“Every idiot who goes about with ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding,” says Scrooge. Mean old Scrooge despises Christmas, until Christmas Eve, when a haunted voice from the past changes his life––overnight!

Many know the story, but few have experienced the marvel of the book. If you are one who has never read this family classic, this is the time to do so. Listen to our unabridged recording and make this a truly Charles Dickens Christmas. And, “God bless us, everyone!”

Quotes & Awards

  • “A tale to make the reader laugh and cry—to open his hands, and open his heart to charity even toward the uncharitable...a dainty dish to set before a King.”


  • “If Christmas, with its ancient and hospitable customs, its social and charitable observances, were ever in danger of decay, this is the book that would give them a new lease. The very name of the author predisposes one to the kindlier feelings.”

    Thomas Hood, poet

  • “There can never be too many audio editions of certain novels, and this popular, much-loved perennial attests to that…This audiobook distinguishes itself by offering the unabridged novel rather than a dramatic made-for-radio adaptation or a selection of excerpts. Still short and sweet, with a great deal more Dickensian tongue-in-cheek humor than comes across in movie versions, this audiobook is a treat. In a written introduction to his novel, Dickens makes it clear that he intended his tale to be uplifting rather than scary. Prebble’s multi-voiced narration reflects the author’s purpose. His ghosts sound more instructive than haunting. His Scrooge is more tentative than terrified. But your favorite scenes will still grab you, and Scrooge’s transition from a miserable skinflint to a lighthearted lover of life is portrayed convincingly.”


  • “It is the detail and the vigor of Charles Dickens’s writing that brings Scrooge to life…one of the most miraculous of all Dickens’s creations—a character one never tires of who, in this short but potent story, never outstays his welcome.”

    Telegraph (London)

    " I have never read the book, but obviously I knew the story. Very well written, great language, and good life lessons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Patrick Gelsana | 2/9/2014

    " A Christmas Carol taught me to never act forgetful, ignorant, grumpy, and negative during the month of December when Christmas is just ahead and it commemorates the day of fun, laughter, happiness, and giving/showing love to the people you care about especially when it concerns your family and your friends. It's a perfect book to read during the month of December and surely, you will learn something from it whether good or bad. :) "

    " I read this so long ago, it's probably due another look. I always enjoy Dickens, but I've read, seen and heard so many different adaptations of "A Christmas Carol" that I can't really remember how much I enjoyed this particular one. "
