'If I had my way, every idiot who goes around with Merry Christmas on his lips, would be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. Merry Christmas? Bah humbug!' Charles Dickens’ ghostly tale of sour and stingy miser Ebenezer Scrooge has captivated readers, listeners and audiences for over 150 years. This Christmas, Audible Studios brings this story to life in an audio drama featuring an all-star cast.

What an excellent retelling of this story. Performances were as you would expect from such performers .Although the tale is well known it was a joy to listen to and I would thoroughly recommend it to almost anyone.

Ever since he became a Christian at the age of forty, it has been Poirot actor David Suchet's dream to make an audio recording of the whole Bible. In between filming the final episodes of Poirot, David Suchet spent over 200 hours in the recording studio to create the very first full-length audio version of the NIV Bible spoken by a single British actor. Volume 2 of the NIV Audio Bible includes the Prophets, Gospels, Acts and Letters, covering the books of Isaiah to Revelation.

I bought part two of the NIV as narrated by David Suchet because the reading of it was so beautiful and someone had posted that it had an index. It doesn't have an index and sadly , for me, that was a serious omission. I have passages that I love to return to and read again and again and having to waste time guessing where they might be located Was an irritation that spoilt the download. I returned the item. If the editors can sort out chapter and verse I will be the first to download it again.
