Originally serialized between 1843-1844, Dickens' story tells of Martin, the grandson of old Martin Chuzzlewit, who is rich but has become bittter due to the greed of his kin. Young Martin is initially selfish but through hard labour and the positive and cheerful influence of his servant, Tapley, becomes decent.The novel is broken up into segments by young Martin's voyage to seek his fortune in America. This allowed the author to satirically portray the US. Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced. Please note: This is a vintage recording.

Not the best narration
I had to stop listening to this because the narration was getting in the way of the story. The narrator regularly stumbles over words and corrects himself, the voice characterization isn't consistent from chapter to chapter, and you can hear the narrator turning the page of the script. Not the best.
Pretty tough to get through
