Charles Dickens and his Xmas Carol. So often on television I thought this book wasn't worth it. So I got it only because it was for free.
But what a beautiful tale it is, for the poetical way it is written. You can feel the harsh and icy scrooge in the beginning and the unaccustomed so awkward happy scrooge in the end through each sentence.
And naturally the delivery of Tim Burton adds a major dimension. Brilliant!
Although we all know the story, this was a great listen. I listened to it on my long drive to meet family for Christmas - a perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit. Charles Dickens had an amazing sense of humor too, something of a fun surprise. Enjoy!

Regardless of age, A Christmas Carol is a Christmas classic that can, and should, be enjoyed every holiday season. This year I relaxed by listening to Tim Curry's narration while sipping hot chocolate by the fire. What a pleasure.
Thanks, Audible, for this wonderful present. I had great fun listening to Tim Curry render this wonderful classic. It certainly put me in the "Christmas Spirit." I appreciated this lovely gift.
