    An extract from the audiobook edition of Charles Dicken's festive classic, A Chistmas Carol, read by actor Geoffrey Palmer.

    About the book:
    'Merry Christmas! ... every idiot who goes along with "Merry Christmas" ... should be boiled in his own pudding'

    Ebenzer Scrooge, a miserly businessman, is visited on Christmas Eve by the ghostly apparition of Marley, his former business partner, returned from the grave dragging a long and heavy chain representing his many sins. Marley warns Scrooge that the same fate may befall him, and sends the three spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. Dickens's story has proved one of his most popular works and has had an enduring influence on the way we think about the traditions of Christmas.
