Another wonderful Dickens story with many themes undergirding a delightful plot. A few dialogue exchanges with secondary characters became lengthy late in the story but overall a beautiful novel and well worth the commitment.

Great story without being ridiculously convoluted. Hugh Fraser does a superb job narrating and of character dialogue.
