Product Description From AudioFile Great Expectations like London itself can be re-visited many times without losing its charm. A fine mixture of comedy romance and mystery makes it a splendid choice for audio rendition. This version has been much abridged; the simplified plot closely parallels David Lean's splendid 1946 film. Accomplished British actor Tom Baker's widely varied vocal charac-terizations are brilliant. (The most memorable is that of Magwitch.) He is less successful however with the "straighter" roles. Above all he has not fully captured the appeal of Dickens's narrator the mature Pip and this proves a definite though not fatal flaw. B.R. (c)AudioFile Portland Maine
