I think I like the general story more than I enjoyed the book. The language tripped me up and had a difficult time keeping me interested. It might because I've heard the story so many times but its still an amazing story! So story = 5 stars, Book = 3 Stars

Seen every version of the movie possible, but i had never read the book before-- i loved it. Rich in detail and language and setting-- I now have some idea what it felt like to be in one of those crooked streets in London in 1843-- the smells and the dirt and soot and the closeness-- to put a hand out the window and almost touch the dirty window next door...The special foods and the games and the feel of it. i loved it and i am amazed at how true so many of the movies remained to the book. Dickens at his best, i think-- full of imagery and descriptive language and good and evil and redemption...at less than 200 pages. The illustrations by P.J. Lynch help convey the mid 19th century feel. Brilliant.

its 4 ghosts not 3. Marly is a ghost to!

This book opened my eyes to a whole different side and meaning of Christmas. I used to think that Christmas was just another time of the year when annoying family members came over because they had nothing else to do. But once I got past the 4th chapter, it was 'love at first sight'. Now, I understand that what you did in the past really has a big impact on your future. This book is a 'must read'.

I first read Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol in my 7th grade English class. The story remains as lyrical now as I first discovered then. I cannot imagine Christmas or literature without it. The tone is nearly perfect watching Ebenezer Scrooge transform from a cold, old miser into a human being desiring another chance to give back to the world. To fully appreciate the language, I recommend listening to it or reading the story aloud.
