This dramatization of Dickens’s classic tale of a young orphan’s journey from poverty and misery to familial love and security is a fine introduction for young listeners. The production uses an omniscient narrator to set scenes and make transitions. This narrator’s clear and dispassionate voice introduces the listener to poor Oliver and keeps the story moving through numerous episodes to its happy ending. The other readers, men and women, are energetic and versatile throughout. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
