All of the remembered and cherished pleasures of A CHRISTMAS CAROL are present in this wonderful reading by John Lee. His warm voice with its hint of Scottish accent is reminiscent of winter nights and crackling fires and good stories told aloud. There are none of the typical sound effects or musical interludes in this version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, and it doesn't need them. The story and the fine narrator suffice. Lee reads clearly and emotively, encouraging the listener to relish the poetry of Dickens's language, and to delight in the drama and humor of the tale. Give this to yourself, then add to the pleasure by sharing it with the entire family. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
