So it appears I’ve graduated from reading on the way to work to LISTENING on the way to work. I’ve certainly got enough books to read, but Audible had a special, so I grabbed a few books 🙂 This one was on super special and practically free. So I figured, why not?

This was actually my first Dickens reading or listening experience (aside from stories that got turned into movies), so it was a newer writing style for me. That being said, it was easy enough to listen to, if not sometimes falling into the realm of listening to a rambling retiree… that’s what I get for choosing the one narrated by a man who sounded like he literally had great grandkids.

Regardless of having a very long storytime with my grandfather, the story had a typical Dickens-style happy ending and was easy to listen to on my way to and from work each day. It was a sweet story, overall, but I might put Dickens on hold for later stories (for now), as they are not exactly my style and there are MANY other stories that I have to read, yesterday.
