#WinterGames #TeamFestivus. I forgot to post these recent finishes. Tim Curry‘s reading of A Christmas Carol wasn‘t bad but I bet there is better out there. I enjoyed reading the Scrooge story from Jacob‘s point of view. The Holiday is always a favorite. 46 pts.

Kdgordon88 @wanderinglynn. Looks like this post got lost in the shuffle. Don‘t know how you are keeping up with all this! 3d
wanderinglynn I‘m not sure I am keeping up with it! 😂😂😂 Thanks for poking me on this one. 😀 3d
Kdgordon88 @wanderinglynn. You need to deduct 40 points I posted about the same books twice 🤦🏽‍♀️ I am so sorry! 5h
wanderinglynn No worries! It‘s been a crazy month! 😉 2h

⭐⭐⭐⭐
Very much like A Christmas Carol told by Marley's point of view. I will read this again! I don't want to give too much away before our discussion, but definitely read, or l listen to it. The audio was superb.

This is not a bad book but there is very little to distinguish itself from the original.🎄

This is the story of Jacob T. Marley and Ebenezer Scrooge, their lives before what we read about them in A Christmas Carol.

This was just a wonderful as I remembered. If you‘re a fan of Dickens Christmas Carol, I would highly recommend this one. And I absolutely recommend the audiobook version, Simon Vance is a fantastic narrator! ❤️🎄❤️🎄❤️🎄❤️

This is A Christmas Carol told in the style of Dickens and from the perspective of Jacob Marley. At first, I was a little bored, but once Jacob dies and meets the ghosts, the story picked up and I ended up enjoying it.

Thought I‘d check this out for a holiday read. Last year, I read Mr. Dickens and His Carol.

A Christmas Carol had been re-done and retold so many times - and while I love the story, I admit that I didn‘t expect this to be half as fun or as genuinely fresh as it is!! A great holiday listen that goes by so fast you will be ready to listen again while #Audiocoloring or not!! Still set in #London this shows the familiar story from the titular character‘s POV! #DickensianDecember @jenniferw88

What a wonderful Christmas treat this audiobook was! Done very much in the style of Dickens‘ original Christmas Carol, this was the story from Jacob Marleys point of view. With glimpses into his life before his death, and his thoughts and actions afterward. As with A Christmas Carol, this is a story of hope, and redemption, and the human spirits boundless capacity for love. I wonder what Mr. Dickens would think of it, but I believe he‘d approve.❤️

This was absolutely delightful. A Christmas Carol told from the viewpoint of Marley. I listened on audio and loved Simon Vance as the narrator! Highly recommend if you are looking for a quick read to get into the holiday spirit.
