Beautiful story of faith, charity and forgiveness.

What made the experience of listening to A Christmas Carol (Trout Lake Media Edition 1) the most enjoyable?

If ever there was a doubt about Charles Dickens' place in the literary world, this story will put it to rest. What a wonderful story. Children of all ages and creeds must either read this or have it read to them.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Christmas Carol (Trout Lake Media Edition 1)?

How Scrooge's nephew would not allow Scrooge to impact his Christmas spirit.

An excellent reader and allows you to imagine the story as Mr. Dickens would have intended.

My review 2

What did you like best about A Christmas Carol? What did you like least?

The familiar story comes to life. The narrator has seems to have or simulate an English accent, which can be hard to understand, same as the book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Charles Dickens? Why or why not?

Yes. Bleak House.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes.

Do you think A Christmas Carol needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Terrible narration totally ruins the story

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Another narrator

Any additional comments?

An awful reading of a fantastic book. There's a reason why it was 39p, I guess.

No no no no no

I genuinely couldn't listen beyond the first chapter! For such a capitavating book, this is read like the person is desperate to leave the room and the sooner it is done the better. A classic spoiled.

Most enjoyable

Fills me with memories of my youth and Christmas time. Only wish the Scrooge did not sound like Yoda from Star Wars. Still most enjoyable
