Audible Editor Reviews

Alger’s classic is just the type of inspirational rags-to-riches story you expect from him. At the book’s center is Harry, a 14-year-old who overcomes multiple challenges after leaving home to find work so that he can repay his father’s debt. Narrator MacLeod Andrews gives a terrific performance, creating unique voices for the book’s central characters. The multiple personalities Andrews employs provide a sense of realism and optimism, which complement a story wholly consistent with Alger’s message that hard work can mean the difference between success and failure. While designed for teens and juveniles, Alger’s work continues to have universal appeal, making this book appropriate for listeners of all ages.
