A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol Summary

Celebrate the spirit of the season with this complimentary edition of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol–the perfect companion for a cozy night by the fire. Includes an exclusive excerpt from Marley, Jon Clinch’s masterful reimagining of A Christmas Carol:

“In Marley, again Jon Clinch shows his genius, taking Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and turning it inside out, revealing its contemporary wonder, making the characters and actions of both Scrooge and Marley entirely modern, without losing a beat of Dickens’ Victorian music.” —Robert Goolrick, New York Timesbestselling author of A Reliable Wife


“I am the Ghost of Christmas Present,” said the Spirit. “Look upon me!”

Since its publication in 1843, A Christmas Carol has become a cultural touchstone, imparting a message as relevant to our world today as it was in Dickens’ own Victorian age. As it tells the story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by three spirits on Christmas Eve, the book reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas. This timeless tale of transformation and redemption makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves great storytelling.

A new Christmas tradition!5 star

As someone who enjoys watching Christmas movies a lot during December, I have always been a huge fan of more than one film version of A Christmas Carol, including the exciting 1999 made-for-TV remake starring Patrick Stewart as Scrooge. I also love the movies Ms. Scrooge, Ebbie, and A Diva’s Christmas Carol, three fun and sweet movies that offer modern twists on the story and usually feature a female Scrooge as the main character. I would definitely also recommend the 1988 classic Scrooged, a touching and hilarious classic starring Bill Murray. Because of my love for these films, I decided years ago that I would someday read Charles Dickens’ book to see if I like it. I loved it! I read a paperback edition, one I’m glad I bought from a thrift store, but I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Christmas stories, whether you like reading print books or digital books. It’s also pretty cool that there’s more than one faithful adaptation, but there are details in the book that makes it better than any movie, no surprise! One great detail is quite simply the writing itself. This might be a book that was written more than 100 years ago, but there’s a poetic feeling to Charles Dickens’ writing that makes this story absolutely beautiful! A great book that anyone should read to get into the jolly “ho-ho” spirit. Merry Christmas!🎄🎁55
