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...

LibriVox recording of The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens. Recording by Alan Chant. The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final novel by Charles Dickens. It is a mystery indeed; the serial novel was just half completed at the time of Dickens' death - leading to much speculation on how it might have ended. The novel is named after Edwin Drood, one of the characters, but it mostly tells the story of his uncle, a choirmaster named John Jasper, who is in love with his pupil, Rosa Bud. Miss...

LibriVox opname van Het geheim van Edwin Drood, van Charles Dickens. Gelezen door Marcel Coenders. Het laatste maar onvoltooide werk van Charles Dickens. Een thriller waar de lezer dus zelf mag bedenken of verzinnen wie de dader is. En omdat het een echt Dickens verhaal is kan de lezer ook de happy ending bedenken. Zo kan iedere lezer een echte 'Droodian' worden en in de voetsporen van Sherlock Holmes treden want ook hij heeft zijn tanden stukgebeten op deze onopgeloste misdaad. (Samenvatting...

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...
