Either listen to or read it today - you won't regret it!

I really enjoyed this short story, which is based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, but set in the modern world. I liked the way it had been adapted and brought up to date - the use of an Uber-type Taxi as the method by which Scrooge is chauffeured was great, and I loved that the actual car was appropriate to the 'ghost' - classic for past, futuristic self-driving for future etc. Touches like this were, in my view, what elevated the story from good to excellent.
I listened to the audiobook version of the story (on Christmas Eve, of course!), which was excellently narrated by Steve White. He really brought the story to life with his fabulous voices for the characters, and his vibrancy of storytelling: he enjoyed telling it, so I enjoyed listening to it.
I'd definitely recommend listening to the story if you can, you'll definitely love it. But whether you listen or read it, please add this book to your library today - you won't regret it!
NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
