This delightful tale of thwarted ambition and forbidden love follows the adventures and
fortunes of an endearing young rogue, Frank Softly. Originally appearing serialized in Household
Words in 1859, the Rogue is one of Collins's most richly comic creations.

Propelled into society by his ever-hopeful father, Frank is introduced to a variety of professions in order
to make his fortune. Not industrious by nature, however, Frank finds working life a challenge, and by
his twenty-fifth birthday, he has failed medicine, portrait-painting, caricaturing, and even forgery.
Disenchanted with life, he despairs of ever finding something to commit tountil he meets Alicia Dulcifer
and her inexplicably wealthy father.

Proffering his own take on picaresque storytellingand with many a grain of truth for twenty-somethings
todaythis is Wilkie Collins at his entertaining best.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
