I'd absolutely recommend this to a friend.
We watch at least one or two of the various iterations of The Christmas Carol movies every year. It is a family favorite. And I have got to say that Tim Curry's performance of the book will be one I come back to again in the years to come. It will be the standard against which I compare all the others. Surely, no one could have done it better! Treat yourself to this most wonderful rendition.
I kept wanting more from the narrator. So many moments present themselves in this timeless narrative for pause, depth of emotion and recollection; perhaps even for a quake in the vocal timbre. Yet, expect none of these from droll Tim Curry. He is no George C. Scott or Patrick Stewart (the latter with a fine performance right here on Audible for your seasonal ornithological enjoyment). Perhaps I just am too enamored with the way I read it in my own mind, (and oft aloud with tears in my eyes), or perhaps I just expected too much of a Signature Performance on Audible...
Nah, he sucked. Humbug!
Thank you, Audible! For a few years now, you have been generously providing books like this to your members as holidays gifts . I can't express how perfect Tim Curry is to read a book like this and how grateful I am to have a copy. Thank you very much and thank Mr. Curry!
I normally only listen to non-fiction due to my personal Audible pet hate, which is any male narrator that uses the same voice for all women and children in a story. I made an exemption during the festive season and bought this classic work of fiction. This is because I somehow never caught any movie version of the story on the television this year. This story was extremely well delivered by Tim Curry and I'm very glad that I bought it. I will consider buying more fiction in the future and recommend this one to anyone who hasn't read the book in a while.
Love it I listen to this nightly love Tim Curry's voice one of my all time favorites would definitely recommend
