This is an absolute Christmas classic! Jim Dale does an amazing job bringing these beautiful characters to life. There is not a fictional piece that can make the holiday better.

This is an absolutely stunning book! Charles Dickens incredible writing at its best. Jim Dales performance is perfect. His rendition of Scrooge is unbelievably good and every other character will forever keep the memorable voice which he gives them, no matter how many times you read the book, or how many other versions you listen to. This is one of my favorite audio books ever! The end makes you want to weep, first with sorrow and compassion, and then with joy and gladness. A wonderful performance of a classic story of the beauty of Christian charity, at Christmas and always.

I've listened to Jim Dale's rendition of "A Christmas Carol" countless times since it was first published. His awesome voice brings a unique sound to each character, Ebeneezer Scrooge in particular. This is a flawless production that should be high on the listening list of any Dickens fan.
This is my favorite book and Jim Dale brings it to life. The movies do not get the story or the characters right.
Every year I reread A Christmas Carol. This year Jim Dale read it to me. He was spot on with his tone and cadence in the telling and true to the author's description of the voices of the different characters.
I think Charles Dickens would be very, very pleased.
With a wonderful story, compelling author and superb narrator, this is a perfect choice for renewing ones enthusiasm for life and goodwill toward others. It's also simply a great listen.
