A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

Over 150 years old, it is no surprise that Dickens's classic tale is filled with details and references that have become obscure—and so, voila! This sumptuous new edition, originally published in France, is printed on coated stock and well-supplied with marginal notes. It includes small but clear contemporary street scenes, title pages, documents, a mid-19th-century map of London, even reproduced ... Read full review

An interesting story line, coupled with absolutely brilliant use of language in the description of events, a air of mystery and happening constantly surrounds that characters in the novel, making 'A Christmas Carol' an utterly engaging read which is definitely worth your time! A brilliant all-time classic that is definitely not to be missed!

Hundreds of details that the movies and short films are only a pretext of the information written. The details of the mere volume of thoughts that Scrooge and several characters felt that i have never seen in any film, with the quality creative writing style makes this a beautiful Christmas tradition for reading to the family or listening with the family while a professional orator reads the brilliance of the moods.
What a great memory this makes for moral structure and Christmas closeness if made a serious part of any family's tradition.
The video's and films do NOT express many of the details of the authors intent on what brings quality of life not the volume of experiences of each ghost that films portray that only an hour was spent with each ghost yet the experiences with each ghost was extensive and deep lessons of what qualities Scrooge was missing needed serious time and process for him to not JUST feel guilty and repent, but to notice what life is truly about. (With details not in any film, considered unimportant I suppose.)
Along with "Mankind should have been my business." Dickens pushes us all in a way that most authors today are not allow to make such boasts unless they sell Christian books to just a few (1%) of the masses that need moral purging.
Dickens shows serious consequence that Proverbs of the Old Testament also shares with mankind.
This is a rich book. The Ghost of Dickens Past, also, is rich with weirdness and moral decision that make us responsible to God, mankind, and ourselves.
Who writes to help us to become the best we can be anymore? Scrooge sees his old partner go out the window and as Scrooge looks he sees several amazing things that no movie has ever even talked about, Governments Chained together, other chained prisoners of selfishness and cruelty to themselves.
This is an insightful and beautiful book that if read well, will change the heart and future of anyone who is honest with themselves.
Many will red this book and never see it's importance. Others, a few, will see the great worth of it's pages and aspire to create more material that does the same. That changes mankind.
For He is our business.
God Bless have a wonderful Christmas, thinking the right things.
God Bless us, Everyone.
