Dickens does Dickens
Definitely, I don't know why having a relative read the story should make it feel more intimate but it does. Obviously a professional at reading his great grandfathers books he brings a cultured, refined approach to a great Dickens novel
The beating of Squeers is wonderful. As usual in Dickens bad characters get some kind of come uppance and he gets it in such a wonderful way.
The feeling that he truly believes in all the characters, that he treats them like friends
It's Dickens so you run the entire range of emotions
Dickens on Dickens brings a classic story a new edge. Well worth the time invested in listening.
Narration is the real joy here
