Everyone knows the tale, but not everyone has read the book. I didn't, so I'm happy to say the book is equal to any movie or visual depiction I have seen. Dickens writes in peerless prose and it's worth reading just for that. The only character truly fleshed out is Scrooge himself, but that is enough to carry the book because it is only novella length.
The narrator is fantastic, with a broad range of voices and English accents, and always the right tone and inflection. A must-read for any fan of Christmas and good writing.

We all know the narrative. No surprise there. Actually I don't even like the story, but had to read it again for a project I am working on. What made me LOVE that audible book is Anton Lesser's performance. A spectacular voice artist who beautifully serves Dickens's lush and witty language. His voice allows him to play all the parts, male, female, young, and old, with the same convincing ease. It may very well have been the first time I actually did enjoy the story.

I really enjoyed this complete rendition of A Christmas Carol.
Beautifully narrated. This actor has a voice very well suited to the work. His character reading is excellent, even the female characters. He brought the story to life.

A good, well delivered, unabridged narration of an accessible yet classic Christmas story with good staging.
