I have seen so many movies about the book, but hadn't actually read it. It was simply delightful. A quick and wonderful read. It's like Charles Dickens was sitting next to me telling the story himself. This story will live forever.
This rendition of A Christmas Carol is true to the spirit in which Dickens wrote it. It reads like a short story but not one detail is left out of this original work. Within the pages are a few illustrations of the major Characters leaving nothing to the imagination. This is a Christmas Classic you never grow tired of and the message of peace and love for all human kind is just as true as it was back then. It is the true meaning of holiday spirit that never grows old.
I enjoyed reading the original Christmas Carol by Dickens since I have seen so many movie versions of it. It was fascinating to see what was left in from the book and what was taken out, or where something was embellished or blatantly added in. It was also helpful to really get the feel of Dickens' time period, so I think in the long run it will make watching the movies more enjoyable next time.
