Ben-Hur could be said to be the first American blockbuster. When it was published in 1880, it sold over two million copies and was translated into numerous languages. It combines all the best elements of popular classic, epic, and action stories against a background of authoritative historical detail. The pace and immediacy of Ben-Hur was the basis of its appeal to filmmakers - Charlton Heston's portrayal of the title role became one of the classics of the cinema. Wallace's original novel has been largely forgotten now, but as this reading shows, the story, together with the sweeping rhythm of the writer's prose, make it ideally suited to audio.

    " I started this book in the summer and found it rather dull. But then school started again, and I realized this book is so much more exciting than textbooks! It was a good book after all, but hard to get into. "

    " After trying to read this several times in the past couple years I finally finished it a couple weeks ago. It's a really awesome book. It's exciting and has some very moving parts if you are a person of faith. I listened to it as an audio book. It is very detailed in its visual descriptions. "

    " This books has a great beginning - the meeting of the Magi - but I was dissatisfied with the ending; it felt trite. "
