One of Dickens' best. The vast interweaving of characters, each of whom seems to be both a stock type, but also as real as you or I, is a pleasure to watch unfold.

Also satisfying is that under Dickens' divine machinations, everybody gets their just deserts. So it's kind of like a Jackie Chan movie, but with deeper characters and less kicking.

Mil Nicholson's reading is excellent - I recommend her readings for any audiobook you can get your hands on - and they're free!
