I love Dickens for his extravagant yet precise way with words; for his funny, well-observed portraits -- so often exaggerated, often to the point of caricature, but (mostly) always a feeling of truth & affection; for his indignation; & his determination to give the reader a good time. A Christmas Carol is heart-felt & funnier in print than the TV & movie versions. It is also particularly well-written. Dickens uses a cascade of words & images in long, complicated sentences that suddenly resolve into short, simple, direct sentences which carry the point of the scene and/or a joke, often both. It is a wonderful companion while you're reading it. (PS: It also substantially changed the way England & the US celebrate Christmas -- worth reading up on....)

Gotta love Dickens' language- wordy and piquant together. Accessibly brief.<br/> Admittedly hooked by Alastair Sim early, so I would like this Dickens if I didn't like Dickens.

The main character is a man taken from the present with all his poor human attributes as being a miser, and put into all temptations to make him into a complete different being,following a magic and dream we all have .There were three ghosts to tempt him:Past,Present and Future.<br/><br/>The past in its intention of reminding to the child he used to be…childhood is most important period in life;from that comes all the destiny if you followed it in right way.it is also the richest and happiest for lack of awareness of all malign and vicious which mature man can bring forth.The Childhood bears smile of innocence ,most visible in eyes of a child.It also forewarns you that your opponent,fellow you confront once was such a child and give a chance to melt your approach and forgive.<br/><br/>read on <br/>my review on Christmas Carol<br/>http://slavicavista.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/christmas-carol/

As a boy growing up in Iowa and Illinois, my mother insisted that we read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens between Thanksgiving and Christmas each year. I loved it then and still love it. Movies and TV have never created it so well as my imagination.

It was the 3D animation film version of this novel that arose my curiosity, which prompted me to read the book. The film was very well-done, and the book is a very good one as well. I loved the story for its simplicity and moral behind the story.
