Yes! There are few better stories in English literature, and the opportunity to hear the entire story as originally written without edits, embellishments, or other "enhancements" is priceless.
I haven't listened to many audio books, but grew up on CBS Radio MysteryTheatre. I lived for each new episode. The power of a skilled actor to keep us enthralled with only their voice is a lost art. Mr. Craig goes far in reviving and keeping that art alive.
An obviously gifted character actor with vocal mastery, Mr. Craig peoples this wonderful story with a marvelous cast of characters perfectly interpreted.
A Christmas Carol - as it was meant to be told!
This makes my Christmas!
The narrator takes you into the world of Dickens and Scrooge with his perfect intonation and interpretation. The reader's mind can visualize the characters and "see" the story play out through through the richness of the narrator's voice...an absolute delight to listen to!
I love Scrooge's nephew. He never gives up on his uncle, and always trusts in Scrooge's hidden goodness.
You won't be disappointed with this lovely narration of a classic Christmas tale!
I have seen many of the movies that represent this story for many years: however, I have never read or listened to the actual story. I highly recommend people read or listen to it. It is what Christmas is all about.
Scrooge, to see the evolution of his character.
The power and emotion in his voice
The Essence of Christmas
Yes, I would listen to A Christmas Carol: The Unabridged Classic narrated by Charles Craig. I was not familiar with Craig save the experience of now having listened to this reading, but I was pleased with his performance and the quality of the production. I suspect this will be an enjoyable Seasonal listen from now until the end of my days.
No extreme reaction, but pleased with the listen. A comfortable and entertaining listen.
Tell us about yourself! Lifelong reader and passionate pursuer of knowledge. I love Audible because I never have to stop reading.
The performance was superb, and the story is like the finest wine....better and better with time. It reminds me of the importance of an examination of conscience...are we doing what we are to do?
The perfect classic tale to listen to this holiday season. Never bored with Scrooge's about face no matter how often I have read it. Listening is a treat.
so happy I got the unabridged version so I wouldn't miss a single details of Charles Dickens expressionism and how he vividly paints the surroundings in his telling making it come to life as though your are walking through the streets with scrooge an onlooker standing silently, and how through the narrotors voice each character comes to life so much in a way u cant help bur feel li u know themthe story is very deep moving profoundly powerful in all its universal themes despite its antiquity how they still apply to our day and age and the truth that surrounds humanity from rich to poor. it's truly a masterpiece of Dickens that should always be retold as he says he doesn't mean to lay it to rest so we can remember the importance of all the moral humanity it resembles so let haunt the holidays it's a classic that is undying as the ghosts that tells it N takes scrooge by the hand through all the happiest to saddest moments of his life to remind him of our true life's obligations with our fellow brothers and man to be tolerable compassionate even when life gives us every reason not to it teaches one to love intensely and vastly more than ones self and that we are all in it together no matter which role we take or choses us we chose how we react to everything our destiny and outcome for our greater good. I find this classic to be a heart wrenching timeless classic that deserve without an inexplicable doubt to be maintained and treasured always.
