The skilfully abridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Little Dorrit, Charles Dickens' masterful depiction of prison-life.

When Arthur Clennam returns to England after many years abroad, he takes a kindly interest in Amy Dorrit, his mother's seamstress, and in the affairs of Amy's father, William Dorrit, a man of shabby grandeur, long imprisoned for debt in the Marshalsea.

As Arthur soon discovers, the dark shadow of the prison stretches far beyond its walls to affect the lives of many, from the kindly Mr Panks, the reluctant rent-collector of Bleeding Heart Yard, and the tipsily garrulous Flora Finching, to Merdle, an unscrupulous financier, and the bureaucratic Barnacles in the Circumlocution Office. A masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment, Little Dorrit is one of the supreme works of Dickens' maturity.

    " My Kindle has full Dickens set, so I'm just flipping through those read earlier and ones I haven't gotten to before. Starting off with several that have had BBC or other great mini-series done. "

    " Finally, I made it to the end of a Dickens novel. Hooray! The deep dark secret was a tiny bit disappointing when it was revealed, but the characters were top notch. "

    " This is the second time I tried to read this book. Love DIckens, but it just did not hold my interest. Went back and started from the beginning because my mind just kept wandering but had to give up. Might try again later. "
