A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

If you've seen Disney's A Christmas Carol then while listening to this your imagination will be working.
Loved hearing Tim Curry doing this and his delivery was excellent. Having only ever seen various versions of the movies, this one had my mind's eye working overtime with images from the Disney version, which seemed faithful to the book.
I'll be listening to this again on Christmas Eve and each year after because it is so enjoyable.

Remember some of the fringe characters you saw in Episode IV? This audio & book brings them to life! You find about so many from just before the movie started up to after the movie ended with so many fill ins for a lot of characters. If you are a fan, you'll love this!

Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars and before she reappeared as the mysterious Rebel operative Fulcrum in Rebels. Finally her story will begin to be told. Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa - and the Rebel Alliance.

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

I recommend this one to anyone who is a fan of Star Wars, Clone Wars animated series and Rebels animated series. It explains a lot about what happened after she left the Order and even explains about the crystals & the colors of the sabers.

What other book might you compare Star Wars: Ahsoka to and why?

Only other Audiobook I have really listen to was Jeff Dunham's

Which character – as performed by Ashley Eckstein – was your favorite?

Just hearing her in her Ahsoka mode was the best part of the listen,
