Publisher's Summary

Charles Dickens is known for writing the greatest of all Christmas stories: A Christmas Carol. But few know that he wrote a number of other short stories for that holiday season. Here in one wonderful audio collection are six short stories about Christmas: "A Christmas Tree", "What Christmas Is as We Grow Older", "The Poor Relation's Story", "The Child's Story", "The Schoolboy's Story" and "Nobody's Story".

Disappointing!

Written by Charles Dickens and the subject is Christmas stories? Who could go wrong?? Well, take it from me -- don't waste your time on this one; the stories are pointless ramblings that go on and on to no purpose. I kept thinking the next one would be better but none of the stories were worthy of any author, least of all Charles Dickens.

The reader is satisfactory, but it just doesn't make up for the lack of content.

Hard to Get Into

These stories are really only for the serious Dickens fans, and even those might be disappointed. It's collection of lesser known Christmas stories by Charles Dickens, and...most of them are a bit difficult to to connect with. Many are pretty melancholy, which isn't a bad thing, and some of them feel more like ruminations on Christmas than actual stories, which is also not a bad thing. But for me, the stories often fell flat.

Adams reads them competently, but didn't really elevate the stories (to my ears).

I doubt I'll be listening to this particular collection again.
