Overview

A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Stories by Charles Dickens

Dicken's most beloved story, A Christmas Carol, is as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe and carolers. This heartwarming tale continues to stir in us the same feelings of repentance, forgiveness, and love that transformed Ebenezer Scrooge.

About the Author

Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors’ prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and “slave” factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years’ formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story during the holidays this year. It was spooky and spellbinding with the heartfelt touches of Christmas spirit wrapped into one engaging plot.

This is one of the most famous Christmas stories ever written; and it's safe to say that most people know the general plot. However, the detailed (yet not mundane) descriptions given by Dickens add significantly to the plot creating a very realistic mental picture and greatly enhancing the overall story from what movies portray it to be. This is a must read for the Holiday season.
