Summary:

    Epic novel. Fantastic narration. I'm in awe of Dickens' mastery in story telling.

    Great Expectations exceeded my expectations! I enjoyed both the novel and the narration.

    Brilliant tale. At first I was somewhat wary of a Southern American reading it for fear of a Dick Van Dyke “cockney” accent but I was wrong. It was read with a true command of the text and I found it really engaging throughout

    Usually I check the sound quality of the narration before I use a credit, but this time I did not have time before travelling. I would have preferred a British narrator. I liked Mark Smith's rendering for Jo; not so much for Pip. "This is a LibriVox recording. All Librivox recordings are in the public domain.... " At the beginning of every chapter the narrator must specify LibriVox? If all LibriVox recordings are in the public domain, why did I have to use one of my paid credits? LibriVox. Prior to every chapter. Why?

    At age 58, I'm finally getting into the great books! For those my age, I think you'll embrace this story (and stories like it) while simultaneously comparing it to your own life. Bottom line ... an enriching experience! Narration well done.
