Les Miserables is one of my favorite books, but it's a little lengthy. This fantastic audio drama tells the story very well, and takes much less time than reading the book! I love the quality of all the Radio Theatre productions. You will not be disappointed!
I really enjoyed this "radio theatre" drama. I have listened to many others and enjoyed this so much I ordered a few and gave them as gifts. It has wonderful character building qualities and just encourages us to do "the right thing" even when it is hard. It is great for all ages, young and old. I would definitely order other Focus on the Family dramas.
Made the mistake of loaning this out. (1 to many times). Never got it back. But I know where to get a new one. Thank you Chirstianbooks for having Radio Theatre (and Focus on the Family) for all the wonderful stories they have done, I could listen over and over again. (and I do) I am hooked. Makes my commuting a true joy, no hurry to get home. Sometimes I will find myself setting in the carport, hating to turn the story off. What a great investment.
I love Les Miserables. I love the story, I love the musical (I just had the opportunity to be in it,) and I love just about anything having to do with it. As you can imagine, I was so excited when this audio book came up for review since I also happen to LOVE Focus on the Family and their audio books. All excited, I inserted the first CD into my player.
And I was not disappointed.
Wonderful narration, brilliant acting... this audio book did great justice to Victor Hugo's story. Being an audio book, they couldn't fit the entire story in, and that may throw some people off. But if you let yourself appreciate the work for what it is: a wonderful, enjoyable adaptation, there shouldn't be a problem.
I highly recommend this, and any other Focus on the Family audio books. It really does bring the story to life in a fantastic way. I hope that you'll buy this audio book for yourself to see how nice it is. Thank you Tyndale for giving me the opportunity to review it!
