In the sequel to Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge dies just days before Christmas. Tiny Tim, now a young man who lost his sweetheart love, Becky, battles anger and lost faith with this new loss. Scrooge's ghost returns to teach Tim a much needed lesson about faith... and the real meaning of Christmas!
Tiny Tim and the Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge: The Sequel to A Christmas Carol written by Norman Whaler. The narration is provided by Naomi Frederick and Naomi Frederick. The running time is 1 hour and 54 minutes. In that short time, the listener gets to reconnect with the beloved character from the original Charles Dickens Tales later in life.
The Cratchit family grew close to Ebenezer Scrooge after his change of heart in the original story and the father became a partner in the firm. Young Tiny Tim grew up and joined then the firm. He was close to Mr. Scrooge who became a mentor. Ebenezer Scrooge has died at the start of the story 7 days before Christmas. Along with the loss of another person close to Tiny Tim, who is now in a very dark, sad, and angry place in his life. This time it is Ebenezer Scrooge who is paying a visit to his young friend in his hour of need.
The story does a great job of holding the listener’s attention. The fact that it is a sequel to the original in its themes and spirit really help engage the listener. The dual narration also is a factor that draws the attention of the audience deeper into the story. Some people may be turned off by the message of faith that Tiny Tim receives. This is something people will either like or they will not. It is as always in individual choice but something that can be ignored when considering the overall storyline.
The narration for this audiobook is provided by Naomi Frederick and Gordon Griffin. This was the first vocal performance that I have heard from these narrators. I truly enjoyed their combined effort on this audiobook. They really brought these characters to life and made this a fantastic listening experience. The publisher for this audiobook is Beneath Another Sky Books. The production value is of the highest quality. There were not any detectable flaws that I was able to hear during the entire performance. I did not hear any loops, breaks, or buzzing. The production was crisp and clear. Beneath Another Sky Books delivered an excellent audiobook.
