あらすじ・解説

"A ghostly little book", said Charles Dickens of his famous Christmas novella, which first appeared in 1843. It has become the most famous classic Christmas story of all, with the miserly figure of Scrooge, the epitome of the callous employer; sadly crippled Tiny Tim; and the three spectres: the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Future.

This audiobook continues the award-winning series of Dickens' works read by leading English classical actor Anton Lesser.

What can you say about a classic

Everyone knows the tale, but not everyone has read the book. I didn't, so I'm happy to say the book is equal to any movie or visual depiction I have seen. Dickens writes in peerless prose and it's worth reading just for that. The only character truly fleshed out is Scrooge himself, but that is enough to carry the book because it is only novella length.

The narrator is fantastic, with a broad range of voices and English accents, and always the right tone and inflection. A must-read for any fan of Christmas and good writing.

Not just Dickens

We all know the narrative. No surprise there. Actually I don't even like the story, but had to read it again for a project I am working on. What made me LOVE that audible book is Anton Lesser's performance. A spectacular voice artist who beautifully serves Dickens's lush and witty language. His voice allows him to play all the parts, male, female, young, and old, with the same convincing ease. It may very well have been the first time I actually did enjoy the story.

Tradition with no frills

What made the experience of listening to A Christmas Carol [Naxos AudioBooks] (Unabridged) the most enjoyable?

Mr. Lesser is a servant to the story, his gift is to provide without being 'seen' to provide.

" What made the experience... the most enjoyable?"

Who wrote that?

Were these questions put together by someone from one of those off-shore call centres?

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Christmas Carol [Naxos AudioBooks] (Unabridged)?

The most gratifying aspect was - for Dickens anyway - the story's lightness of touch; in contrast to the schmaltz smeared on by several modern interpretations. This is specially true with reference to Tiny Tim.

Incidentally, surely it is either, 'the most' or, 'one of the more'? I mean, it is Eng. Lit. we are discussing after all...

Have you listened to any of Anton Lesser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes.
A Christmas Carol is, in truth, a short story and therefore to compare it with the longer - much longer - novels of Mr. D. is not to compare like with like. I have listened to several of this writer's novels narrated by Mr. Lesser and I can say with emphasis that the freshness of his multi- faceted interpretation is unobtrusive - yet never slackens.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

No

Anton Lesser’s calm narrator and grumpy Scrooge are the best out there. Back to the reading for me!

Dickens + Lesser = Magic

This is my second audiobook experienced with the unbeatable author-reader combination of Charles Dickens and Anton Lesser. Having just completed “The Old Curiosity Shop”, I was excited to learn just in time for Christmas that Mr. Lesser also narrated “A Christmas Carol”. I feel like I’ve never appreciated Dickens sufficiently before, and we definitely have a new Christmas tradition.

One of my favourite Christmas stories

I really enjoyed this complete rendition of A Christmas Carol.

Beautifully narrated. This actor has a voice very well suited to the work. His character reading is excellent, even the female characters. He brought the story to life.

Wonderfully Read

Enjoyed it enormously. Anton Lesser was wonderful, though it took me a while to stop visualising Jonny Vegas as Scrooge, as the voice he used for old Ebenezer sounded just like him.

A charming seasonal tale

A good, well delivered, unabridged narration of an accessible yet classic Christmas story with good staging.
