“Why do we never tire of Dickens? Isn’t it because of his characters and their crazy worlds? Science fiction was never so strange! Reader Robert Whitfield catches this zaniness and infects us with it…Whitfield, with a unique voice and vision for each character, casts Dickens’ spell of mystery and intrigue. Dickens fans should not miss this almost perfect performance of his most mature work.” (AudioFile)
