Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In October 1843, Charles Dickens ? heavily in debt and obligated to his publisher ? began work on a book to help supplement his family's meager income. That volume, A Christmas Carol, has long since become one of the most beloved stories in the English language. As much a part of the holiday season as holly, mistletoe, and evergreen wreaths, this perennial favorite continues to delight new readers and rekindle thoughts of charity and goodwill.
With its characters exhibiting many qualities ? as well as failures ? often ascribed to Dickens himself, the imaginative and entertaining tale relates Ebenezer Scrooge's eerie encounters with a series of spectral visitors. Journeying with them through Christmases past, present, and future, he is ultimately transformed from an arrogant, obstinate, and insensitive miser to a generous, warmhearted, and caring human being. Written by one of England's greatest and most popular novelists, A Christmas Carol has come to epitomize the true meaning of Christmas.

Review:
This engrossing tale relates Ebenezer Scrooge's ghostly journeys through Christmases past, present, and future and his ultimate transformation from a harsh and grasping old miser to a charitable and compassionate human being. A perennial classic that has become as much a part of the holiday season as holly, mistletoe, and evergreen wreaths.

Book Description: Dover Publications, 1991. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: New. 68 pages; A ghost turns up at Ebenezer Scrooge's home one Christmas Eve. It is Jacob Marley, his business partner, who has been dead for seven years. He is dragging heavy chains, and is obviously full of great sorrow and unbearable pain. While Scrooge is still trying to decide whether the apparition is real or a piece of his imagination, Marley's ghost tells him something that might change his life forever: 'You will be haunted by three spirits. Without their visits, you cannot hope to avoid the path I tread. 'Expect the first tomorrow when the bell tolls one. 'Expect the second on the next night at the same hour. 'The third upon the next night when the last stroke of twelve has stopped vibrating.' One of the most popular Christmas stories of all time, Dickens's novel remains a great favourite all over the world. A poignant and thought-provoking story, it's a delight to read again and again.
