Out of the dust-heaps and dirty streets of mid-Victorian London, Dickens creates a classic murder-mystery tale. A dead man is fished out of the Thames by a scavenger and his daughter. Who is he, and how did he get there?

The man's death affects members of all levels of a society permeated with greed. Dickens presents an array of characters both touching and humorous, from Mr. Boffin, the Golden Dustman, to Jenny Wren, the lame doll-dressmaker. It is a story enriched by disguise and intrigue, while the River Thames, symbolising both polluted and renewed life, weaves through it all - in this, the last novel Dickens completed.

    " i wanted to learn more about the life of waste in victorian london. (seriously. and i did.) this is a deeply cynical novel, in which the glittering forms of wealth are generated from refuse--dredged from the slime of the Thames, sold in scraps, dug out of decaying dust heaps. shame about the cheeseball ending! "

    " Probably my favorite Dickens of all time. I've re-read many times. Amazing characters, delicious descriptions. I wish I could record the whole thing for my friends who still don't "get" Dickens. "

    " Audio - I knew I was taking a risk when I got this one. Dickens can be tough. Try listening to this casually and it can make you feel like a dunce. At over 30 hours it would have been a marathon. I just didn't have the stamina to keep at it when I listen for only 10-30 minutes at a time while driving. Besides, I didn't want to get lulled to sleep and wrap my car around a telephone post. "
