Reviews

(4.5 stars)

This was an excellent book & reading. I was drawn in by the context & delivery. Skeptical at first bcuz of his accent, Tadhg did an amazing job & the accent really lent itself to these characters perfectly! loved it.

Amazing

(5 stars)

One of the best parts of this story is the man who reads it. He has different voices for each character. They are done so well, I forget there is only one person reading the story. I would not be able to keep track of all those different voices if it was me! He makes the story very easy to follow. In regards to the story itself, it was wonderful. There are so many twists and turns that you sometimes want to pull your hair out, but some moments also make you smile and laugh. There is never a dull moment and I love learning about all the different characters. I never thought I would enjoy the story as much as I did.

love it!!

Oliver Twist

(5 stars)

The story of Oliver Twist has been a favorite of mine since childhood. The reader in this version truly brings the characters to life, whether they are male or female. Thank you, for making available many good audio books.

Just beautifully read

(5 stars)

Just finished 53 chapters of amazing narration. Blown away, and so grateful for the unbelievable talent freely offered. Tadgh, I'll eat Mr. Grimwig's head and mine for dessert if audible could find anything this good to sell us darlings! Thank you from Seattle in the Other Washington!

great version

(5 stars)

Dear Tadhg, thank you very much for this great and lively version of Oliver Twist. I could hardly stop listening to it because your reading made it so suspenseful. I strongly recommend listening to this version! :)

Wonderful reading

(5 stars)

My first Dickens novel. (and his first, too). Although the plot of the story and the character oft the hero are very far from convincing, still the language , wit and realism are compelling and show the author's genius. Absolutely fantastic reading, bringing each character to life, making every sentence even of lengthy parts a pleasure to listen to. Performance of a quality rare even in commercially produced Audio books. Are you an actor by profession or just a rare talent, Taghd?

(5 stars)

This reading was very enjoyable. The reader did a top-notch job. He was very articulate and added a lot of depth to the reading by altering his voice, portraying emotion, his inflection, etc. I was entertained and engaged from the first chapter to the last.
