(4,4 Sterne; 38 Bewertungen)

The action takes place in London, with excursions to Devon, Yorkshire, and Portsmouth, as we follow the adventures of the eponymous hero. Nicholas is forced to unwelcome employment to help secure support for his widowed mother and his sister from their mercenary relative Ralph, on whose mercy they have been thrown. After many adventures Nicholas finally triumphs over his Uncle, although his success is also tinged with sadness. (Summary by Chris Garbett)

most readers were fabulous but one reader towards the end... oh dear... you ruined several chapters stumbling over the English language and could not even pronounce the protagonist's name correctly. Everyone else was brilliant, keep it up.

(3 Sterne)

A classic story one should know of for the most part well read.

(5 Sterne)

czechchris was awesome. some others hard to listen to. great story

another Dickens classic

(4 Sterne)

Just as the title states, this is about the life of Nickolas and those that come into his life. Great characters and compassion is felt for them all knowing the times they live in

Pretty engaging overall

(4 Sterne)

There was one superb reader who read the first 20 or so chapters. Really excellent work CzechChris, if you ever find this. Most of the other readers did a decent job with the exception of one reader who read 5 chapters in a thick accent, without one iota of understanding or inflection. It was a big problem for me, I wound up reading the text on my phone which is hard since I am half blind. Volunteers who sign up just as an opportunity to practice a foreign language should be discouraged or at the very least replaced.

Book 4 Narration 2

(3 Sterne)

Had to switch to Mil Nickelson's version. The attempts at giving the characters their own voices was tragic and pronouncing Dothebys Hall DO THE BOYS Hall was unconsionable!

mostly good

(3 Sterne)

There are some excellent readers in this work, who make it a delight to listen to. However, i was unable to understand the reader of chapters 50 and further, and actually had to change to another version of the work in order to understand these later chapter.
