The crest of the nightmarish mountains is breeched, revealing a terrible secret. For there is another narrative about the origins of mankind that no ear has ever heard. H.P. Lovecraft, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. Nicholas Nickleby is a tour de force in Victorian storytelling. Like many of Dickens’ stories, it starts off a bit sad, but once the ball gets rolling, it doesn’t stop. I love reading Dickens for many reasons, but part of my affinity for him is the actual scope of each book – the length. There are so many charming characters, and you get to live in their world for such a long time. By the time it is finished, you feel like you are saying goodbye to dear friends. Nicholas Nickleby Volume 1 of 2 is now available at www.thebestaudiobooks.com. Spotify has recently reached out to us, and will be streaming The Classic Tales Podcast through their service.
