A Christmas Carol and The Night Before Christmas

A Christmas Carol and The Night Before Christmas
: Charles Dickens, Clement Clarke Moore



A Christmas Carol has been a favorite story of mine for many, many years. I also like The Night before Christmas. My Christmas Season can now begin! I will be listening to this over and over!!!!!

The short narration in between the two stories was enlightening with information that I didn't previously know. That added just a little more excitement for me.



The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Derek Perkins and Alison Larkin



This is an enjoyable listen and it was free from Audible.

A WONDERFUL holiday recording of two great classic

Would you listen to A Christmas Carol and The Night Before Christmas again? Why?

Oh yes! It was delightful - such a treat - to hear my two favorite Christmas stories in the same recording! And read so beautifully with very interesting commentary in between.


What was one of the most memorable moments of A Christmas Carol and The Night Before Christmas?

The moment when Scrooge wakes up and realizes it is not too late!


What does Derek Perkins and Alison Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

These are two A list narrators - the very best - at the top of their game. Both Mr Perkins and Mis Larkin have a gift for bringing out the author's voice through their own. They do it again here - with two of the greatest texts ever written. I was so happy to hear Derek Perkins reading this - he is SO GOOD. I loved Alison Larkin's narrations of Jane Austen and Lewis Carroll 's novels, which was how I found this. The combination of these two voices makes for a really top notch recording.


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

Yes.


Any additional comments?

It was so interesting listening to the short commentary by Alison Larkin in between the tales, linking the two stories in a very interesting way. I won't spoil it - but it's really fascinating!
