About the Author

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and is widely known as one of the greatest writers of Victorian England. His works continue to be loved by readers worldwide, including A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, and Great Expectations. He died in 1870 and was laid to rest in the Poet’s Corner of Westminster Abbey, London.

Review

Superbly performed by BBC Radio Drama veteran David Timson, The Pickwick Papers is an unabridged audiobook adaptation of Charles Dickens's debut novel, now justly recognized as a classic. Set in England shortly before the advent of the railroad, The Pickwick Papers follows the upper-class Mr Pickwick and his caustically comedic cockney servant Sam Weller, as they travel the nation in search of adventure and learning. From comic moments such as the Eatanswill election and the trial of Mrs Bardell vs. Pickwick to the stark atrocity that was debtors prison, The Pickwick Papers is a superb rendition of Dickens's grand and thoroughly engaging adventure. The Pickwick Papers is worthy of the highest recommendation for public library audiobook collections, and as a special gift for audiobook lovers who especially enjoy great literary treasures. - --Library Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review

With true artistry, narrator David Timson brings to life the misadventures of the Pickwick Club. In Dickens's first novel, Samuel Pickwick (founder and president of the eponymous club) and three Pickwickians travel outside the comforts of London to document life in the English countryside. What follows is a succession of incidents filled with eccentric characters and social commentary. Clocking in around 32 hours, this audio edition would be an arduous task for any narrator, but Timson embraces this intimidating assignment with admirable aplomb. Whatever the scenario presented in prose, he matches the tone and keeps the story moving at a steady clip. He perfectly captures the author's many characters, providing spot-on vocal characterization for each one. This is an outstanding listen for both fans of Dickens and those new to his work. --Publishers Weekly - June 2012

It is a lot of money, but it's also a lot of wonderfully funny stories, brilliantly read, about four trouble-prone Victorian gents pontificating, spooning, wining, dining, trundling about in stage coaches and meeting characters only Dickens could imagine and bring to vivid life. "'Don't be long,' said the spinster aunt affectionately. 'Long? Away? From you? Cruel charmer,' and Mr Jingles skipped playfully up to the spinster aunt and imprinted a chaste kiss on her lips and danced out of the room. 'Dear man,' said the spinster as the door closed after him. 'Rum old girl,' said Mr Jingles as he walked down the passage." To get a marriage licence and take all her money, of course. --Sue Arnold, The Guardian

Timson's irrepressible performance of this rollicking romp through 1830s England in Dickens's first novel invites listeners along as Pickwick and his crew ramble through the countryside. With broad satire and clever irony, Timson proves a delightful guide through slapdash adventures and a host of eccentric characters. --The Reference and User Services Association, a division of the American Library Association --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
