Lovely classic Christmas story, interestingly read

What made the experience of listening to A Christmas Carol the most enjoyable?

I love the narrator's interesting reading, for the first minute or two, I was just listening to his voice, and then very quickly I forgot the narrator entirely and simply enjoyed his story! I think that is the mark of an excellent story-teller. I could see all the scenes in my head. I think I'll be listening to this version every Christmas! Thank you so much!

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Christmas Carol?

I must admit, I love the part about Tiny Tim the best, and can't ever hear, "God bless us, every one!" without blinking a few tears. Very dear.

What about Peter Bachelor’s performance did you like?

He seems to be a born story-teller, he makes the story interesting, with slightly different voices for characters, and reads with enough expression to be interesting but not so much as to be distracting.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it is 2 hrs and 44 minutes, so it is a long story, but perfect if you're in bed with the flu and don't feel like keeping your eyes open long enough watch TV. You can just close your eyes and enjoy the story.

Sound quality

I felt the sound quality was poor. I had a hard time hearing throughout the story with the volume on all the way.

Try a different narration

The book is short, concise, and more funny than I imagined, having seen films but never read the original. Typical moralistic story of change you ways or else.....
The narration however is not good, sorry to Peter Bachelor. He reads the speaking voices very well, but the rest is monotonously spoken as if reading a bus timetable, thereby losing the meaning of some sentences. I downloaded this version because it was cheap, and I needed to read it for my book group, but if you love the story, I would recommend a different narrator.

Try a different performance.

It's Dickens at his best but the reading is poor. My humble advice is to listen carefully to the sample and then choose a different performance.
