A masterful storyteller...Bob Neufeld's voice carrys the written word of Charles Dickens with the respect it deserves. And so much so visions of this tale are seen with no strain on the mind at all. Thank you Bob!

Great book, and this narrator, Bob Neufield, adds so much to it.

A brilliant masterpiece

(5 stars)

Well written by Sir Charles Dickens and well narrated by Bob Neufeld. A transformation story of an arrogant man who transforms into the most humble and benevolent man after the succession of visits by three spirits. Sir Charles Dickens was undoubtedly the greatest novelist of all times.

Truly a timeless story that nevers grows old. Bob Neufeld is the perfect reader for this story. He has become one of my favorite readers.

A lovely classic enjoyed at last

(3 stars)

I somehow managed to go up until now without ever having read the actual story, though I've seen countless adaptations of it and knew the narrative itself quite well. Having listened to Bob Neufeld and his wonderful audio narration of this classic Christmas story, I feel much better about knowing the original source material after all this time. The language was so lyrical at parts, and what felt repetitive early on soon felt almost like conversation in prose by the end and was much enjoyed. For such a short read, I do wish I'd taken the little time needed to read and enjoy this sooner.

Wonderful
