Audible Editor Reviews

Award-winning American voice actor Flo Gibson, known for her interpretation of classic novels, gives a first-rate performance of Oliver Twist by Victorian writer Charles Dickens. The title character, an orphan, has the worst imaginable childhood. He toils in a workhouse and then works for an undertaker. He later flees to London, where he becomes entangled with a group of young pickpockets, led by the criminal mastermind Fagin. Will Oliver be able to survive an onslaught of misfortune? Will he finally find a home and the happiness he so deserves?

Publisher's Summary

Young Oliver Twist, an orphan, runs away to London and falls in with Fagin and his band of child pickpockets, including the Artful Dodger, and suffers through abject poverty before discovering his true heritage and destiny. Charles Dickens' classic novel is more than an entertaining story, it was a cry for social reform as it followed Oliver through the poverty and criminal underworld of 19th-century London.

    "Spoiled by the narration."

    I suppose it's my own fault for not listening to the sample before buying, but how on earth can you listen to Oliver Twist narrated by an American?

    "Hard to understand"

    The content of Oliver Twist is excellent, however, the quality of the voice recording is so difficult to understand that I felt I was continually deciphering a code to be able to follow the story line. It made the experience less than enjoyable.

    "Good book, good narration, bad recording"

    I was very pleased with Flo Gibson's narration of this classic, but there's at least one gap of about 3 minutes in the action- unfortunately, it also happens to be one of the climaxes to the story! In case you want to listen to this recording anyway, and read the missing part, it's Chapter XLVII, "Fatal Consequences," and can be found on Project Gutenberg.
