77 AVAILABLE IN THIS CATEGORY
Hugely popular series published by Orbis,  featuring the voice of famous actors reading from great works of literature. Originally issued on audio cassettes (pair), later issues - less common - were on double CD. 

These audio books represent some of the greatest works of fiction ever written in the English language. Each expertly abridged novel has been selected for its narrative power, range of characters and its place in our literary heritage. Two cassette tapes (or CDs) hold an abridged version of each novel, average running time 2 hours 25 minutes. Each double cassette is housed in a case in the form of a 5” x 8” book with a beautiful colour cover, often depicting a photo of a scene or character from a film/TV dramatisation. The cassettes have been manufactured using top quality tape for low noise and enhanced clarity. All recordings feature music that has been sensitively chosen to enrich the story. “Talking Classics” assembled a star cast to read the world’s great novels to you including Martin Shaw, Hannah Gordon, Jenny Agutter, Martin Jarvis, Joanna Lumley and Robert Powell.
