Quotes

  • “A tale to make the reader laugh and cry—to open his hands, and open his heart to charity even toward the uncharitable.”

    - The Athenaeum
  • “Narrator Kevin Theis inhabits Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley in this sublime adaptation of Dickens’s Christmas classic. Listeners will join the greedy, old miser when he is visited by the ghost of his deceased business partner, Marley, on Christmas Eve. Theis’s dialogue between the pair flawlessly conveys the reluctant Scrooge and the desperate Marley, who hopes to save his friend from a dreadful fate similar to his own. Superlative sound effects such as rattling chains and chiming clocks, along with alluring music, add to the frightening but also joyous atmosphere, and blend perfectly with the vibrant text…The giddy—but believable—laugh at the conclusion nearly brings tears! Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

About the Author

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
