Publisher's Summary

This is a full-cast recording of Charles Dickens' classic holiday favorite A Christmas Carol, the tale of miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge.
It is Christmas Eve, and the air outside is as cold as Scrooge's heart. Come nightfall, Scrooge receives three visitors: the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Each spirit takes him on a hair-raising journey through time, yielding glimpses of Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit-and even Scrooge's painfully hopeful younger self. Will Scrooge's heart be opened? Can he escape his cursed fate?

Dick van Dyke does Dickens

Dreadful faux English accents, cries of "Happy New Years" and a terrible moment, worse by far than any of the ghosts, when Tiny Tim is sent, with Martha, to "go and 'wash up' before lunch".
Unless you seek a festive cringe, look elsewhere for your Dickens Christmas fix.
