Great Expectations

Gelesen von Mark F. Smith

(4,737 Sterne; 1046 Bewertungen)

This classic tale tells of an orphan, Pip, who through a series of strange circumstances first finds a trade as a blacksmith's apprentice and then learns that he has "great expectations" of a future inheritance from an anonymous benefactor. He soon learns to live the profligate life of a gentleman as he gradually sheds his associations with the gentle souls of his past, Joe (the blacksmith) and Biddy (a level-headed young lady). He throws his money at improving the prospects of his roommate and friend Herbert and his heart at an "ice princess" whose heart will never respond. But then an escaped convict from his distant past comes calling, and all Pip's hopes dissolve. (Summary by Mark F. Smith) (20 hr 26 min)

Excellent!

(5 Sterne)

This is my second time listening to this audio recording and I think Mark Smith does an excellent job. He enunciates all his words and is very clear and easy to understand. He also does a great job bringing the characters to life by giving them each their very own distinct voice. Very well done!

Superb

(4,5 Sterne)

This is a great book, it has a good amount of humor, mixed with an interesting plot, and melancholy approaches to issues of the times. The recording itself is very well done, but not perfect. His voices are great (although Joe sounds a bit too similar to Goofy for me), but there are echoes in some of the tracks, and a mechanical scratching which can be a bit of a headache. Besides these flaws, it was a wonderful listen.

All around joyful book and listening experience

(5 Sterne)

I find it hard to believe I never read this book as a child and this was my first time doing so. This book captivated me and the narrator read it so well. I will recommend this book to anyone needing a good read. Also, mark Smith was such a charismatic and clear reader that im in search of my next book as we speak.... read by him off course :)

Very well read

(5 Sterne)

I am in the situation that many high schoolers have been put through, as I have to read this for homework, but unfortunately I cant sit and read the book by myself. This audiobook has helped greatly so far, with great clarity and enunciation, gripping changes of tone and accent, and a warm, welcome narrative. I have greatly enjoyed listening to this book so far, and I reckon I will have listened to the full book by Monday (It is Thursday right now) Yet again, thank you for this recording.

Great Expectations

(5 Sterne)

This reading is a great modern adaptation of this classic book. Mr. Mark Smith captures the essence of Pip, the innocent youth who matures throughout the book and becomes a much better person despite the obstacles in his path. He gains insight, kindness, a sense of justice, and a social conscience! All the while retaining his American English accent, which will attract American youth! Great job, Mr. Smith!

Great audiobook

(5 Sterne)

I wanted to read a "classic" in English so I chose this one. Even though I found the novel quite long sometimes, I am 2/3 through it now I really appreciate it so far. The reader is amazing he gives life to the different characters of the novel, best reading I've listened to !

Awesome

(5 Sterne)

Wow!! This book is my new favorite book. Great Job to the Narrator of this book!!!! He did a great job! All I can say to this book is WOW!!! I wish more people would read classics like these because they are amazing! I was a little scared of this book becaus3 I just have gotten into classics and it is my first Dickens but this book was amazing. I would also highly recommend listening to it. This is a great book I will always come back to!!!

A Timeless Classic Brilliantly Read

(5 Sterne)

This is one of those literary classics we all should have read in high school - but didn’t. Enough said. This version is noteworthy by how well it is read. The text is clear and accurate but when the characters speak Smith gives unique voices to each. He’s really good. Its like being at a live performance. Highly recommend...
