LibriVox opname van De Pickwick-Club, van Charles Dickens. Gelezen door Marcel Coenders. Dickens picareske verhaal over Samuel Pickwick en zijn vrienden (de ‘vurige’ Tracy Tupman, de ‘dichterlijke’ Augustus Snodgrass en de ‘sportieve’ Nathaniël Winkle) is eigenlijk nauwelijks een roman te noemen. Het lijkt vooral in het begin een losse bundeling schetsen van komische gebeurtenissen en ontmoetingen met merkwaardige figuren (zoals de verlopen acteur en oplichter Alfred Jingle),...

LibriVox recording of The Battle of Life, by Charles Dickens and read by Mark F. Smith. While "The Battle of Life" is one of Charles Dickens' Christmas Books - his annual release of a story just before Christmas - this one breaks the tradition by not being concerned with Christmas. Rather, its subtitle, "A Love Story", reveals more of the plot. The major events of this book take place on land that once was a battleground. That is just a backdrop for Dickens' idea of the real...

LibriVox recording of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Read in English by Greg Giordano "A Christmas Carol" has been credited with relaunching the celebration of Christmas as we know it. It relaunched Charles Dickens' literary career, that is for sure! More than that, and more importantly, it is an illustration of one "covetous old sinner" and his opportunity for redemption in the eyes of both God and man. For me the book holds a special meaning for it repeatedly shows...
