The Pickwick Papers audiobook

The Pickwick Papers audiobook
by Charles Dickens (1812-1870)

A sportsman who doesn’t hunt; a poet who doesn’t write; a lover with no one to love; all three are devoted to their cheerful and benevolent leader, Mr. Pickwick. Join him and his friends, Winkle, Snodgrass, and Tupman, as they tour the country in search of adventures, knowledge, and stories. Along the way, they have their share of mishaps, and meet plenty of interesting characters, both the good and the not so good. (Mr. Pickwick’s dedicated manservant, Sam Weller, is a scene-stealer sure to delight just about everybody.)

You may shed a few tears along the way, but usually of the pleasant sort. This is a mostly lighthearted and humorous tale, with a number of subplots woven in, in Dickens’ incomparable style.
