    Charles Dickens’ Christmas classic—written in time for the 1843 holiday season—sold out its initial printing of 6,000 copies in one day. It remains Dickens’ most widely read and best-loved work, guaranteed to warm and uplift with the simplicity of its message and the depth of its honest truths. Bah! Humbug! It’s Christmas Eve and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is in a foul temper—good cheer and joyful spending turn his very insides to vinegar.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I love the story. I have print copies, kindle copies, a CD audiobook, and my audible audiobook, all unabridged versions. I also have a large collection of movies based on the book. How could you not like a skillfully written redemption from beyond all hope story?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Christmas Carol?

    I love the narrative about Scrooge's readiness to meet the second spirit.


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The way he gives voice to each character is wonderful. I especially like that when he reads the part about the blind man's dog he doesn't pant like the guy on my CD audiobook.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's a timeless classic so I don't think it needs a tag line.


    Any additional comments?

    I HATE the Jim Carey versions of my two favorite Christmas Classics. Somebody please, please stop him before he tries a remake of "It's A Wonderful Life" or "Miracle On 34th Street"

    Before he dies, the grandmaster of Cangzhen Temple instructs his five youngest pupils, each a master of a different fighting style, to search out the secrets of their pasts. Only then, he tells them, will they be able to avenge their fallen brothers and retrieve the temple's secret scrolls.

    Story
    Where does Tiger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is no Treasure Island but it's still good entertainment. It helps that my son is a beginning Kung fu student.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I assume that since the first book is basically the story according to the Tiger Monk that the following books will be basically the same story as seen from the other animal monks point of view. Of course that could be totally wrong too, but I'm fairly sure it will be entertaining.


    What about Kiki Barrera’s performance did you like?

    Who? Actually a very good job, the story was read so well that I didn't notice the narration... it was almost like reading it myself in that there didn't seem to another person involved until I read this question and thought back on it. Almost like listening to Jim Dale.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I didn't start out wanting to listen all the way through, I just did it. I was enjoying it and then I was at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm really glad that my Son talked me into getting this. It nearly makes up for what he did to the TV remote.
