The chimes is an over looked holiday classic by Dickens. It is a pity that A Christmas Carol gets all the attention, while a wonerful gem like this goes unnoticed. I recommmend the Colonial Radios Audio dramatization for those looking for some holiday listening. You will not be disappointed.

This is the second Christmas book that Dickens released and that seems apt because it should place second in his Christmas canon behind 'A Christmas Carol.' This book deals with some of the same themes that were explored by it's bigger brother but in a more direct and preachy way. That is the plight of the poor and the cold heartedness of the Victorian establishment and it's wealthy power players treat them. Be advised that this book is more somber and melodramatic than it's predecessor and Dickens doesn't hold back. The story of Trotty Veck and his family is both an indictment and a revelation even to this day and the fact that Dickens set it at the beginning of the new year -and all that potential that date suggests - was a stroke of genius. This book is important as it leads into his later and darker writings but it does have it's flaws. The writing seems rushed and unprofessional for a man of Dickens stature. It is never explained why the bells chose to admonished Trotty over anyone else in the story although most of the other characters seem to be heading in the wrong direction and there are large gaps in the tale as Trotty moves into the future that leaves the reader asking too many questions. This book was probably one good revision away from reaching the literary heights of Dickens other works. Having said that it is a good story and one that needed to be told both in Victorian London and the modern day but don't expect a masterpiece.
