Les Miserables Audio Drama Review

Audio Drama Review of Les Miserables
by Victor Hugo
  performed by Focus on the Family Radio Theater

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

I decided to check out this edition of famed drama Les Miserables for a road trip from Houston to New Orleans.  At the time, I knew little about the story and thought it would be good just to kill some time.  Focus on the Family Radio Theater uses a full cast, cinema sound and an original music score for this delightful rendition.  True to Huge Victor's original masterpiece, this splendid production follows the tale of Jean Valjean as he encounters savage injustice from the law and the gentleness and grace of God.  My family (even my husband) absolutely loved the story of Jean Valjean and the account of redemption, courage and integrity throughout.  Not only is the story a perfect portrayal of godly character for your family, but the audio drama is top notch.  From the music score to the characters, the quality is outstanding.  I highly recommend this story for families - and children 8 and up.  The set comes with three CD's and is 169 minutes long.  Don't miss out on this set for you and your family.  You won't be disappointed.

(I received this audio drama free from Tyndale Blog Network  as part of their blogging program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

NEXT UP!  Reviews coming your way this Winter....
