Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, and Ebenezer Scrooge come to marvelous life in Patrick Stewart's critically-acclaimed solo interpretation of A Christmas Carol. The star of X-Men and The Royal Shakespeare Company, Stewart has performed his one-man stage production of this holiday classic to sell-out audiences.

What did you love best about A Christmas Carol [Simon & Schuster Version]?

The performance paints a very accurate picture of victorian England, Stewarts performance really puts you into the action, and draws you into the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Since Patrick Stewart treats this as a one man show, he is the only character

Have you listened to any of Patrick Stewart???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I am a big fan of Stewart, including his Star Trek performances, and as Captain Ahab in Moby Dick.

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

Yes, but it can be broken up into various sittings.

Any additional comments?

Well worth the price, and an exceptional recording.
