A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, narrated by Simon Prebble
Published in audio by Blackstone Audio
Yeah, I’m guessing most of you actually already know the basic idea behind A Christmas Carol.
Thoughts on the story:
I don’t know you guys, I mean, whoa, Dickens sure isn’t subtle about his MORAL. But on the other hand, even in the most fun adaptations, A Christmas Carol has a very obvious MORAL, so I was less bothered than I might otherwise have been, solely because I 100% expected it. That being said, I’m not sure I actually particularly enjoyed A Christmas Carol, I think it is much more entertaining with Muppets or animated Disney characters.
Thoughts on the audio production:
Simon Prebble is great, he gives a solid performance, and I have no qualms about recommending him.
If you’re in the mood for A Christmas Carol, you could do much worse than this version, I think overall it is a bit easier to take in audio than in print.
If you want to hear more of my thoughts about A Christmas Carol, they were the subject of the latest What’s Old is New Classics Rip.
