    Les Miserable

    Does anyone have a great recommendation for the audio reading of Les Miserable? I checked Martin's list and he doesn't mention an audio recommendation, so I am turning to you guys for help. By the way, I just finished listening to Anna Karenina. It was my companion all summer while canning in my kitchen. As always, Marrtin's recommendation was spot-on. The book was absolutely life changing and David Horovitch was an excellent reader. Now on to Les Miserable. I really need a good audio for car trips and kitchen work. I don't have time to sit down with the book as I am tackling City of God with my junior this year, along with a whole stack of other reads. Thanks for your help.

    Excellent on getting through AK! I really enjoyed Bill Homewood as narrator for Les Miserables.

      When there are multiple narrators on Hoopla for the same book, I put his/her name into Amazon and listen to a sample. I can tell immediately if I'm going to like listening to it. Librivox is also usually great, although not as easy as Hoopla with it's speed control and 15 sec rewind button!

      Sorry I don't have a rec.

        Congrats on AK! For LM, I've listened to Frederick Davidson as it is the only unabridged option available through my library on digital download (Libby). It's listed as 58 hours! There are four other options and they are more in the 5 to 13 hour range. Hopefully that tidbit will be helpful as you look at audio options to make sure you're getting a full reading.
        Happy listening!

            Make sure to sample it before buying, Melisa Burke . Audible and Christian Audio has samples to try and some have complained about the audio quality of Les Miserables. Christian Audio has a great sale twice a year where almost any book in its catalog is $7.49/title. That is a great time to stock up on these 50+ hour classics on audiobook. Big savings.
