This is a complete and unabridged reading of Charles Dickens' classic novel read by Martin Jarvis. From his first terrifying encounter with Magwitch, an escaped convict, Pip's life is engaged with misconceptions about guilt, money and class, owing to Miss Haversham and Estella. Meanwhile his associations with Pumblechook, Wemmick and Mr Jaggers entertain us, and Herbert and the faithful Jo engage our sympathy.
An absorbing mystery as well as a morality tale, the story of Pip, a poor village lad, and his expectations of wealth is Dickens at his most deliciously readable. The cast of characters includes kindly Joe Gargery, the loyal convict Abel Magwitch and the haunting Miss Havisham. If you have heartstrings, count on them being tugged.
