I don't recall downloading this?

I don't know how to get this off my audible library as I've never listened to it nor did I want to get this and don't know how it got there. :/

Taken by mistake

Taken by mistake... But a good classic ! Dickens being Dickens. Strange to read three month after Christmas thought.

Beautifully done!

I loved everything about this production from the narrator, voice actors, sound effects, to the story itself. All of it drew me in and kept me there. I enjoyed it so much I had to listen again when it ended. For me this was a great introduction to audible. Beautifully done. 5 stars!

Enjoyed immensely!

I've always wanted to read 'A Christmas Carol' but never found the time.
When I saw this on Audible I knew this would solve that problem!

The actors did an amazing job, the story is classic, and am so glad I found this!

I think this might be a new tradition for me to listen to every year at Christmas!

Superb - what a Christmas Gift!

I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this production. Performances were top notch and it was equal to the Alistair Sims 1951 classic film. To be listened to annually in the future.

Classic story, one that hopefully every generation can at least enjoy once in its original form. Timless & still enjoyable
