A Christmas Carol is a book by Charles Dickens that was first published in 1843 with illustrations by John Leech. The story was instantly successful, selling over 6,000 copies in one week. It was originally written in six weeks under financial pressure to help Dickens to pay off a debt, while he was writing another Christmas story. Further Christmas books, essays, and stories followed annually (except in 1847) through 1867. However, none equaled A Christmas Carol in potency. Download and start listening now!

    " It was a good book but it wasn't my type. "

    " A beautifully written book. The characters come to life in this classic tale of redemption. "

    " I've seen many filmed versions of the classic story but never read the actual text. I was interested to see that Scrooge's conversion begins almost immediately upon seeing what the Ghost of Christmas Past shows him. In most filmed versions, it seems to take a little longer to soften Scrooge's heart. By the time the Ghost of Christmas Future shows up, Scrooge is just urging the spirit to hurry up and finish because he's already decided how he's going to celebrate the season. For all its predictability because of repetition and exposure, it's still a touching story in the end. I do wonder, though, how relevant this original version is for younger readers. Some of the vocabulary and the world it belongs to will seem totally alien to people so far removed from that era in history. "

    " Great idea and great resolution! I'm sure if I'd have read it at a different time, I'd rate it at least 4 stars! "
