DISCLAIMER: I am a Les Miserables fanatic!

I have read the full unabridged version of Les Miserables twice, led a discussion on it with my book club (highest score ever), seen it live on stage twice, watched the 10th Anniversary edition of the stage production and listened to the soundtrack of this edition more times than I can count, and watched the 2012 movie version a week before listening to this audio book.

This audio book will be proudly added to my collection of all things Les Miserables!

What a wonderful three hour abridgment that hits all the important elements of mercy and redemption in this story! It is the perfect way to introduce someone to this timeless message. It is also sensitive to a younger audience in that some of the "grittier" elements have been toned down (Fantine really WAS a prostitute in the book, but this is not emphasized in this abridgment making it appropriate for younger listeners.)

The acting is SUPERB. Brian Blessed is a seasoned actor that portrays Jean Valjean wonderfully.

The musical score is also beautiful. It will move you much like the music from the musical version does. I could not stop listening to this dramatization!

Five stars for this fine production that has been re-released to coincide with the release of the 2012 film.

NOTE: Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this audio book in exchange for an unbiased review.

I've read the unabridged version of Les Miserables at least five times. It is a wonderful masterpiece that hasn't been beat by any book I've read besides. Now, I love audio books, and I know that audio books have to abridge the novels that are so long. I don't mind that. But this audio totally changes the whole story. If someone hasn't read the book, they would get a total misrepresentation of the characters. I don't think they could even understand the true nature of any of the characters. It is an interesting audio, but misleading, and no where's near the masterpiece of the novel.

My boys(ages 15, 14 and 12) were a bit skeptical when we received this Radio Theatre production. You know, why do we want to listen to a story when we can't even pronounce the title? But they have learned that once I say yes, they are stuck, so they decided to make the best of it.

It took about a chapter for them to be completely sucked in. Focus on the Family Radio Theatre does a fabulous job. As always.

I was familiar with the storyline, but I have never actually read the book, or seen any of the myriad productions of it. It seemed that this production stayed fairly true to the basic plotline. Minus most of the extra non-plot discussions about the sewers of Paris or the Battle of Waterloo. From reading a reasonably detailed plot synopsis, I noticed a few differences between this production and the original story. Obviously, though, to condense an enormous novel into less than three hours of audio, you are going to have to make some changes.

The cast is fantastic and the music and sound effects enhance the story. This production convinced me to seriously start reading the book again, and it also got my husband to put one of the film versions on hold at the library.

I highly, highly recommend this production, especially if you want to introduce the story to kids.

Disclaimer: I received this production for free from Tyndale House Publishers. No other compensation was received. The fact that I received a complimentary product does not guarantee a favorable review.

Producer Dave Arnold is well known for picking interesting family friendly projects for the Focus on the Family brand of audios. Since this book will be soon made into a film with Hugh Jackman & Anne Hathaway, i thought it was time I re-reviewed this presentation.

i have heard everything Les Mis from the BBC audio presentation to Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater to Ronald Coleman and the Lux radio theater of the air. This production has a stronger heart. It also seems like something a family can listen to together without any family member being talked down to.

Brian Blessed makes the role of Jean Veljean with powerfulness with passion. Leo (Rumpole)McKern is M. Gillermond with a rye sense of character stealing. Geoffrey Palmer makes Javert something to enjoy.

What makes this interesting is the direction by Philip Glsasborow. He paces the action woth great vocal talent

This is true family entertainment at its best

I have seen the musical and watched the movie but never actually read the story before, so this was a treat. Always impressed by Radio Theatre productions and this one did not disappoint. Just finished the audio book this morning and I may have sat in my car a few more minutes (with a few tears in my eyes) to finish it off. Hoping this production company releases more books as I think we almost have them all!

Its the abridged version of the story, not the musical (thank goodness.) Masterfully produced and great to listen to with family on road trips. We listen to this frequently over the years and it never gets old. This radio drama format makes this classic even more of a classic in this medium. It quietly highlights Christian themes of sin and redemption (that we did not get in school) as the story pours out such wonderful characters in dramatic form, with moving musical score. About 3 hours long, but you don't want it to end.
