What the Critics Say

Audie Award Winner, Classics, 2005

"The versatile British actor’s performance of Scrooge as he discovers that his body is left abandoned on a denuded bedstead is as raw and real as when the classic tale was written in the closing weeks of 1843. Dale makes us believe in the Scrooge whose spark has been quenched and carries us along as we watch the various spirits blow the ashes into embers, and the embers into a merry blaze of timeless Christmas cheer."

Jim Dale is a great narrator

Jim Dale (voice of the Harry Potter books) does a fantastic job with this Holiday classic. His voices for the various characters make this very entertaining to listen to.

Now,if we could only get Harry Potter books on Audible....
