A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Selfish Scrooge is a lonely, isolated mean old man with no friends, who shuts everyone out. It seems like a regular boring old miserable Christmas, but when three ghosts visit Scrooge, can they make him think about his past, present and future? Can they make him change his ways and make him happier?

I read this in English last term, and I loved it!

This is a good classic to get into! It’s a novella and it’s Christmassey. I rate it 4 and a half stars as the writing is really great and funny, and it is really thoughtful. However, I do not like all of the “ahh hum-bugs”! This is great but at times it was really boring and too detailed and I did not understand some of it. However, overall, this is an amazing novella.
