Audio Review- Oliver Twist

The audio dramatization of Oliver Twist is based on the classic tale written by Charles Dickens. The plot itself is timeless and emotion filled. Based on a little boy called Oliver, who was born an orphan, who later was forced to work amiss horrible conditions in a work house, Oliver has had his fair share of difficulty. When certain circumstances put him in harms way, it will take courage, love, and the truth to set young Oliver free from the cruel world that is ready to swallow him whole. 

Though I've never read the book, The Parish Boy's Progress the story of Oliver Twist, I very much enjoyed listening to the dramatization version. From the lovely english accents, to the stirring music, and sound effects, this series was beautifully done. On occasion the narrator would shed light to some unfamiliar customs and behaviors, making the audio drama all the more understandable and enjoyable. 

The packaging itself is beautiful. The package consists of five cds with the different scenes printed on it. One bonus dvd is included containing the behind the scenes, and a documentary of the modern day Oliver's. Divided into about 10 sections/scenes per disc made it easy to bookmark your spot. 

The 5 1/2 hours will be one of imagination, suspense, and endearment. I give the Radio Theatre's Oliver Twist a much deserved 5 out of 5.

I received Oliver Twist from Tyndale Publishers in exchange from this independent and unbiased review.
