Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicholas Boulton

Classics • 32.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1839

Nicholas Boulton is simply a masterful narrator. His tour-de-force performance of this Dickens classic shows the full complement of his vocal ability: He does all manner of English accents, from Yorkshire farmer to clerk to the upper class; he dexterously captures age, gender, and geographical idiosyncrasies. In a novel teaming with vicious characters (Wackford Squeers and Ralph Nickleby being the top two) who are opposed to the heroic Nicholas and his sister, Kate, Boulton quickly changes tone and tenor to give meaning to every utterance. Dickens's gifts as a storyteller are well served by Boulton. He smoothly renders the author's sometimes monumental descriptions, monologues, and dialogues. In this age of binging, here is an audiobook that can be listened to and enjoyed over time. A.D.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
