Ebenezer Scrooge is a miser who lords over his poor employee, Bob Cratchit, and hates the joys that Christmas affords everyone but himself.

After being exceptionally miserable at the office on the day of Christmas Eve, Scrooge returns home to be haunted by three spirits who attempt to motivate a change in the old man's demeanor - lest he continue on his current path and face almost certain eternal damnation.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 6/9/2011

    " I think that this book was very vivid and creative because it has a moral within itself. It teaches you to be generous and kind to others, rather than be a selfish, greedy person that everybody will hate. This book is truly wonderful, almost like a classic within itself. Highly recommended. "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
