A Great Story Well Told!

There's no doubt that A Christmas Carol is a great story. It's a classic that we enjoy year after year, reminding us to keep Christmas in our hearts all year long. You just can't improve on that! But even a great story can be told in such a way it becomes boring and humdrum. Not so with this version!

B.J. Harrison is a master storyteller! His reading of this classic tale is mesmerizing. His versatility in vocalizing the various characters keeps the story fresh and fun to listen to. Even though this is a story you know well, you will be captivated all over again with Mr. Harrison's presentation.

I've been a fan of B.J. Harrison for a long time though his Classic Tales podcast - I can honestly say I've never heard him tell a story badly. He is a narrator who doesn't disappoint. Add this book to your audio collection so you can listen to it each year at Christmas. You won't be sorry!

A hard story to tell.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

A Christmas Carol is so well known and such a wonderful story that telling it is hard. The performance was OK, not great. Although it would be a great story no matter what, but so many Audible books are better. Maybe look for a different narrator.
