The Pickwick Papers (Version 2)

Gelesen von Debra Lynn

(4,423 Sterne; 26 Bewertungen)

A sportsman who doesn't hunt; a poet who doesn't write; a lover with no one to love; all three are devoted to their cheerful and benevolent leader, Mr. Pickwick. Join him and his friends, Winkle, Snodgrass, and Tupman, as they tour the country in search of adventures, knowledge, and stories. Along the way, they have their share of mishaps, and meet plenty of interesting characters, both the good and the not so good. (Mr. Pickwick's dedicated manservant, Sam Weller, is a scene-stealer sure to delight just about everybody.)

You may shed a few tears along the way, but usually of the pleasant sort. This is a mostly lighthearted and humorous tale, with a number of subplots woven in, in Dickens’ incomparable style.

Lighthearted listen

(4 Sterne)

I really enjoyed this tale - the portrayals of lawyers, doctors and politicians were quite funny. I love how he introduces us to a character based on one observation - the fur topped boots of the woman we later come to know as Arabella. You're not quite sure where he is going to take this character at first, but then he slowly unfolds the person before you and you think - how apt that first description was. I enjoy listening to DebraLynn's readings - she did another excellent job on this book. Kudos to anyone who is dedicated enough to read through almost 30 hours of Dickens!

Wonderful read

(5 Sterne)

This is the most upbeat Dickens' novel I've read yet. At first the reader's accent distracted me, but I reconciled to it and found it pleasant later on. I recommend this book to those who have a taste for dry humor and wit.

Explore England with Mr P c.1827

Great reading thank-you Debra Lynn. I struggled at first to get into this novel but very glad I persevered. Truly delightful story as well as an intriguing view of English society at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution.

So good I listened to it twice. Thank you Debora Lynn.
