Wonderful Collection!

I enjoyed this so much that I've listened to it multiple times. I have a few favorites I listen to repeatedly. Great narration on a variety of stories.

Mostly good choices; a few weird ones

Despite the Cratchits’ Dinner (from A Christmas Carol) appearing twice in here — first in a tighter abridged form and, a few chapters later, with the Ghost of Christmas Present, um, present — and a few odd choices that seem included more for atmosphere than any literary merit, this is an enjoyable listen in the days leading to (and in my case, the days following) Christmas Day.
