Legendary author Neil Gaiman has delighted readers for decades with his stories blending mythology, magic, horror, and history. The New York Public Library podcast got Neil Gaiman to read the holiday classic A Christmas Carol. It’s a fantastic performance of this wonderful Dickens story.
You can listen to it below. Turn the lights off and the Christmas tree on, so you can get the last few precious moments of the holiday season before New Years hits.
Now if you like that performance, we have more Christmas treats from Neil Gaiman.
