A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

As we come to the close of another year, never forget the true meaning of the holiday season: the uber wealthy getting scared into becoming compassionate & empathetic human beings.

Listening to 5 productions of this was an absolute delight. Curry brings the spookiness, Stewart a gravitas, Grant reminds me of listening to my grandfather read me stories, Dale is always a joy to listen to, & Burton is everything my reading 🌈heart needs. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

Andrew65 Absolutely brilliant 👏👏👏🙌 2mo

I read A Christmas Carol every year. This particular edition has the original illustrations; unfortunately, they are difficult to see in this ebook edition which isn‘t formatted that great. I also finished The Wishing Bridge and listened to Letters From Father Christmas, which is better as either a print book or an ebook because of the illustrations. I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday. Starting Death and Papa Noel.

Merry Christmas friends! This year I listened to this audio version of A Christmas Carol. I enjoyed it because I do love this story, but this won‘t become a favorite version. It sounds a bit odd to say, but I think I find Hugh Grant‘s voice too pleasant for most of this story. I like it better with a deeper or gruffer voice.

A quick read to see me into Christmas Morning, a re-read.

2. All I want for Christmas is a good time for a party with friends in the city.

Straight up, these three are my favorite versions of A Christmas Carol and I've consumed them all in the last 24 hours. Tim Curry's narration is unbeatable but Hugh Grant has his moments. And for pure, sweet nostalgia (with a dash of childhood terror, because my GOD, I should not have watched a cartoon character descend into a fiery grave at the age of 4!), I'm going for Mickey every time. Do you have a favorite Christmas Carol, fellow Littens?

Confession: I am not a fan of Dickens. Please don‘t hate me! But, he is just not for me.

However, after @MallenNC posted her read of A Christmas Carol with Hugh Grant as the narrator, I had to try it. I liked it! Grant does well reading the story. It was a nice listen while baking cookies.

MallenNC I‘m glad you liked it! Hugh is a great narrator. I love A Christmas Carol and A Tale of Two Cities (mostly bc my teacher was so great the year we read it) but a lot of his other work is not my favorite either. 2mo
Librarybelle @MallenNC I‘d like to try Bleak House at some point, since it‘s such a dark tale, but nothing else I‘ve tried by him has interested me. 2mo
MallenNC @Librarybelle I watched a tv version of that one but haven‘t read it maybe the audiobook version would work! 2mo

mom2bugnbee I do like A Christmas Carol (and many of the stage/movie adaptations), but beyond that I'm not a Dickens fan either. I've tried several. And I'm still scarred from Great Expectations in 9th grade 2mo

I really enjoyed Hugh Grant‘s narration of this Christmas classic. I listened to it for the first time last year and decided to do it again this year. I try to read or watch A Christmas Carol in some form every year.

OriginalCyn620 I love this version! Hugh did a great job. 2mo
MallenNC @OriginalCyn620 He really did! He has just the right amount of grumpiness in his voice for it. 2mo

2. All I want for Christmas is the Christmas gift of a man with the best taste in music. (I could get behind this gift. I do really enjoy my movie/tv score music!)

3. The tagged book- A Christmas Carol. Fond memories of reading it in class, while eating a candy cane.

We all know the story, it's been adapted for films and TV goodness knows how many times. Scrooge's name has become part of the language. And yet, even after having read it three or four times, I still found the story of Scrooge's reformation moving.

#BookedInTime @Cuilin @dabbe

bthegood No matter how many times I read it, or how many versions of the movie I see, I am also still moved by Scrooge's story - it is my favorite Christmas story.🎄 2mo

Got our first #teamread for #GhostsofXmas read. I‘d read it in high school so it‘s been a good 15 years or so. It was nice to revisit a classic, especially given how many versions there are of this story in movie form now. Is it my favorite? No, but it is a classic you have to appreciate and who doesn‘t love a bit of a redemption story.

🍿 What are your favourites? My top two are Muppet Christmas Carol (hence the tag), and Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas.

🍿 Do you have any seasonal traditions? For movies not really.

🍿 What films bring you comfort and joy? I have a huge soft spot for the incredibly twee Depression era films meant to cheer people up during bitter winters.
