Beschreibung von Audible

Anton Lesser is well known to those who love Dickens on audio. He's a consummate professional who brings the nuanced phrases and finely honed humor of Dickens to life. One of the author's darker tales, shot through with villains and fools led astray by the perceived power of money, this title requires an expert narration to deliver this story successfully. Lesser provides just that, switching deftly from the sweet and gentle Nell to her beloved grandfather and his tortured decline into a senile, conniving old man. Lesser's vocal strength is mesmerizing. He even manages to make Quilp, the grotesque dwarf obsessed with Nell's downfall, seem a little sympathetic as he depicts the character's tormented existence.


The Old Curiosity Shop follows the story of Little Nell who lives with her grandfather in his magical shop of curiosities in London. Her grandfather's attempts to secure an inheritance for Nell lead them into financial trouble with the evil dwarf Quilp. Nell manages to flee and lead her grandfather to safety, but with considerable cost to her health.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
