    On New Year’s Eve, Trotty becomes disheartened with life and feels that the working classes are wicked by nature after so many report of crime and mortality. His daughter, Meg, announces her plans to marry her fiancé on New Year's Day, something that Trotty is not particularly happy about. After meeting Will and his niece Lilian, the group return to Trotty's house. During the night, Trotty feels the church bells are calling him, so heads to the tower and climbs up to the bell chamber.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Chimes again? Why?

    Yes. Every new year, this story is a reminder of class struggle and the importance of being meek and big-hearted.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Trotty Veck, the protagonist, is my favorite character for his humanness, his mercy, and his inner conflict which propels the story.


    What about Gerald Dickens’s performance did you like?

    G. Dickens' performance was spot on, especially with the repetition he frequently employs to emphasize the rhythm of the piece.


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

    Trot into the new year with Dickens' classic story about faith, redemption, and love
