    "I absolutely love this book, but I really don't have time to read anymore chasing around two young kids. I bought the audiobook so I could listen to it and it is just wonderful. I feel like I can enjoy the story more listening to someone retell it for me. The way the person speaks is just entrancing and really helps me get absorbed in the book again."

    "This book is a classic-I love the story, but the part of Dorian was so not-fitting! He sounded a lot older than he was supposed to be and mumbled quite a bit. Librovox is a great app for listening to the classics and the people that volunteer to do the reading are usually really good. To make it even better, they should audition people first or have some way of making sure that the voices match the characters they're playing. Amazon offers a wide variety of ways to buy the book and read reviews, but it is not affiliated with Librovox, which is free. That is why I'm only giving it a 3 rating."

    ""Oliver Twist" is a relatively early novel by Charles Dickens. The title character is a child who ends up affiliated with a band of criminals. I like this novel very much, and in many ways it is a typical novel by Charles Dickens. The novel is clearly meant for mass appeal in the Victorian Society within which it was written. A modern reader may find Victorian fiction to be somewhat ornate and "wordy". Personally I like it very much. Charles Dickens is my second favorite author of Victorian fiction after my favorite author of all, George Eliot. I have never read a Dickens novel that I did not complete enjoy. As stated these novels were written for mass appeal and consumption in Victorian England. Charles Dickens published these novels in serial form in periodicals. He would attempt to assess the reception of his work with his readers and thus the novel may be revised before the next installment. In general, Charles Dickens has a wry and ironic sense of humor. I find hm extremely humorous. His writing is, at times, sentimental, but again, I enjoy it, in doses. I always read Charles Dickens novels while simultaneously listening to a professional audiobook narration and did so with "Olivier Twist" and always find the professional narration adds to my reading experience."

    "The War of the Worlds is a classic science fiction book and I love having an audio-book version of it! The cast was stellar and all were amazing voice actors, which made it so fun to listen to. When I read the book version it could be a little dry at some parts; hearing it acted out made it exciting and captivating all the way through."

    "Tess is a great book. It gives an accurate and moving account of a time thankfully now gone by. It is not, however, an easy read and it takes some tenacity to get through it. Fantastic to listen to as an audiobook. This link does not offer that option, however. "
