A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Oh, this beloved holiday classic never disappoints! A Christmas Carol is Charles Dickens at his writing forte! This age-old classic embraces mystery, misery, greed, wealth, compassion, redemption, and love through a vast array of characters, human and the ‘like’, with twists and turns that tug at the heart strings of the reader. As characters are transformed during the deepest and darkest hours of Christmas Eve, the reader must wonder if Dickens meant to remind his audience of God’s redemptive nature at work in Jesus’ nativity during the same Christmas eve hours that the soul of the fictional character Ebeneezer Scrooge was transformed by the visits, sights, and lessons from three Christmas spirits. Curl up this Christmas season or any time of year, get yourself a blanket and a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy this classic holiday tale!
