Genre: Ghost story, Morality tale, Novella, Parable, Social criticism,
Page Count: Unknown
Year Read: 2011

Goodreads: One of the best-loved and most quoted stories of "the man who invented Christmas"-English writer Charles Dickens-A Christmas Carol debuted in 1843 and has touched millions of hearts since. Cruel miser Ebeneezer Scrooge has never met a shilling he doesn't like. . .and hardly a man he does. And he hates Christmas most of all. When Scrooge is visited by his old partner, Jacob Marley, and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come, he learns eternal lessons of charity, kindness, and goodwill. Experience a true Victorian Christmas!

Review: Charles Dickens wrote an excellent novel when writing the Christmas Carol. I love the title... A Christmas Carol sounds like a happy christmas song, yet it's quiet the opposite. Dickens  is very descriptive throughout the novel, setting the mood to each situation very nicely. It's just like watching the movie (Disney's A Christmas Carol)... but better... in my opinion.
