Summary

A very short Dickens story relating our journey through life in 5 stages: being merry when very young, playing while a child, in love as a young adult, being busy in middle age with a family, and remembering in old age. Though sad throughout, Dickens has a flash of uplift at the end. A classic story for the Christmas season when one tends to do summing up during the holiday and the almost-new year. Another Dickens must-listen. Read by an American voice by listener request.
