Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up—Charles Dickens's classic tale of one family's suffering during the French Revolution is brought to life in this audio adaptation. The voice of Audie Award-winning narrator Simon Vance sets the tone for the characters and creates the Dickensesqe mood of the times when the rich and the poor were far apart and no one was exempt from the ensuing wrath during the Revolution. Vance's stone varies from soothing to animated while creating different voices for the characters and using appropriate accents. A bonus feature on the last CD is an e-book in pdf format that can be printed or used as a read-along while listening to the audio. This easily navigated feature would be particularly helpful for struggling readers.—Jeana Actkinson, Bridgeport High School, TX

Review

'I shall treasure the richly detailed explanatory notes. It's an edition which will surely sell to the general reader; yet many truer Dickens specialists than I will be excited by the scope and subtlety of the introduction.' Dr P. Merchant, Christ Church College, Canterbury

'The large clear print, very full notes, and inclusion of Dickens's number plans make it the best paperback available for student use.' Professor Norman Page, University of Nottingham

`I read it every other year. It is the best story of the best hero. It does not pale.' You (Mail on Sunday Magazine) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Enough biblio/source info in intros for the dedicated Dickens lover. A good buy at the discounted price on A.com or used book store. Third time reading A Tale; gets better everytime.

I adore these versions of the classics. They will definitely be something I can pass down to posterity. They come also with great notes in the back making them very functional not just pretty versions.

I loved the book as for its contens, but nowadays , with all that cheap paperback standards, when you find some hardbound, fabric covered book, is a gift.
Is great if you want to make a present that is a good read and a good object.
