It may not be one of Charles Dickens?s best known books but I would thoroughly recommend it, especially if you like thumping great Victorian novels! However it wouldn?t be half as good without the narration by Anton Lesser. Every character is given their own voice, making them instantly recognizable and the plot that much easier to follow. And some of them are very funny and so cleverly done. Altogether this book is a joy.
