5.0 out of 5 stars classic July 9 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Wonderful, funny and moving. If you have never read the actual book you have missed a quirky treat of eccentric style, 1850's slang and the involving story of a saved soul. This is one book the world would have sorely missed had it never been written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bah humbug! Feb. 23 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"A Christmas Carol" is not just A Christmas story, but one of THE Christmas stories -- not only is it instantly recognizable by pretty much everybody, but it's relentlessly copied and spoofed in countless Christmas specials. But taken just by itself, Charles Dickens' yuletide novella is a pretty bleak and bittersweet affair, with brilliant imagery and lots of ghostly weirdness.

Scrooge is... well, a scrooge -- a professional miser who hates Christmas, goodwill, charity, puppies, kittens, his relatives, his employees, and virtually everything else except money.

And on Christmas Eve, his dead partner Jacob Marley comes back, wrapped with supernatural chains, and claims that Scrooge is doomed to the same fate. But he has a chance at redemption: three ghosts representing will visit him that night, taking him on a guided tour of Christmases past, present and yet to come.

So Scrooge is transported on a trio of hourlong trips through time. The childlike Ghost of Christmas Past takes him to his bleak childhood, when he was less jaded and hard. The jolly Ghost of Christmas Present takes him to people's homes on the very next morning, specifically of of his nephew and the poor miner Bob Cratchit. And finally a Ringwraith-like spirit gives him a glimpse of Christmas years in the future... a bleak and terrible future, unless he changes his ways.

You can read plenty of symbolism into a story like "A Christmas Carol"; I've heard speculation about Dickens' father, the Industrial Revolution, spiritualism, and all sorts of other stuff. But at its heart, "A Christmas Carol" is the most powerful when appreciated for its story alone -- a story about a greedy, miserable man who redeems himself by learning to love all humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Carol May 31 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Very intriguing, psychological, deep and didactic indeed. Notwithstanding, a lovely and classic story that provokes a thorough reassessment of personal values and human integrity. Dickens's lively narrative and writing mastery would certainly not leave you cold, regardless of your age and social status, allegedly.
