    David Copperfield is the story of a boy growing to maturity in the affairs of the world and of the heart, surrounded by some of Dickens' most memorable characters: David's eccentric great-aunt, Miss Betsey Trotwood; the ever-optimistic Mr Micawber; jolly Peggotty and her willing husband Barkis; the charming Steerforth; the ever so 'umble Uriah Heep; and the foolishly innocent Dora. But will David finally find happiness with the faithful Agnes Wickfield, whom he has known since childhood?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This dramatization is the best I've ever heard done of any Dicken's books. The characters are perfectly cast, and the story is wonderful. If you want to enjoy David Copperfield at its best, listen to this one!

    November 1958, New York. Into the rarefied atmosphere of wealth and tradition at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden comes the most unlikely of horses—a drab white former plow horse named Snowman—and his rider, Harry de Leyer. They were the longest of all longshots—and their win was the stuff of legend.

    Story

    Phenomenal! From plowhorse destined for the slaughter house to National Jumping Champion against the best, this gentle horse was all heart, and so was his rider, Harry de Leyer. "Nothing is impossible with God," (Luke 1:37)

  • Romeo and Juliet: Shakespeare Appreciated: (Unabridged, Dramatised, Commentary Options)

    Experience Romeo and Juliet as a powerful full-cast drama with entertaining and enlightening commentary that explains what's what and who's who as the plot unfolds. To help you get the most out of Shakespeare, the narrator offers historical insights and background information, so you can enjoy the jokes, appreciate the references, and get a real sense of Shakespeare's world.

    Marshall I. Cohen says: "If a child must read R&J, get this recording"
    "Extremely Disappointing!"

    Story

    What an incredible pity that Shakespeare's beautiful work is polluted by a commentary that is low-minded and without any respect for the upright and God-fearing man that Shakespeare was and communicated through his plays. Shakespeare would be horrified to hear his work inundated with a non-intellectual, disrespectful, and immoral-minded tone. I am deeply disheartened by this audio, and when I have recovered from my shock and dismay, will listen to the pure plays of Shakespeare as they were meant to be in all their beauty and uprightness.

    The free-spirited Anne Shirley has a beautiful way of looking at the world and touching our hearts. In this, the third volume of the Anne of Green Gables series, the irrepressible Anne dreams of the woman she hopes to be when she decides to leave Green Gables and her beloved Prince Edward Island for college. She is eager for new adventure.

    Story

    I never cease to marvel at the genius of Lucy Maud Montgomery. This book, as well as this whole series by her, has brought me so much deep joy and a love for the beauty of life. I'm now in the fifth book in her series, "Anne's House of Dreams," and I continue to absorb the incredible writing of this author. The narrator in this book sounds just like I would imagine Anne's voice to sound. A real winner!

    Hinds' Feet on High Places is Hannah Hurnard's best-known and best-loved book, a beautiful allegory dramatizing the yearning of God's children to be led to new heights of love, joy, and victory. Follow Much-Afraid on her spiritual journey through difficult places with her two companions, Sorrow and Suffering.

    Story

    A very powerful book! An allegory of the Christian spiritual life at its best. This book inspires one to reach the "High Places" of the spiritual life with the Shepherd of our souls as our guide. It is also an interesting story and well narrated. I read this book as a youth and have now returned to it after 20 years or so; it is now more powerful than ever.
