Narrator Kevin Theis inhabits Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley in this sublime adaptation of Dickens's Christmas classic. Listeners will join the greedy, old miser when he is visited by the ghost of his deceased business partner, Marley, on Christmas Eve. Theis's dialogue between the pair flawlessly conveys the reluctant Scrooge and the desperate Marley, who hopes to save his friend from a dreadful fate similar to his own. Superlative sound effects such as rattling chains and chiming clocks, along with alluring music, add to the frightening but also joyous atmosphere, and blend perfectly with the vibrant text. The alteration of Scrooge's voice seamlessly conveys changes in him as Marley's message is painstakingly received. The giddy--but believable--laugh at the conclusion nearly brings tears! S.G.B.
