Having seen the Muppet's movie version of this book countless times over the years, I decided it was high time I read the original.

Having seen the Muppet's movie version of this book countless times over the years, I decided it was high time I read the original. While it would surprise my high school English teacher to learn I've developed a taste for the classics as an adult, I've never been able to warm to Dickens. I found his writing confusing back as a student, and apparently not much has changed for me in that regard.

A Christmas Carol (Christmas Books series Book 1) and . Larger font with some illustrations throughout. Classic thick book stock.

In October 1843, Charles Dickens ? heavily in debt and obligated to his publisher ? began work on a book to help supplement his family's meager income.

It is truly fantastic and makes me want to read other Dickens.

A christmas carol, . The door of Scrooge's counting-house was open that he might keep his eye upon his clerk, who in a dismal little cell beyond, a sort of tank, was copying letters.

bound on other journeys. some labourers were repairing the gas-pipes, and had lighted a great fire in a brazier, round which a party of ragged men and boys were gathered: warming their hands and winking their eyes before the blaze in rapture. The water-plug being left in solitude, its overflowings sullenly congealed, and turned to misanthropic ice.

Christmas is humbug, Scrooge says – just a time when you find yourself a year older and not a penny richer

Christmas is humbug, Scrooge says – just a time when you find yourself a year older and not a penny richer. The only thing that matters to Scrooge is business, and making money. But on Christmas Eve three spirits come to visit him. They take him travelling on the wings of the night to see the shadows of Christmas past, present, and future – and Scrooge learns a lesson that he will never forget.

Being a Ghost Story of Christmas, commonly known as A Christmas Carol, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843 and illustrated by John Leech

Being a Ghost Story of Christmas, commonly known as A Christmas Carol, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843 and illustrated by John Leech. A Christmas Carol recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man.

A Christmas Carol book. Charles John Huffam Dickens was a writer and social critic who created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.

Written by Dickens in late 1843 to supplement his family's meager income, this imaginative, heartwarming tale recounts the eerie encounters of Ebenezer Scrooge, an arrogant and insensitive miser, whose ghostly journeys through the past, present, and future ultimately transform him into a generous and caring individual.This unabridged Dover edition is specially designed for those who need or prefer large print.

Nice cover and illustrations, but the publisher has added a forward that manages to be transphobic, homophobic and emphasizes a conservative Christian viewpoint while railing against political correctness. I was just trying to buy a copy of a classic, not stumble into an angry comments section. Bonus: the pages tear our easily.

I purchased this "unabridged" copy of the Dickens' classic for my 6th grader's literature class. I have a hardback copy at home, but he needed one he could take to school and make notes in. We found entire paragraphs missing, typos, and the table of contents does not list out the separate staves, making it very confusing. My son has tried to use this for school, but it has been too confusing for him to follow along in class, since the paragraphs and breaks don't match up with the books his peers are using. If you are looking for an inexpensive copy of A Christmas Carol, find another option! This one is definitely not a legitimate unabridged copy, and is a terrible option if the book is for school. I am purchasing another copy for my son.

I bought this last year at Christmastime and never had the opportunity to listen to it until recently. My parents and I absolutely love it !
I have always adored Patrick Stewart's video version of a Christmas Carol, he is one of the best Scrooge's ever ! In this version it is just him reading the entire book with no sound effects, he does all of the voices brilliantly. You are drawn into the story from beginning to end.
This is a masterpiece of acting. You will be enthralled by the entire production. You will feel like you are there in Merry Old England as a part
of the story. Mr. Stewart has one of the best voices in the business !

Patrick Stewart gives the voice performance for the ages in this reissue of the original production that became a tradition in our home a quarter century ago. Only an actor of Stewart's sublime talent could achieve what he does in this beautifully done interpretation of Dicken's classic masterpiece. Perhaps you think you've seen this done far too many times and probably believe nothing more can be done with this, especially if you saw Jim Carey's super-odd animated abomination or been stunned by Mr. McGoo's version. There has been some good work done by many actors, from Reginald Owen to George C. Scott. The Muppets, with the superb assistance of Michael Caine, did a fantastic job. However, by leading the mind's eye through our own imaginations, Sir Patrick is an absolutely wondrous guide. Indeed, this is not simply one of the truly excellent Christmas Carol's, it also is one of the finest voice performances ever recorded. In a time when we are bombarded by visual stimulation constantly and radio dramas are all but forgotten, this would be a incredible introduction for young people to the world of personal imagination as a single voice enacts a story and the pictures originate in their minds. Stewart is masterful and each Christmas we celebrate his gift to us by listening as a family as he brings A Christmas Carol to life for us. Sadly, this might all be coming to an end as everyone texts, tweets, and instagrams and attention spans are measured in microseconds. For now, I live with the illusion that the old tradition continues and I am at peace with that. Sir Patrick Stewart is still part of my Christmas and is performance is mesmerizing as all the people in the Dicken's tale come to life in my imagination.

We all know Charles Dicken's work is a timeless classic. That is a given, and so my review will only be about the quality of the overall book and artwork.

Fantastic. Such a well put together edition of this amazing story. Strong binding, sturdy stock. And the artwork by PJ Lynch is stellar. I instantly bought another book with his illustrations after buying this one. He creates such a strong mood fitting with this iconic Christmas Ghost story. And there aren't just a few pictures, the book is filled with his art. Very happy with this purchase.

This is a nice version of A Christmas Carol, but I was hoping it would be a more accurate reproduction of the first printing. It has a printed hardcover, but not leather with gilded graphic and text like the first edition was. It also does not have the gilded page edges like the original. The biggest downfall is that the original illustrations are poor quality. Still nice overall.

This classic tale is every bit as great as it's reputation. I'd seen all the movies and enjoyed them but never actually read the book. Well I will tell you this. It is definitely worth the time and I'm not talking about much time. This is actually a quick read. Having seen all the films, I read the dialogue, pretty much already knowing all of it, nearly word for word. It's worth reading, though, for Dickens' prose which flows wonderfully across the page. Of all the classics I've read, this one ranks very high on my list.

I had put reading "A Christmas Carol" off for years, until I finally saw this beautiful copy and said, "What the hay?" Best decision I've ever made! There's no secret as to why this book has become a classic. The writing is beautiful and sucks you into a world filled with holiday cheer. Scrooge is as nasty as ever, but Dickens knows how to make you root for the character in the end. And each ghost has a mind of its own. Very much worth any price set on it, especially this copy, which is nice and small. A quick read for a good fuzzy feeling of holiday cheer!
