Sleepy Pickwick

I have previously enjoyed the readings on the radio by Gabriel Woolf, especially those of Jerome K Jerome. Here, however, such a slow pace is adopted, such limited expression, that I did not wish to hear the well-loved story to its end. There may be many who will prefer this slow and deliberate pace. I want a reading with much more vigour and bounce, and with far greater differentiation of voices.
