An intriguing tale that keeps one interested throughout the story. Mill Nicholson is the #1 narrator amongst all that I have heard in 40 audio books. She is phenomenal.

This narrator is phenomenal. I wish I could search for more books read by her. She uses voices that are recognizable and consistent throughout the book. This is also a very engaging tale by Dickens.

Mille Nicholson is an unbelievable narrator. I am impressed with the number of different, very believable voices but also the fact that she is able to distinctly age those voices as the characters age! Thank you Mille (sp?) for a great read!
