(5 Sterne)

Another score for the reader Hamlet. Again I find myself lost in the words of Dickens. Each character has its own voice, matching his or her description very well. Clearly and seamlessly read!

Portrait of a Dysfunctional Family

(4 Sterne)

Dombey Senior, cold, dignified, and distant to everyone, pins all his hopes on his son and ignores his daughter. When he cannot ignore her, he's emotionally abusive. She yearns for his love, believing there's something wrong in herself that causes her father to not love her. Nicely read by Brad Filippone. If Mil Nicholson's version is too slowly read for you, Brad's your narrator. He keeps things moving without going too fast. The proof-listener missed several repeats throughout the story, which is a shame. If a future listener would note the chapters and times of the repeats, I'm sure the reader would be grateful for the help.

(5 Sterne)

Hamlet does an excellent job on this book; he is very articulate and reads expressively. As for Dombey and Son, I would certainly recommend reading this story of how a father and daughter were far apart in spirit but over time were graciously reunited.

Well done!

(5 Sterne)

This guy does a fantastic job, even to the point of doing different voices for the various characters! The only complaint I have is his frequent mispronunciation of “ingenuous” as “ingenious.” (Their meanings are opposite.) otherwise he’s great!

(5 Sterne)

I looked forward to listening to this book many evenings. If I could give it ten stars I would. Thanks to Hamlet for reading this book. Your portrayal of characters like Captain Cuttle, Major B and Susan was wonderful!

Terrible father

(5 Sterne)

rereading Dickens makes me wonder about how his mind works... evil is evil but good can and often does prevail! He has no way to atonement...but the reader has a great voice!!

(5 Sterne)

I love dickens and had never heard of this book. now it's my second favorite of his work.

Great emotion!

(5 Sterne)

Great reader with a clear voice for each character. Lovely book by Mr. Dickenson.
