I just love the story of How the Grinch stole Christmas. I would read it to my grandchildren every Christmas. When I found this one on audible and found out Walter Matthau was the narrator I jumped for joy. Now my grandchildren love his voice reading the story. They said grandma "we love the way you read too " but the narrator sound more like the Grinch. I agree I like his voice too.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Seuss is silly, Matthau is comical, together they present a great Christmas story with lots of emotion. I can't think of any other person to read this story. Delightful!
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
Yes as it was a great story of my childhood.
and his heart grew 3 sizes... breaks my heart every time seeing him go back to good.
While babysitting my young nephews I realized I needed a hand keeping them close while cooking, but with no one available for backup, Audible jumped to mind. I purchased, downloaded and played in two minutes this book that I played over and over and finished dinner with everybody safe accounted for and happy!
Never too late.
A Christmas Carol
Walter Matthau makes the story sound much more like a conversation rather than the performance of a poem.
Yes and my daughter and I do play it over & over.. She is 5 and just loves it.
Favorite Christmas Story
A Christmas Carol because it is about a grumpy old grouch finally getting the Christmas Spirit.
Who better to play an old Grinch than a Grumpy Old Man?!
Definitely, especially in front of the Christmas tree with some hot cocoa and cookies.
The reader is almost as good as the original with Boris Karloff.
Cindy Lou Who
The character in his voice.
Old Favourite with wonderful message.
