Behind the Mic: On Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens, Read by Nicholas Boulton
A Classic Voiced by a Brilliant Narrator
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Nicholas Boulton is simply a masterful narrator. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile contributor Alan Minskoff discuss Boulton’s tour-de-force performance that shows the full complement of his vocal ability: he does all manner of English accents and dexterously captures all the age, gender, and geographical idiosyncrasies of <em>Nicholas Nickleby</em>. Dickens’s gifts as a storyteller are well served by Boulton. In this age of bingeing, here is an audiobook that can be listened to and enjoyed over time.
