    "I have long been a fan of reading great novels of all time. One of favorite authors is Charles Dickens. From reading his many novels, I believe his best book is Great Expectations. "

    "I absolutely love this book, but I really don't have time to read anymore chasing around two young kids. I bought the audiobook so I could listen to it and it is just wonderful. I feel like I can enjoy the story more listening to someone retell it for me. The way the person speaks is just entrancing and really helps me get absorbed in the book again."

    "Great Expectations remains a classic. It is still required reading in most high schools. Published in multiple languages and read by people in many countries. It remains one of the best classic romance and best known of all time. "

    "Great Expectations is one of the best worth-reading thick books. My son read it over and over and couldn't get tired of it. It's one of those books that live in one's mind even when they grow old."

    "This is a very good version for the reader that wants a lot of bells and whistles to go along with the original story. It has chapters that break down info on the characters and gobs of footnotes. As this is one of the most repeated Christmas stories in TV shows, movies, cartoons, and plays I only read the original story and my review is only on the story. How do you give a four star rating to such a beloved classic? It really isn't hard to read, but sometimes (really quite often) the descriptions and language get so flowery that you lose track of the story and have to go back and reread sections. You can't be in a room with a conversation going, the TV on, or music going because it requires undivided attention and I can't block out everything around me. Perhaps it took me a little longer than normal to read, but it was an enjoyable story that I love to hear over and over, and now have read."

    "I've recently begun re-introducing myself to the classics that I initially read as compulsory assignments in high school and college. As an adult, I'm now reading them because I choose to read them. This time around, I've been getting much more out of these stories because I have the life experience with which to better understand the subtleties and metaphors of the writing. This was precisely the case with A Tale of Two Cities. As I started listening, I was quickly reminded of why this Dickens tale is such a timeless classic. Keith Higinbotham delights with a virtually flawless narrative performance and lovely voice distinctions for the cast of Dickens' characters. I listened for several hours at a time thanks to Higinbotham's smooth and professionally delivered tone. I would enjoy hearing more from him in the future."

    "No. Nope. Not a chance. Never again. This book was terrible. One of the worst "classics" I've ever read, and serves now only as a bench mark of how bad other things are. Is it bad, or is it Great Expectations bad? I read this book in junior high and thought it was terrible, but decided to give it a second chance in my adult life. I found out that no knowing 13 year old me was actually right about something, this book is still terrible as an adult."
