Awesome Book!

I loved reading this book (just finished reading stave 2) but the combo of Christmas and the phantoms is epic!

Rather disappointing

There are numerous errors in the narration. Words are used that sound like the correct word but have a different meaning from the original. There are also numerous mispronunciations throughout the reading.

Well done rendition of this classic!

Just as so many do, I love this story. I've seen so many adaptations of it, but never actually read the book. So when I found this unabridged audio, I had to hear it.

I am playing Bob Crachit locally this season for the 3rd year in a row. Having now heard the whole tale completely (with all the scenes and details which never make it to the films), in Dickens' wonderful prose, I understand him even better than before. I'm sure it will inform my performance.

This is very well done and I highly recommend it.

Excellent!

Is there a better book? I don’t know. It’s hard to beat A CHRISTMAS CAROL, the quintessential book on how to be a good human and how it’s never too late in this life to turn over a new leaf and improve yourself! Love love love this story! Especially right before Christmas. Highly recommend it to people of all ages! And 5 stars!

excellent narration

I couldn't have hoped for more. I purchased this to listen to in the car with older children during Christmas travels. Truly an excellent performance, pleasing to the ear and full of appropriate inflection and characterizations.

Very long version that I’m not sure was actually his book

This version may or may not be his original version, but I’ve n3ver hear it before and I’ve read several versions before. It had lots of descriptions about everything and at times was almost boring although I love this story. I don’t know if it’s the sameness of the guy reading it or what. Not my favorite version

Excellent reading of this wonderful classic!

Reader did a very good job voicing this classic! This was enjoyable to listen to with voices of the characters and such without being over the top. I highly recommend.

Enjoyed it....But

This is a classic book and I enjoyed, but it was read with a slight American accent. Didn't quite fit old Victorian London.
