Sintesi dell'editore

John Harmon, in exile for many years, discovers that by a curious quirk in his father’s will he must marry Bella Wilfer, a girl he has never met, in order to claim his inheritance. Mistakenly thought to have drowned, on his return he gains employment with the kindly Mr Boffin under the assumed name of John Rokesmith and falls in love with the flighty and mercenary Bella, who scornfully rejects him as a mere impoverished secretary. But Boffin and his wife contrive a plan to help John and show Bella the error of her ways.

What a wonderful story.

I am a big Dickens fan. And this incredibly well narrated version of Our Mutual Friend does not disappoint.

Audio quality is terrible

Somebody recording this used the wrong microphone. It’s results in hearing the narrator take a breath every couple of seconds. For such a wonderful novel the results are bad in the extreme. I was looking forward to an excellent reading of this novel, and instead I got to hear the narrator breathe over and over and over again. It was incredibly irritating! I feel like Amazon was really trying to slip some thing in that was bargain basement for a very expensive price. I don’t think this is the narrators fault, but instead it is the sound engineer’s fault for not giving this guy a better microphone. In case they don’t know, there are microphones that do fuzz out breathing. I hated this, I had to stop listening to it, And I think dickens turned over in his grave.

Fresh and vibrant reading of this classic

This is my favorite Dickens story, and this was an amazing performance of it! The narrator gives fully life to the many, many characters in this book. And through his subtle expressiveness, renders the meaning of even very archaic bits of dialogue comprehensible to the modern listener.

A delight throughout

What a brilliant reading of the many and complex characters created herein by the inestimable Mr Dickens whose legend lives on, brought vividly to life by the talent of Mr Troughton. Not simply a fascinating historical insight but people and traits we come across everyday are detailed wittily and observantly, sometimes painfully, the whole rolling along in this rich story, I could hardly have enjoyed it more, and will buy more Dickens from Audible to brighten my days.

Dickens . . . . enough said

I always enjoy Dickens such a refreshing change to modern literature. Wonderful characters, such gentle supple humour, great stories, tragedy and romance. It's all there, love it.
This long tome is no exception , well read, it holds the interest throughout.

Another Wonderful Story from Dickens

Where does Our Mutual Friend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

when you've listened to thousands, as I have, I can only say that Dickens and Trollope always appear at the top of my list.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

too long for that, but nothing wrong with enjoying it for as many hours as possible in one go.

Fantastic

This book made me realise how amazing Charles Dickens was, the amount of detail, and several stories in one book. They all end up threaded together. Even though it was a long read/listen it kept my interest. As for the narrator, he is exceptional, every character brought to life with his different voices.

David Troughton’s narration is unparalleled!

David Troughton’s narration should be made a universal target for all Audible narrators to aim at! What a tour de force. Brilliant characterisation, flawless diction, deep understanding of the text.

Well written and brilliantly read

The last novel Dickens ever completed and he’s absolutely on top of his game. Quite apart from the plot, sub-plots, and a huge cast of characters, he sticks it to politicians, the Poor Law boards, anti-semites and ‘Society.’ Yes, our Charlie was ‘woke.’

The cast is adroitly managed by the reader, David Troughton, who gives a pitch perfect performance, sustained over 35 hours of listening. Superb!

Good, but not, for me, great

Firstly, I have to say that this is definitely one of my favourite Dickens. For most of the book at least, both the leading young women, Lizzie Hexham and Bella Wilfer, are strong characters. Unfortunately towards the end, Bella slips into a more traditional Dickens role, as per Dora and Little Nell. More normally for Dickens, he finds his most upright male characters in a wide variety of interesting places and, more specifically, offers a welcome contrast to the anti-semitism that readers have associated with his drawing of Fagin in Oliver Twist.



The reading is very professional, faltering only, in my personal view, when Dickens uses irony to convey his discust for the character he is drawing - the reading of his introductions to Lammle and Wegg being examples.



I have enjoyed this, but I could have been thrilled.
