

Quite simply dear audio 'readers' this is one simply engrossing version of the much loved tale from Dickens himself. There is very little to say other than out of all I have listened to, this one was by far the best. I do hop you will give this version a chance. You will be extremely pleased you did! Yours truly - Indie.
