Summary

"A ghostly little book", said Charles Dickens of his famous Christmas novella, which first appeared in 1843. It has become the most famous classic Christmas story of all, with the miserly figure of Scrooge, the epitome of the callous employer; sadly crippled Tiny Tim; and the three spectres: the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Future.

This audiobook continues the award-winning series of Dickens' works read by leading English classical actor Anton Lesser.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

One of my favourite Christmas stories

I really enjoyed this complete rendition of A Christmas Carol.

Beautifully narrated. This actor has a voice very well suited to the work. His character reading is excellent, even the female characters. He brought the story to life.

Excellent performance

By chance I bought this version, with narration by the same person as I had listened to for A Tale of Two Cities — excellent

A charming seasonal tale

A good, well delivered, unabridged narration of an accessible yet classic Christmas story with good staging.

Great overall

Really enjoyed this reading overall. Narrator was great except for one thing - he gives Scrooge a Yorkshire (?) accent which you do get used to but for me lost the overall audio book a star. Not that I’ve got anything against Yorkshire accents - just, for me, Scrooge is out and out a Londoner! Also some music at very random places that didn’t really add anything. MUCH to enjoy though
