It’s almost a cliché: Dickens is verbose because he was paid by the word. But what becomes clear with this audiobook is that all those words do indeed matter. They dazzle with peerless charm, and, when acted by a master like Charlton Griffin, they mesmerize. Griffin takes on the sizable cast with verve, transforming his voice to play innocent Pip, haughty Estella, and ancient Miss Havisham. As he delivers remarkably convincing portrayals, his vocal gifts make this classic come alive. Dickens was paid by the word? If so, fantastic: all the more for Griffin to perform.
