Duration: 20 hours 33 minutes

Summary:

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

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

    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?

    Excellent narration! Loved it.

    The American narration spoiled it, just not right for an English story!

  • Jo Nugent

    Brilliant novel and great narration... Highly recommend

    With so much praise, the narrator clearly pleased many listeners. I unfortunately found him limited; three or four of his characters had the same accent, and Pip at 25 sounded like Pip at seven. Still, he was clear and animated, and I may have judged him too harshly.

    Another excellent story by: Charles Dickens. Great novel!

  • Gene Robinson

    Didn't enjoy as much as other Dickens books. Narrator needs to be Britsh. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to Mark Smith reading a novel set in America.

  • This Is Me Now!

    Love the book. The narrator was good, but I have to say some of his choices of voices were a little on the strange side. A little off putting sometimes.
