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”.
