Summary

Charles Dickens is probably the greatest novelist England ever produced. His innate comic genius and shrewd depictions of Victorian life - along with his memorable characters - have made him beloved by readers the world over.

A Christmas Carol was published in 1843 to huge success and has continued to be one of the most popular and enduring Christmas stories of all time.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a heartless old miser who doesn't enjoy Christmas and doesn't think anyone else should, either. But, one Christmas Eve, some ghostly visitors take Scrooge on a journey that changes his mind for ever.

Let down by recording

It suddenly goes loud occassionally. And wobbles at one point in chapter 3 which is a shame for a great story and nice narrator's voice
