Listening to the audiobook of this classic tale superbly narrated by Tim Curry was a joy. It rounded off this year's Christmas celebration very nicely and made the six hour drive home go so much faster than it usually does. Drama, sentimentality, humour and pathos: this story has it all. A great antidote for seasonal excess and seasonal cynicism, it's impossible not to feel uplifted by Ebenezer Scrooge's redemption. A lovely listening experience.
