A Charles Dickens Christmas Story – Read Professionally

Actor and London Walks guide Richard Burnip (we call him Richard IV) is a professional “reader.” A mainstay of the Audible audiobooks team, Richard’s read getting on for 100 books for them. Richard gifts us, every Christmas, with a Dickens or Sherlock Holmes read. This one is Dickens’ story, The Poor Relation. In his Introduction Richard reminds us that “Dickens’ stories were designed to be read aloud.” And that, indeed, this one, is “one of the most heartbreaking things that Dickens ever wrote.”

Anyway, get yourself a cuppa, settle into your favourite chair (maybe put your feet up), sit back and enjoy. I’m sure you’ll agree, the difference a professional reader makes!
