A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

                                                                                "Bah! Humbug!"
Perhaps the most famous and most easily recognized words spat out of the very mouth of our very own Ebenezer Scoorge.

What a delightful tale. Only ever did I hear tell of "A Christmas Carol" through video, before deciding that this was the year that I simply must read it in all its glory and splendor. I was not disappointed. Far from it, I was actually pleasantly surprised at the beauty of it. The writing was breath taking, the story itself awe inspiring. Charles Dickens truly is a master of words and story telling. My only regret being of not having read it before now, and of reading it 'after' the Christmas season rather then before. I imagine the reading experience would of been just that much more magical with the impending Christmas affair upon us.

And from the mouth of Tiny Tim "God bless us, Every One!"

My rating :*****
