I've done a staged reading of this book so many times that it was nice to just sit down and read it. I love this classic tale. It's the only Dickens I've actually been able to make it through thus far. Dickens may be overly word (in my opinion) but I can't get enough of this story. I may have to make it a tradition to read it every holiday season.

I read this every year and every year I love it more and more. We all know the story, of course (if you don't know it, you must be living under a rock!), but to read the real Dickens version is a true experience. His use of detail and vivid imagery is brilliant, and you really see Scrooge's change as he experiences his past, present, and future. A Christmas delight!

This is a classic Charles Dickens story. Great story that still holds up after 150+ years.

Better than any production or movie bearing its title, the original work is sophisticated, poignant and captivating. More than just a ghost story, Dickens uses his great skills to create a character in Scrooge that has depth and redemption. A short read, it is worth reading aloud to anyone who will listen.
