Publisher's Summary

William Collins Books and Decca Records are proud to present ARGO Classics, a historic catalogue of classic fiction read by some of the world’s most renowned voices.

Three of the finest novels of the 19th century are brought together in this wide-ranging collection.

From the rumblings of provincial England in Silas Marner and Cranford to a wild and dangerous journey across the Holy Lands in Ivanhoe, these classic novels of the Georgian and Victorian period are as relevant and important today as they ever have been.

These classic stories are read by Fawlty Towers’ Prunella Scales; The Jewel in the Crown’s Tim Pigott-Smith; and Dame Judi Dench.

NOT three novels

I thought I was purchasing three novels - it is, instead, a mere 21 chapters. I didn't even listen to it, as I was going to listen to Ivanhoe first - then realized it wasn't three complete novels.
