Tom Baker reads Charles Dickens' timeless seasonal story.
Charles Dickens' story of solitary miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is taught the true meaning of Christmas by the three ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, has become one of the timeless classics of English literature. First published in 1843, it introduces us not only to Scrooge himself but also to the memorable characters of underpaid desk clerk Bob Cratchit and his poor family, the poorest amongst whom is the ailing and crippled Tiny Tim.
In this new recording, Tom Baker delivers a tour-de-force performance as he narrates the story. The listener joins Scrooge on Christmas Eve, witnesses the visitation of Marley's ghost, and is given a glimpse of the many homes and lives which Scrooge has touched in his wretched life to date. This ultimately uplifting tale is a festive delight to be treasured and listened to again and again.

Masterful performance of classic tale
Classic Christmas Tale
I enjoyed listening to the book, as it was much easier going than I remember from reading it some years ago.
I have always liked Bob Crachett the best, his ability to try to defend Scrooge in the face of his awful treatment at his hands, gives me some faith in humankind.
Scrooge definately, the absolute ideal person to bring him to life, as I always imagined him sounding.
No, I expected it to be quite heavy going and to need to listen in bite sized chunks, in fact I was able to listen for much more sustained periods than I imagined.
Absolutely the best way to experience Dickens, I look forward to listening to another true classic, without the 'heavy going' of the printed page to detract from the enjoyment.
