Normally, I don't like abridged audiobooks. I make an exception for this one, however. A Christmas Carol is one of Patrick Stewart's favorite stories and it really shows. Although this edition does cut out some of Dickens own commentary and small bits of the story, it does not cut out anything critical and stays 100% true to the original. Patrick Stewart's narration is absolutely masterful. He does a wonderful job of capturing the essence of each character.
If you only listen to one version of this story for the holidays, make it this one. You won't regret it.
If you listen to two versions (as I usually end up doing), pick this one up and the unabridged version by Jim Dale.
