Quotes & Awards

  • “No sound effects, no gimmicks, just one of the the great voices of the contemporary classical stage creating as vivid a cast of characters as Dickens imagines. The Royal Shakespeare Company veteran…doesn’t so much read the story as inhabit it with infectious delight.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Reciting the litany of Scrooge’s scrooginess, Stewart relishes the emotional gamut of meanness…Humbug seldom sounds so good.”

    Newsweek

  • “A holiday celebration can no longer be considered complete without a good listen to Patrick Stewart’s audio performance of Dickens’ Christmas classic. You get here what you won’t get anywhere else: each word of Dickens’ remarkable narrative rendered with mesmerizing skill by Stewart…The experience offered by Dickens and Stewart is so fresh, so rich, so detailed, and so heartfelt, that new traditions will need to be developed: put another log on the fire, gather round the family stereo. This is storytelling at its pure, simple, powerful best.”

    AudioFile

  • “Stewart is in rare form, using his considerable range of voices to play all roles, from the Ghost of Christmas past to Tiny Tim…This rendition of Dickens’ classic will get you in a Yuletide mood.”
