Publisher's Summary

Set against the backdrop of the Gordon Riots of 1780, "Barnaby Rudge" is a story of mystery and suspense which begins with an unsolved double murder and goes on to involve conspiracy, blackmail, abduction and retribution. Through the course of the novel fathers and sons become opposed, apprentices plot against their masters and Protestants clash with Catholics on the streets. And, as London erupts into riot, Barnaby Rudge himself struggles to escape the curse of his own past. With its dramatic descriptions of public violence and private horror, its strange secrets and ghostly doublings, Barnaby Rudge is a powerful, disturbing blend of historical realism and Gothic melodrama.

TERRIBLE narration but decent story.

The narration was horrible!! It was so slow and recorded poorly. The voices were very annoying and grating on my ears. I'm only 6 hours into a 20 hour-something story but I doubt I will be able finish, it's very frustrating.

The story is good enough, the first Charles Dickens books I've ever listen to with Audible, but I regret buying this book (even if it was less than a dollar).

One of the best values on the app

I’d never heard of Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens, but found the sample intriguing. Grainne Regan performs a full cast of voices and as a story teller weaves a tale and holds ones interest, bringing the authors characters to life. Worth well more than the little more than half dollar price. Downloadable in 3 sections which is advisable if storage is a concern, this is quite the epic.
