This book was beautifully written with the style and flair of Charles Dickens himself. The story gives some back story to the beloved classic “A Christmas Carol”. A beautiful message of redemption and giving is timely for the holiday season. The narrator was absolute perfection with a British accent, perfect articulation, and just the right amount of heart and enthusiasm. I listened to the entire book in one afternoon while I worked. One of my top three all-time Audible favorites!

This was very much a spur of the moment purchase but I am so glad I've had chance to experience it. The writing is superb and captures the feel of the Dickens era novel but won't alienate the modern reader.
The narration is very good and I will be looking out for more of Simon Vance's work.
The story runs very naturally and there is no feeling that there has been any rush to cram in plot points just so it meets exactly with A Christmas Carol - it just does. The mark of good writing.
I hate giving away spoilers so all I will add is that Marley's life, death and subsequent afterlife make fascinating reading/listening.

A nice new perspective on the Scrooge and Marley story.... Vance does a good job of the narration
