Summary

"A ghostly little book", said Charles Dickens of his famous Christmas novella, which first appeared in 1843. It has become the most famous classic Christmas story of all, with the miserly figure of Scrooge, the epitome of the callous employer; sadly crippled Tiny Tim; and the three spectres: the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Future.
This audiobook continues the award-winning series of Dickens' works read by leading English classical actor Anton Lesser.

One of my favourite Christmas stories

I really enjoyed this complete rendition of A Christmas Carol.

Beautifully narrated. This actor has a voice very well suited to the work. His character reading is excellent, even the female characters. He brought the story to life.

A charming seasonal tale

A good, well delivered, unabridged narration of an accessible yet classic Christmas story with good staging.

What can you say about a classic

Everyone knows the tale, but not everyone has read the book. I didn't, so I'm happy to say the book is equal to any movie or visual depiction I have seen. Dickens writes in peerless prose and it's worth reading just for that. The only character truly fleshed out is Scrooge himself, but that is enough to carry the book because it is only novella length.

The narrator is fantastic, with a broad range of voices and English accents, and always the right tone and inflection. A must-read for any fan of Christmas and good writing.

Not just Dickens

We all know the narrative. No surprise there. Actually I don't even like the story, but had to read it again for a project I am working on. What made me LOVE that audible book is Anton Lesser's performance. A spectacular voice artist who beautifully serves Dickens's lush and witty language. His voice allows him to play all the parts, male, female, young, and old, with the same convincing ease. It may very well have been the first time I actually did enjoy the story.
