Downpour Deal of the Week
  • Les Misérables - Victor Hugo ($9.95) -- exp 13 Mar

Translated by Charles E. Wilbour
Read by Frederick Davidson
Length 58.0 hrs • Unabridged

Quote:
Set in the Parisian underworld of the early nineteenth century, Les Misérables follows the adventures of Jean Valjean, once an honest peasant, who spent nineteen years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s starving family. A hardened and bitter criminal upon his release, Valjean is transformed when an act of compassion by a priest he robbed saves him from returning to prison. Changing his identity and his ways, Valjean becomes a successful industrialist and eventually the town mayor. Taking compassion on the poor, he raises the orphaned daughter of a prostitute as his own, never telling her of his shady past. Yet he is haunted by it, still pursued relentlessly by the police inspector Javert, who does not believe in moral redemption. When Valjean’s daughter, Cosette, falls in love with a young revolutionary, Javert concocts a plot to catch both the lawless peasants and the elusive Valjean once and for all. Full of suspense, romance, and powerful social commentary, this sweeping epic became the gospel of the oppressed and is widely considered one of the greatest French novels of its age.

Thx, I had a $10 credit on the account (and something at $14 I was wanting...)

I actually read the unabridged book in French when I was still young and at university. To tell the truth, I am not even tempted to try the audiobook nowadays - while the story is good, it is also very very long-winded. (I liked it at the time, though.)

By the way, Downpour also has a sale of sports titles (30% off):
http://www.downpour.com/catalogsearc...r=release_date

Nothing for me, but maybe someone here will find it to their taste.

Downpour's Deal of the Week:

Quote:
Richard Coulter is a man who has everything. His beautiful new wife is pregnant, his upstart airline is undercutting the competition and moving from strength to strength, his diversification into the casino business in Macau has been successful, and his fabulous Art Deco house on an Irish cliff top has just been featured in Architectural Digest. But then, for some reason, his ex-wife Rachel doesn’t keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard’s two daughters. Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls. As Killian follows Rachel’s trail, he begins to see that there is a lot more to this case than first meets the eye and that a thirty-year-old secret is going to put all of them in terrible danger.

McKinty is at his continent-hopping, well-paced, evocative best in this thriller, moving between his native Ireland and distant cities within a skin-of-his-teeth timeframe.

The Picture of Dorian Grey is one of my favourite classics. This narrator sounds good in the sample, but I have the version narrated by Simon Prebble, it's excellent.

The narrator (Steven Crossley) is the same one who narrates Connie Willis's To Say Nothing of the Dog, and he is very good. I have a German version of the book from Audible.de, but I still downloaded this one because of the narrator.
