Summary

Beloved by generations, Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol tells the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge – the greedy, “bah-humbug!” penny-pincher devoid of kindness and compassion. When he is visited by three specters – the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet-to-Come – they illuminate the error of his ways, leading to an inspiring transformation. Jon Smith’s brilliant performance, full of fun voices and dramatic flair, will leave listeners riveted. Get in the Christmas spirit with this literary classic.

Narrator not Great.

This is a great book no question. But the narrator isn't so great. He mispronounces many words and at times I got the impression he was just reading a collection of words that he didn't even understand.

The narrators voice is so odd

I love a Christmas Carol every season I watch the movies over and over. Listening or reading to Dickens story is the best part of the season, but why this narrator is speaking so very softly is beyond me,,after all it’s not a Halloween story!!
