Publisher's Summary

Charles Dickens was a major contributor to the romantic revival of Christmas traditions that occurred in the Victorian era. With their heart, humor and good morals, Dickens' Christmas stories have made the author's name synonymous with the season. Here we present four charming novellas to complete his series that began with "A Christmas Carol", with echoes of sleigh bells throughout. The stories include "The Chimes", "The Cricket on the Hearth", "The Battle of Life", and "The Haunted Man" - the perfect companion for the yearly celebrations. David Timson has directed, produced and read a great number of Naxos AudioBooks recordings, and is an authority on Dickens in particular.

A delightful collection, and the perfect companion to whichever performance of A Christmas Carol you prefer. Two of the stories here - The Chimes and The Cricket on the Hearth - are readily available elsewhere; but the other two, The Battle of Life and The Haunted Man, are harder to come by. And David Timson is the Dickens narrator nonpareil, and even if you have other versions of the stories, his interpretations are always a treat.
