A classic beautifully read

Martin Jarvis does an excellent job of reading this story. Like the best narrators, it seems like he is telling you the tale from memory rather than reading from the page. If you have a long journey to make over Christmas then this is the perfect length to put you in the holiday mood. I loved it.

A Christmas Carol. read by Martin Jarvis.

Where does A Christmas Carol rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A favourite but not my number one favourite.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Scrooge. I love the way he changes with each Ghost.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Where Scrooge realises that he is the body under the sheet.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It's a real feel good story to watch Scrooge become a better human being as the story unfolds.

Any additional comments?

Martin Jarvis is one of my favourite audio readers, especially when he reads Dickens as he has a natural affinity for exactly interpreting the characters.

A Captivating Performance

Another excellent reading by Martin Jarvis. He may not be to everyone's taste, but for me this is the definitive audio version.
