Audio Book Summary

Great Expectations is written in the first person and is virtually a fictional autobiography of “Pip” from his childhood, through often painful experiences, to adulthood. It charts his progress as he moves from the Kent marshes - his social status radically changed having gained an unknown benefactor - to busy commercial London.

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

    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?

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

    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.

    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.
