Publisher's Summary

This is a full-cast recording of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday favorite A Christmas Carol, the tale of miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge.

It is Christmas Eve, and the air outside is as cold as Scrooge’s heart. Come nightfall, Scrooge receives three visitors: the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Each spirit takes him on a hair-raising journey through time, yielding glimpses of Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit—and even Scrooge’s painfully hopeful younger self. Will Scrooge’s heart be opened? Can he escape his cursed fate?

Wonderfully Classic

A wonderful and classic story told in an old English fashion. True to the original in spoken word and spirit.

A Christmas Classic

Would you consider the audio edition of A Christmas Carol (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

YES! I cannot say this emphatically enough. It was the perfect Christmas eve listen as it only runs about an hour long and with the sound effects completely transports the listener to the streets of 19th century England.

Excellent performance - absorbs one into a classic

We've enjoyed this version many times. I looked, but haven't found a better overall version. Not even the version with a very talented actor.

Energetic audio play

This is a full-cast audio play with music and sound effects. It's a deft adaptation of Dickens' story, well-acted, and with one of the scariest Marleys around. For me, it falls just short of five stars because of the mix of American and British accents. By itself that wouldn't be a problem, but in a couple of cases a character will drift unsteadily between the two. It is, however, a lively and mostly satisfying production that captures a surprising amount of the detail of the original.

Dick van Dyke does Dickens

Dreadful faux English accents, cries of "Happy New Years" and a terrible moment, worse by far than any of the ghosts, when Tiny Tim is sent, with Martha, to "go and 'wash up' before lunch".
Unless you seek a festive cringe, look elsewhere for your Dickens Christmas fix.
