    Description

    Exclusively from Audible

    In true Dickensian fashion, The Old Curiosity Shop offers a humorous yet devastating depiction of both the most honourable and most corrupt members of 19th-century English society. 

    Hailed by Queen Victoria as being ‘interesting and cleverly written', The Old Curiosity Shop introduces listeners to the uniquely colourful characters of Nell Trent, her young friend, Kit, her doting grandfather and the evil moneylender to whom they all fall prey, Daniel Quilp. 

    A gentle and caring young orphan, Nell works in her grandfather’s shop alongside her only friend, the honest and hardworking Kit. 

    Upon discovering that their shop and income have been gambled away and are now in the hands of the wicked and grotesquely deformed Daniel Quilp, Nell and her grandfather are forced to flee from their hometown and throw themselves on the mercy of strangers; forever to be hunted by the malevolent ghosts of their past.

    First published in 1841 in serial form, The Old Curiosity Shop experienced worldwide success and was praised by the public and critics alike. In this modern and original adaptation, Jessie Buckley delivers an astute and powerful performance which is guaranteed to intrigue listeners from the start.

    Great narration

    Jessie Buckley’s narration was excellent. This is my 4th Dickens I’ve listened to on audible & I wish she would have narrated all of them. Each voice was unique making it easy to picture each character. Worth listening just to hear Quilp’s evil laugh!! So entertaining.

    Fantastic performance

    Jessie Buckley is an amazing narrator. She told the story so well, with such nuance and charm, that I sometimes forgot that I was listening to someone read a book. At times, I felt like I was actually right there, observing the story as it unfolded.

    Narrator was amazing

    This recording of The Old Curiosity is one of the best Audible books I’ve heard. The narrator was masterful, and the story very engaging. Dickens was a true virtuoso at setting a scene, sketching characters, and building suspense.

    Not my favorite Dickens

    Like all Dickens' novels, Curiosity Shop is entertaining and listenable, but this one is more sentimental and superficial than the rest. There are, as usual, brilliant passages and a few compelling characters, but I'll turn to any of ten or so other books for a re-listen before coming back to this one.

    Meh

    It was okay. Very gloomy sad story. I kept wanting for a happy ending for the main character but not so in my opinion.
