"Robert Whitfield's narration allows listeners to recognize how much Dickens wrote for the ear. Whitfield reads these stories like he is telling them beside a winter fire." No writer is more identified with the modern idea of Christmas than Charles Dickens. In some ways, Dickens helped define the holiday that we now celebrate by immortalizing it as a time of warmth and sharing with an emphasis on family and friends.

An adult’s look back on his childhood Christmas memories – unfortunately it did not evoke any magic for me due to the lack of similarity between the Dickensonian child’s toys, treats, and pleasures, and those of our own childhood. Then Dickens launches into a series of fireside tales and ghost stories, which, while interesting, had no Christmas theme – except for the fact that it was a Christmas Tradition in Dickensonian Times to tell tales of any sort around the fire… it is no longer. I LOVE Dickens and his writing, but at this most precious time of year, his book fell short for me; without evoking the Christmas Spirit.
