Yoda

The narration is really bad.
Scrooge sounds like Yoda! it's making me put a few extra words so here you go but that's really all I had to say.

My review 2

What did you like best about A Christmas Carol? What did you like least?

The familiar story comes to life. The narrator has seems to have or simulate an English accent, which can be hard to understand, same as the book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Charles Dickens? Why or why not?

Yes. Bleak House.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes.

Do you think A Christmas Carol needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Terrible narration totally ruins the story

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Another narrator

Any additional comments?

An awful reading of a fantastic book. There's a reason why it was 39p, I guess.

No no no no no

I genuinely couldn't listen beyond the first chapter! For such a capitavating book, this is read like the person is desperate to leave the room and the sooner it is done the better. A classic spoiled.

not the best

it seemed to be read quickly or speeded up in some way. Didn't feel there was time to digest what was being said

Narrator is a joke

I would urge you to avoid this version.
Narrator is in such a rush and clearly didn't care about the listener.

Most enjoyable

Fills me with memories of my youth and Christmas time. Only wish the Scrooge did not sound like Yoda from Star Wars. Still most enjoyable
