Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dickens’ four Christmas-themed novellas display the author’s strengths and weaknesses; David Timson enhances the strengths and strengthens the weaknesses, such as sentimentality and overplayed emotions. When Dickens is excessive, Timson is too, but he manages to carry it off. He alone is an entire cast…He not only provides varied and excellent voices, but he also matches voice to character with intelligence and discernment, always seeming to provide the perfect voice for any particular character. His narration is consistently genial and smart but varies sensitively with the text—sober, amused, merry. These minor works won’t please everyone, but those who appreciate them may find listening to Timson more entertaining than reading. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
