A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
‘If I had my way, every idiot who goes around with Merry Christmas on his lips, would be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. Merry Christmas? Bah humbug!’
Introduction and Afterword by Joe Wheeler
To bitter, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, Christmas is just another day. But all that changes when the ghost of his long-dead business partner appears, warning Scrooge to change his ways before it’s too late.
Part of the Focus on the Family Great Stories collection, this edition features an in-depth introduction and discussion questions by Joe Wheeler to provide greater understanding for today’s reader. “A Christmas Carol” captures the heart of the holidays like no other novel.
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”
What a lovely Christmas read!!!
I listened to the audio book. It was great. Recently I have grown in fond of books by Charles Dickens. I am studying Great Expectations for my literature class, and I saw so many book bloggers reading this book. So, I thought that I should give it a try. I purchased the audio book, which is amazing.
The story brings out the true spirit of Christmas. Christmas is all about love, share and care. Everybody love to celebrate this special day, the day Jesus Christ was born, with their family and loved once. I really liked the character of Scrooge, and how he changed after meeting the three spirits of past, present and future. The other thing I loved about the story was, the descriptive language. Wow!! I loved how everything (specially Food!!) was described in the story. This short read definitely boosts up your holiday spirit.
Gives out a message to the readers about spending a meaningful Christmas. A wonderful read.
“God bless us, every one!”
