    I always love dramatised versions of books and this was brilliantly done all the way down to the music, singing right through to the credits at the end. Love the cast! Brilliant!

    What did you like most about A Christmas Carol?

    The performances and characterisations were charming. I really enjoyed the narration and cannot believe that I'm in my 40s and hearing/reading this tale for the first time!


    Any additional comments?

    Very glad that I picked up this little book!

    "Too much 'adaptation' not enough Dickens"

    Don't get this if you love the original story - they have left out so much of the beautiful prose and instead filled it with a whole lot of irrelevant and boring dialogue... even the acting leaves a bit to be desired. So disappointing.

    Where does FREE: A Christmas Carol rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audio full cast drama is most enjoyable. The cast are perfect & the production just as it should be. It is very nice to receive a free present that one actually wants. A good choice Audible.uk.
