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!

awesome

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.

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.

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.

Best story

There is probably a reason this book has not been out of print since being written in 1843...
