I received this story as a free audiobook from Audible for being a member. Audible is awesome. Ok, so Charles Dickens is one of my favorite authors. I read A Christmas Carol almost every year around Christmas. This story, though narrated magnificently, was just alright. It was kind of boring.
It started off well describing wind swirling through a church at night in beautiful descriptive haunting language, but the story after that never grabbed my attention. It had great writing of course, but the story left me wanting. I would definitely listen to another audiobook narrated by Richard Armitage though, he was great.
If you want to give this New Years classic story a try you can get it for free as an eBook in several formats at Project Gutenberg.
