Great Expectations is often considered Dickens’ greatest novel, and there can be no better way to revisit it—or experience it for the first time—than through the narration of Martin Jarvis…He is a one-man full-cast recording, handling men, women, Londoners, country people, and all classes of humanity with remarkable versatility.” AudioFile
