(It may take a moment to appear):
This is the thirteenth novel by Charles Dickens but is in fact, the second one that is told in first person. It tells the story of an orphaned named Pip and his growth and maturity as a character. The protagonist will experience various aspects of human nature and will come into conflict with his past and what he wants to be in the future. The story is a perfect blend of various elements of human individualism and society and clearly shows the worst and best part of each. Pip is a strong and well balanced character and this has made him a solid archetype for protagonists in countless other literatures. The pacing of the story is simply perfect as it jumps from one chapter to the next smoothly and naturally. Overall, Great Expectations is a classic that is a must read, and now, must listen as an audiobook and piece of literary history that is both uplifting and eye opening to the trials of society.
Great Expectations is a novel published in 1861 with three separate volumes. The reader in this free audiobook gave a magnificent performance as narrator and as the various characters in the book. One of the best aspects of an audiobook recording of your favorite novel would be if the reader/s voice acted out each characters and that is present in this free edition of the literary classic. The narrator gave a clear performance and props to him as he chose to perform the narration in straight English while performing the different character’s dialogues in various accents and tones. True to the title of the book, I had great expectations to the quality of performance by the reader as this is one of the greatest literary classics from of the most well-known author in history. I am glad to say that this free audiobook edition is a worthy adaptation of Great Expectations.
