Add To Wish List + £29.99 - Item is discontinued.

The long, drawn-out case of Jarndyce versus Jarndyce provides the background to this novel which takes us into Dickens' world of impoverished people on the street, lovers fallen on hard times and the grand riches of the upper classes. It is read movingly by Sean Barrett as the main narrator and Teresa Gallagher as the young Esther Summerson.
