About the Author

As a child, Charles Dickens (1812–70) came to know not only hunger and privation, but also the horror of the infamous debtors’ prison and the evils of child labor. A surprise legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and “slave” factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years’ formal schooling. He taught himself shorthand and worked as a parliamentary reporter until his writing career took off with the publication of Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837). As a novelist and magazine editor, Dickens had a long run of serialized success through Our Mutual Friend (1864–65). In later years, ill health slowed him down, but he continued his popular dramatic readings from his fiction to an adoring public, which included Queen Victoria. At his death, The Mystery of Edwin Drood remained unfinished.
Stanley Weintraub is the author or editor of more than fifty books of biography, culture history, and military history, including The London Yankees, Whistler, Victoria, and Uncrowned King: The Life of Prince Albert. He retired from Pennsylvania State University as Evan Hugh Professor Emeritus and director of Institute for the Arts and Humanistic Studies.
Annabel Davis-Goff is the author of The Dower House, This Cold Country, and The Fox’s Walk. All three novels were selected by the New York Times as Notable Books. She is also the author of Walled Gardens, a family memoir, and is editor of The Literary Companion to Gambling. She now teaches literature at Bennington College.

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 near Portsmouth where his father was a clerk in the navy pay office. The family moved to London in 1823, but their fortunes were severely impaired. Dickens was sent to work in a blacking-warehouse when his father was imprisoned for debt. Both experiences deeply affected the future novelist. In 1833 he began contributing stories to newspapers and magazines, and in 1836 started the serial publication of Pickwick Papers. Thereafter, Dickens published his major novels over the course of the next twenty years, from Nicholas Nickleby to Little Dorrit. He also edited the journals Household Words and All the Year Round. Dickens died in June 1870.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great story, terrible edition
By Llewellyn on November 16, 2018
The tiny type in this edition is set in three columns, like a newspaper shrunken down to miniature. All but unreadable, no idea who would want this. I think that the publisher is counting on the low price to dissuade people from sending it back, but I am just annoyed enough to bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Page, an amazing narrator
By Klapaucjusz on April 19, 2021
I am not attempting to review a Dickens’ writing here-it was analyzed and praised by thousands of scholars.
Instead I want to praise the narrator, Michael Page.
He is a true narration genius, talking in multiple distinctly different voices and creating, sometimes sinister and sometimes grotesque, atmosphere all by himself.

So even if you know the book, this audio version is definitely worth listening to.
The book itself is also great, it passed the test of time in flying colors and can easily amuse contemporary readers with it’s half-absurd situations and a parade of weird characters. But even more amusing is its audio version.
Since there are multiple versions of this book and of it’s audios I am attaching image of edition that I got. It came included with free Prime book. But when I checked recently the different audio version was included with the same book. So I am pasting below a link to the audio version I am talking about (put this link directly as an address into your browser rather than searching Amazon page).

It is a part of Amazon Classic Editions, which I love. There are so many old friends there and so many surprises. Like surprise of me discovering that despite being familiar with the title I never read the “Great Expectations”.
