Publisher Description

Great Expectations is a novel by Charles Dickens, first serialised in
All the Year Round from December 1860 to August 1861. The action of the story takes place from Christmas Eve 1812, when the protagonist is about seven years old, to the winter of 1840.

Great Expectations is written in a semi-autobiographical style, and is the story of the orphan Pip, tracing his life from his early days of childhood until adulthood. The story can also be considered a semi-autobiographical portrait of Dickens, like much of his work, drawing on his experiences of life and people.

Robgibbon ,

Expectations greater than reality

Not a bad reading, but there are a few instances in which there is an odd intonation which is somewhat distracting, often giving little inportance to truly memorable and key quotes. The division into small books is quite useful, although there are around 15 seconds at the start of each chapter which is instrumental music which isn't too great. A must have book, but not necssarily the best reading. I'd listen to a few previews and find a voice you like.

The Mind Doctor ,

Dont buy!!

Please dont buy especially if you plan to listen to it while driving. The reading is extremely lifeless, woody and plain sedating! Please listen to previews before buying.
