Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, and Ebenezer Scrooge come to marvelous life in Patrick Stewart's critically-acclaimed solo interpretation of A Christmas Carol.
The star of X-Men and The Royal Shakespeare Company, Stewart has performed his one-man stage production of this holiday classic to sell-out audiences. Now, in this Grammy-nominated studio recording of the dazzling achievement that has thrilled audiences in New York and Los Angeles, Stewart invites listeners to rediscover the timeless story at its source: Dickens' own words, presented in a soaring, virtuoso solo performance in which Stewart plays all parts.

Short but Sweet
I love Patrick Stewart's narration but was frustrated that this is an abridged version and only covers about half the book. That said all the well known parts of the story are included and his dramatisation really brings the story and characters to life. If you are not fussed about hearing the whole book this is a good version, well read.
Just for clarification
The review on 13/11/12 is incorrect about the length of the book. There are 2 tracks. Part 1 is 48:23 long, Part 2 is 59:06 long. Just in case this was putting anyone off.
A Christmas Carol
The reader is very good however it disappoints me that not all of the text from the original book is read, a real shame
