Publisher's Summary

John Harmon, in exile for many years, discovers that by a curious quirk in his father’s will he must marry Bella Wilfer, a girl he has never met, in order to claim his inheritance. Mistakenly thought to have drowned, on his return he gains employment with the kindly Mr Boffin under the assumed name of John Rokesmith and falls in love with the flighty and mercenary Bella, who scornfully rejects him as a mere impoverished secretary. But Boffin and his wife contrive a plan to help John and show Bella the error of her ways.

A delight throughout

What a brilliant reading of the many and complex characters created herein by the inestimable Mr Dickens whose legend lives on, brought vividly to life by the talent of Mr Troughton. Not simply a fascinating historical insight but people and traits we come across everyday are detailed wittily and observantly, sometimes painfully, the whole rolling along in this rich story, I could hardly have enjoyed it more, and will buy more Dickens from Audible to brighten my days.

Another Wonderful Story from Dickens

Where does Our Mutual Friend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

when you've listened to thousands, as I have, I can only say that Dickens and Trollope always appear at the top of my list.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

too long for that, but nothing wrong with enjoying it for as many hours as possible in one go.
