Description

Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit and Ebenezer Scrooge come to marvelous life in Patrick Stewart's critically-acclaimed solo interpretation of A Christmas Carol. The star of X-Men and The Royal Shakespeare Company, Stewart has performed his one-man stage production of this holiday classic to sell-out audiences. Now, in this Grammy nominated studio recording of the dazzling achievement that has thrilled audiences in New York and Los Angeles, Stewart invites listeners to rediscover the timeless story at its source: Dickens' own words, presented in a soaring, virtuoso solo performance in which Stewart plays all parts.

About the author

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced ‘Oliver Twist’, the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870, he was buried in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.

    I have always enjoyed Sir Patrick Stewart's portrayal of Scrooge on tv and have watched it almost every year. That's why I was eager to listen to an audio rendition. I was overjoyed! What a great performance. His voice and characterizations were as awesome as I envisioned they would be. Listening to this particular performance of A Christmas Carol may become a new Christmas tradition for me. Fantastic!

    I was excited to find Patrick Steward version but unfortunately it’s abridged. This means it cuts out my favourite scene of the wonderful description of the Christmas street and food in n the windows! Such a shame!

    This is the only work by Charles Dickens I enjoy and Patrick Stewart reading it gave such liveliness
  • (4/5)
    A Christmas Carol will always be one of the most magical Christmas stories out there, and is a heartwarming tale of redemption. Patrick Stewart’s performance is phenomenal. You can tell he had a great time recording this.

    My only complaint is that this is abridged. I hate abridged audiobooks, but I still had to listen to this because of my love for Stewart. If you are familiar with the story (even just from movies) you will find familiar scenes to be lacking certain famous quotes, and at times the dialogue moves a little too quickly.

    With that being said , it is a must-listen and is definitely a great choice if you want a quick story to get you in the Christmas spirit.
