Summary

Gerald Dickens, great, great grandson of Charles Dickens, reads this traditional Christmas tale, in which Ebenezer Scrooge is taught the true meaning of Christmas by a series of ghostly visitors.

Published in 1843, A Christmas Carol has become as much a part of Christmas as trees and stockings, plum pudding and mistletoe, enjoyed by children and adults alike.

This audiobook includes a special feature, as family member Gerald Dickens recounts his understanding of this classic story.

I didn't care for the narrator

Certainly one of the best stories of all time. Narration, in this instance, is everything.

Best narrator anywhere!

Gerald Dickens is a great voice for his great grandad's books....he varies his speech to suit the characters, he enunciates properly, and he makes the stories live. I have bought all of his narrated books...I love them!

I listened to this one straight through while at the gym. I may listen to it again.

My highest recommendation.
