    Story
    "A true classic treated perfectly"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare A Christmas Carol: The Unabridged Classic Narrated by Chandler Craig to and why?

    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.


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

    An obviously gifted character actor with vocal mastery, Mr. Craig peoples this wonderful story with a marvelous cast of characters perfectly interpreted.


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

    A Christmas Carol - as it was meant to be told!


    Any additional comments?

    This makes my Christmas!

    "Perfect for the Christmas season!"
    What did you love best about A Christmas Carol: The Unabridged Classic Narrated by Chandler Craig?

    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!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Scrooge's nephew. He never gives up on his uncle, and always trusts in Scrooge's hidden goodness.


    Any additional comments?

    You won't be disappointed with this lovely narration of a classic Christmas tale!

    "A Christmas Carol"

    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.

    "Is the Book Better than the Movies?"

    I have loved the video and stage presentations of a Christmas Carol, but I had never read the book. So I decided this season I would pay a credit and listen. I am very glad that I did.

    There are so many different versions of A Christmas Carol out there. I compared this listen to my wife's favorite rendition of the story: Scrooge 1970 with Albert Finney. This is a musical and quite delightful. I found there was very little difference between the book and the movie. Some elements are expanded in the movie, and some are only barely touched upon.

    When you watch Scrooge you are getting a fair retelling of Dickens story.

    What you won't get by watching A Christmas Carol in play or movie form is the marvelous use of language by Dickens. It is a work of art beyond story. Often poetry lacks the feeling of Dickens' prose. If you love the art of a great wordsmith/poet in prose form I highly recommend reading or listening to this book.

    There are also many Christmas Carol audiobooks available on Audible. I have not listened to them and cannot compare this one against them. Chandler Craig did a great job with the narration, and he allowed the spectacular prose of Dickens flow without getting in its way.


    I consider this a great listen and will be getting a hardback copy of the book as well.

    God bless us, every one!

    "Merry Christmas, everyone!"

    Lived up to my very picky expectations, as this story is very dear to me. This performance would meet with the approval of even Charles Dickens, I'm certain.

    "Well done!!"

    I just began listening to books on audio. I have a commute that takes me over an hour to get to my job one way. Constantly I am looking for podcasts and books of enjoyment to educate and delight myself on this long journey. This book not only got me into the Christmas spirit because of how great the story is but the sounds of the characters made me feel part of the story. Great reading of a great story!
