Just as so many do, I love this story. I've seen so many adaptations of it, but never actually read the book. So when I found this unabridged audio, I had to hear it.

I am playing Bob Crachit locally this season for the 3rd year in a row. Having now heard the whole tale completely (with all the scenes and details which never make it to the films), in Dickens' wonderful prose, I understand him even better than before. I'm sure it will inform my performance.

This is very well done and I highly recommend it.

On the surface, the court-appointed case that lands on young Dean Abernathy's desk is a biggie; he is slated to defend a homeless man accused of the felony murder of the popular black New York City Police commissioner during an early-morning mugging attempt. But at second look, the case promises to be a routine conviction. The evidence is overwhelming.

Peter Berkrot's performance of "Felony Murder" was excellent! His characters, voices and accents were just right and kept things interesting with out being cliche, too heavy, or over-baked. This is the first of Mr. Berkrot's narrations that I've had the pleasure of listening to, and it will not be my last. I'll be seeking out his others.

The story itself was good and compelling enough to keep me coming back. There is a plot hole or two and some devices used by the author were, I felt, over used, but it was still a fun story to enjoy.
