Les Misreables – Victor Hugo – Audio Drama
I enjoyed Les Miserables when I first watched the movie several years ago. I haven’t
had a chance to watch the newest musical/movie that just came out, but who
needs to when Radio Theatre comes out with such a wonderful dramatized presentation
of Victor Hugo’s classical novel.
lessons there were in Les Miserables!
It was wonderful! While we first meet Jean Valjean being released from prison
after 19 years, it isn’t long before God changes his life completely around.
What a wonderful example of Christ Valjean was to those around him! I grew
encouraged and inspired as Valjean tried to live every aspect of his life, for
and music kept everything moving along quickly and you get completely swept
away in the tale. I will say, this radio production is an abridge version of
the book. While I haven’t read the book, a relative of mine has, and they said
it is a bit abridges. I noticed a few things just from remembering the movie.
But, you also have to take into consideration that this is only a so long. I
can’t imagine how long it would have been if they’d done it unabridged!
listening to Les Miserables. It was
wonderful, from start to finish! It’s a radio production that you can listen to
and got lost in over and over. Don’t miss out on claiming this little jewel to
add to your collection!

That is a great radio drama – one of my favorites. There's nothing like a good radio drama to listen to on long car rides.
I absolutely love Les Mis! The play and the newest movie. I think my problem with listening to the audio of this is that I'd be wanting the music (from the play) to be in it.
I may just have to rent it from the library and listen to it on my next road trip. 🙂
I read the book years ago (an abridged version that didn't have the author's political mess in the middle of the story) and loved it.

Gillian – I am SO glad I own this now. I know it will be something I relisten to often! Yes, true, nothing like a good radio drama while the miles pass by. 🙂
Dawn – I haven't seen the newest movie yet, but I hope to sometime soon. 🙂 I haven't read the book yet, but I really need to! The movie I watched (LONG time ago!) and this radio drama are sooooooooo good!
I would love to hear this. My family has always loved focus on the Family's Adventures in Odsseys. Thanks for the review!
