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.
Classic story, one that hopefully every generation can at least enjoy once in its original form. Timless & still enjoyable
"A Christmas classic"
Excellent quality production. The well known story was brought to life by these talented narrators. Lovely to listen too.
"THANK YOU 🎄🤶🏻🎄& Merry Christmas"
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.

This is a very enjoyable version of a true classic, made all the better by the various voice actors who bring the tale to life and make you want to continue to listen. 5/5
