Beautiful hardback...but will it last? Dec 23 2011
By K. W. Lowery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As far as the content in this book, it is fantastic - Dickens work easily earns fives stars.

This review is mainly on the book itself. I have five of these style of books from "Penguin Classics" and, although beautiful, I do wonder what they will look like in five years and after a few handlings by friends or family. Of the two I have read so far, the ink designs are starting to rub off slightly in some places. With some hardbacks, the ink is pressed at least a bit into the hard cover. With these books, it is just printed directly onto the clothe.

I have some leather bound books and so I do know how take care of my books. Perhaps the covers could have worn some will carrying in my bag. I am not sure, but my advice is to just be cautious to protect the covers if you choose these hardback editions of the classics.

Penguin cloth hardcover Jan. 5 2013
By Carmen Fry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the only book of Charles Dickens' I liked and was able to read the entire way through. I'd recommend renting a library copy to read first, if you've never read the story. If you've read the story, are a lover of books, or like something pretty on your bookshelf, this is a great buy. The cover has a nice feel to it, almost like a canvas, and the snowflakes are dark navy colored. The inside covers are the same navy, as is the cloth bookmark. The book itself does have illustrations throughout, a nice sized font, and tons of footnotes, if you care to read them (which I do).
The layout is as follows; a Dickens chronology, introduction (cultural significance of story, context, Dickens' thoughts on Christmas, etc), Christmas Festivities (thoughts and observations), The Story of the Goblins Who Stole a Sexton (an imaginative story of a mean undertaker and the goblins who teach him a lesson), A Christmas Episode from Master Humphrey's Clock (a single man who befriends a deaf man in a tavern), A Christmas Carol, The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain, A Christmas Tree, What Christmas Is, As We Grow Older, The Seven Poor Travellers, appendices, and footnotes. So far, I've read up to A Christmas Carol (in the last chapter), and it is a great collection of stories so far. I love the contents, the way it looks, and I'm very satisfied with the purchase to the point that I want to buy more Penguin Classic cloth hardcover books.

Cover image wears off Dec 3 2013
By Danielle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Love this story, don't like this book. I've been collecting this series, but have noticed as I start to read them all that the designs on the covers rub off quite quickly. A nice set if you plan to never actually read them.

Beautiful Book July 19 2012
By tracy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We all know what kind of a text we are getting here, so instead I will talk about the physical features. The binding on this and the cover are beautiful. I love the foiled look of the snow flakes. The pages are standard book pages, not glossy and a bit rough to the touch, compared to say printer paper, but not at all the yellow-ish cheep stuff you see in some books. The cover has a canvasy/fabric feel. It made a very nice gift and I was happy to get it.

Fun to Read Jan. 12 2012
By Timothy M. O'toole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book has a wonderful selection of stories . Having never actually read 'A Christmas Carol' it was a joy to read it for the first time. Reading it brought back memories of reading Dickens in High School and College. Well worth the purchase price.
