We purchased this for my daughter's 15th birthday gift. Our whole family has been so completely captivated by this audio version, although we already knew the story well through books and videos. This audio performance captures the spirit of each of the characters very convincingly. A few parts are too intense for my 7 and 5-year old boys, so we skip those. (Quite frankly, they are almost too intense for any of us.) An amazing recording.
As usual, Focus on the Family has done a great job. Even if you've read this book, the audio book is gripping. It's a wonderful story and well done. Thank you Focus on the Family. Our family loves this audio book!
An excellent production of one of Dicken's best known tales!
Oliver is a poor orphan, who falls on misfortune, but brings light to every situation. Will Oliver ever find a family to call his own?
A full cast brings the world of Oliver Twist to life in a evocative radio drama! Focus on the Family has a way of bringing out the heart of the story in a way that no other production has done thus far.
The full cast does a terrific job of bring the characters to life, along with the realistic sound effects. This is the kind of tale production that can be enjoyed by the whole family, though I will briefly mention that as this was Oliver Twist there were brief drinking references and violence. I would probably recommend this one for ages 8 & Up.
Overall, this was a thrilling experience that kept me up late listening because I wanted to hear the outcome. I will certainly be listening to this drama many times over in the years to come, because it was such a well-done rendering of this well known tale. I would highly recommend this excellent production of Oliver Twist! (It would make a terrific gift!)
I received this product from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
