THE PICKWICK PAPERS
by Charles Dickens; readings by Sir Lewis Casson & Boris Karloff
MR. PICKWICK'S CHRISTMAS read by Sir Lewis Casson
THE STORY OF THE GOBLINS WHO STOLE A SEXTON read by Boris Karloff
Editor's note: I believe that these two stories were the basis for Dickens' later work "A Christmas Carol" but I could be mistaken. I don't know if it's just the strong reading of Karloff on SIDE but SIDE A was pretty yawn-worthy. I'm always happy to find something from Caedmon Records and someday I'll own them all and you and the world!
