Do you celebrate Christmas? Well if you don't your on the same level as Scrooge the main character of A Christmas Carol. Charles Dickens created a true masterpiece when he wrote A Christmas Carol, telling a story of a man who had to decide what is right to change his future. This fictitious story really gets the gears in your head turning. Scrooge is a very mean man in 1800s London. His business partner, Marley, dies at the very beginning of the story and later visits scrooge as a ghost. He tells Scrooge he will be visited by three ghosts. The Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. They take him through different parts of his life. All three have different personalities. Charles Dickens gives great details of the characters without telling you directly. Throughout the whole story Charles dickens keeps you wanting more of the story line and makes sense with the book. Overall it's a great book with sophisticated words, and I would recommend this book for all readers.

The audiobook mentioned was a selling point for me. It isn't a file, but a text internet address on the very last page of the ebook that the nook does not recognize as a hyperlink. Apparently this guy Sam Ngo went and found the free ebook with illustrations and also found a free audiobook file on an archive website somewhere and wrote out the file's internet address on the last page of the book and epub'd it. You would have to look up the file online from your computer, download the audiobook and physically hook up your nook to transfer the file from your computer to your nook. So why pay this guy 1.99? Just go out and find the free files yourself. Probably deleting this. Oh and you have to laugh when the guy says "money back guaranteed... just email us" and then he doesn't give you and email address.

    Highly recommend

    It was so nice to read after watching every year. It was interesting especially about the Messengers that came. I had more of sense who Ebenezer Scrooge was and his weakness, fears and frailities.This is such a classic story.

    The Original?

    Is this the original way Dickens wrote it or is it edited to make it it easier to read?

    TRANSLATION:
    If you can read this, you are on of many. It is scientifically proven that if the first and last letters of a word are unchanged, your mind can arrange the letters pretty quick. This doesnt quite work with words that are three letters or less. Bigger words are harder to read. Finally, if you add and apostrophe, it loses the effect.

    I really like this book. it is such a classic and the gold edges make it look really special. It is a little flimsy but I'm glad that I bought it.
