Editorial Reviews

Actor David Ian Davies gives a riveting performance of Victorian novelist Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. His distinguished voice is the perfect complement to the classic text. One Christmas Eve, the miserable and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, as well as the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. He views scenes from his own past, present, and future, and in doing so, begins to understand the error of his ways.

Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas Eve at 221-B as Doctor Watson reads A Christmas Carol to his friend, and to us! In this all new, full-length, and unabridged One Voice Recordings production, listeners will enjoy his lusty-yet-reverent telling of Ebenezer Scrooge's moral redemption and return to the joyful possibilities within the human race.

A classic with fine narration

You know the story, but have you read Dicken's classic words? Fine narration of a story that, to my mind, needs to be heard in the King's English.

Scrooge Meets Holmes??

Few things ring in the holidays more warmly than A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens; indeed, many hold reading it with all the family circled round as a cherished tradition, without which the holiday would not feel complete.

'God bless us, every one!'

The listener will be blessed indeed, as this reading is a double delight : it is read to yet another literary favourite, Sherlock Holmes, by his good friend Dr John Watson upon Christmas Eve! This masterfully imaginative interpretation is read by the incomparable David Ian Davies, whose grasp and understanding of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works is highly respected amongst Sherlockians worldwide; deservedly so. In this age of so many things being condensed and read speedily, it is lovely to hear this unabridged version coupled with Holmes and Watson. Mr Davies delivers all personas in the tale with style, flair, zest and great care to his craft. Destined to be a classic, this is a tasty holiday treat for all; highly recommended.

Very disappointing

I was really looking forward to this and thought I had chosen my reader carefully. I was disappointed however by the very jarring accents and silly voices used to denote differing characters. Must try to find a better reader for this Christmas classic.
