Read by John Van Stan

(4.4 stars; 7 reviews)

Here are some classic, short Christmas stories from Charles Dickens, who, one may easily argue, was the greatest Christmas storyteller to date. In this season, may we do as Dickens' asked: "Welcome, everything! Welcome, alike what has been, and what never was, and what we hope may be, to your shelter underneath the holly, to your places round the Christmas fire, where what is sits open-hearted!" Happy Holidays! - Summary by jvanstan (2 hr 37 min)

At 48, today was the first time that I knew these tales even existed! Lovely stories and the reader was quite good too. It is the 18th of January 2022, from Ireland xx.

Don't expect much joy !

Can't review any better than David Wales has for his version. Typical Dickens, sombre and perceptive. Well read
