Whether you are stuck in traffic, waiting for your connection, cramming for that English test, or just relaxing on your sofa, Traveling Classics provides your most beloved audiobooks at the touch of your finger.

This application contains a full, unabridged AUDIOBOOK of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It is the story of a young boy, Pip, and his "great expectations" for his life - first a trade as a blacksmith's apprentice, then a mysterious inheritance, an unrequited love, and a variety of worthy and unworthy friends. But then an escaped convict from his distant past comes calling, and all Pip's hopes dissolve.

The Traveling Classics Reader provides:
- A crisp, sleek interface for navigating the book and controlling playback
- A delightfully clear and engaging narration of the entire book
- The full text of the novel, which scrolls in sync with the narration for easy reference
- Never loose your place; the reader will keep track of where you are in the book so can resume playback at the click of a button.

The recording used in this application is taken from the LibriVox project. This project has volunteers from around the world record their favorite classic books and then release them for the world to enjoy.

This application contains the full book in one download so that you can listen to the book wherever you are, without the need for an internet connection. Perfect for those long plane trips or commutes on the subway. This does, however, mean that the application is larger than most. So you will have to download it over WiFi or through iTunes on your Mac or PC.

  • Alright

    I like the efficiency of the app. But I personally think the speed that the guy talks in is waaaaay too slow. If he talked faster it would definitely be a 5. This app is good though if you are really patient and have a lot of time on your hands. This app is not that good if you plan on cramming chapters in one night. I would advise the makers to have a speed selection that would let you control the speed the guy talks in.

    Without this app, I would have been 25 chapters behind this novel. And also, it's not that bad when someone is reading to you, 5/5 and well worth every penny spent!!!

    It looked like it was going to work but it won't open!I am a very slow reader and I only have one week to read Great Expectations. It might be a waste of you money. It was a waste to me.
