Reviews for Oliver Twist : Includes Ebook


AudioFile Reviews 2013 June
You see the book's title, and you make certain assumptions. It's a classic. It's uniquely English. And it will capture (or recapture) your imagination as only great books can. If you've never read it, let this version be your introduction. If you've already experienced it in print, then indulge yourself in a terrific audio experience. From the very start--and I mean the first word of this production--narrator Simon Vance raises a banner that announces a once-in-a-lifetime performance that exquisitely matches narrator and text. Vance has a mellifluous English voice, an engaging tone, and marvelous diction. The elastic quality of his voice delightfully differentiates the myriad characters that live between Dickens's pages. The result is a wonderful listening experience for all ages--not to be missed. R.I.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
