This Christmas, Audible Studios brings this story to life in an audio drama featuring an all-star cast.

This is a great audio book. A really poignant re-telling of a traditional Christmas story that gets to the heart of the Christmas season. It is as relevant today as it was when Dickens wrote it and serves as a great reminder of the true message that we should seek to keep Christmas everyday.

Good suspense, about a man who collects fingers if a bet is forfeit. A good twist at the end which was difficult to predict.
