Radio Theatre Les Miserables

Les Miserables (Radio Theatre)

Les Miserables is a beautiful story of redemption, after Jean Valjean is released from prison after 19 years he finds himself with no work or food and people will not even allow him to stay because of his label of convict. Valjean finds refuge from a Bishop who feeds him and gives him a place to stay where Valjean decides to steal from the Bishop and flee and is soon caught by police but instead of the Bishop charging Valjean, he gives him something and changes Valjeans life. Turning his life around he is still hunted by Javert, a policeman who believes that a criminal can never change.

Focus on the Family and Radio Theatre has done a beautiful rendition of Les Miserables, you will love Victor Hugo’s story. Originally Les Miserables is quite a lengthy book, but Radio Theatre has compressed it to only three discs, because of this you do lose a lot of the story and it does not make as much as an impact. However, Radio Theatre has done a great job in creating an abridged version that is acceptable for kids to listen to, it is recommended for 8 and up.

Overall I enjoyed the story and the cast that read this story, I was disappointed in how much the story was shortened.

I received this audiobook complimentary from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
