Great Expectations!

Great Expectations By Charles Dickens is perhaps the most wonderful story I have ever read. The audio book by RecordedBooks is about 16 hrs long and I have a feeling that people would enjoy it more than the text. The narrator Frank Muller has done a fantastic job of bringing out the roller-coaster ride of emotions that this book is. I don't consider myself to be even worthy of reviewing it. You have to listen to/read it yourself to decide if you liked it.

Dickens (1812-1870) is said to be a literary geniuses of the victorian era whose creativity, arguably, is only rivaled by that of Shakespeare. Before I read this work I did not even know that the words can be weaved together in such a delightful fashion. It's like watching Tiger Woods play golf or Sachin Tendulkar play cricket. As close to perfection as they come!

If you're going to read only one book in your life, I would highly recommend you to read this one!

Personally, I can't wait to finish my current book (1776 by David McCollough) and listen to or read some more of Dickens' work.
