Hi.This is my first Audible reveiw.I felt the need to write a review on this fabulous recording.Reading the previous reviews rightfully negative about the abysmal sound quality of this program when it was a 2,I'm ecstatic to be the first person to review it now that it is rightfully been presented in the far superior 4 format.This program now sounds as good as anything I've heard on Audible.I only hope that some if not all of the previous reviewers have already or will retry this program.It truly is one of the greatest audiobooks ever made.Mr.Tull's energy and talent for humour are second to none.I agree that the story only really kicks into gear with appearence of Samival Veller but it never waivers after that and neither does the good Mr. Tull.The three Christmas chapters are a particular joy(I listen to them every year around this time).Sorry for the lengthy review but I truly love this book and especially this recording of it.
This is one of my favorite audiobooks to listen to at Christmas Time( along with Daniel Massey's reading of A Christmas Carol-sadly not yet available on Audible- Tolkien's The Father Christmas Letters read by Sir Derek Jacobi and The Christmas chapters from The Pickwick Papers as read by Patrick Tull which are available on Audible)and is actually the unabridged reading of Dicken's The Chimes.Mr.Palmer does a wonderful job of breathing life into all of the characters especially Trotty Veck .The Chimes is Dicken's second Christmas Book after A Christmas Carol and most people who enjoyed one will enjoy the other.
