Free Audiobook Thursday!

I’m a little more clam this week, not shouting. But it’s still cool and fun. And especially because I LOVE one of this week’s books.

Orphans and Charles Dickens are the themes that tie this weekGreat Expectations‘s books together. The classic book is Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations. There’s a lot of cultural knowledge in this one. Being able to understand references to Pip and Miss Havisham make this worth reading. Some people even think it’s a good story. (I, however, am not one of those people…I’m still a little ticked off at Mrs. Suppa for making me waste precious summer hours reading this in 9th grade.)

Greadodgert Expectations is paired with Terry Pratchett’s very funny novel Dodger, in which Pratchett imagines Charles Dickens meeting the inspiration for his character The Artful Dodger. I love this book and have listened to the audio and it is incredibly well done.

Both books can be downloaded until next Wednesday at Sync.
