A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings by Charles Dickens

RATING: 4/5

REVIEW: Seeing as there were so many snippets of Dickens’ wonderful festive writings in this book (which was, as you may have guessed, a much-appreciated Christmas present), I decided that for the purposes of this review I’d just focus on the one that many of us know and love: ‘A Christmas Carol’. This is, of course, the tale of the miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge, whose cold heart and cruel nature are amended through the visitations of four ghosts to him on Christmas Eve – that of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, and the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future. As well as being a highly moral tale, this story is highly entertaining and I enjoyed going back to it after years of just watching the countless film adaptations every year! Dickens’ writing truly evokes the spirit of Christmas, in both good and bad circumstances, and this is a story to truly warm the heart and promote goodwill to all men! Go back to it this Christmas, or venture towards it for the first time if you like, and be truly amazed by how festive it makes you feel.
