Solid Stories with a Crafty Sounding Narrator
Sure! You'll either love the narrator or not. He's probably not the best guy to read The Night Before Christmas but for all of the other stories, he does a pretty nice job. Especially in the L. Frank Baum and Wilder stories, his range of voice and the devious nature of his tone come to full bloom.
Maybe the Holiday Classics Collection that Audible gave away for free a couple of years ago. Each story fit, was short and left you in wonder at the end.
I liked the bite in his voice for the demons in Santa Claus Kidnapped and the childish snobbery of the little girl in the Christmas Dream Come True story.
The little Match girl's story was sad but really sweet.
He could have read the Night Before Christmas with a lighter tone but the other stories were great.
- Thomas "I like Irish and Swedish crime thrillers and sociological exposes concerning African American life from Colonial times to the end of WWII. Recently I have taken a real liking to the works of Neal Stephenson and Fyodor Dostoevsky as well."
