    " Having grown up watching Scrooge, it bothered me when things in the book were different. :) Still a very entertaining story! "

    " What's not to like? I'm amazed how much the Muppets stuck to the book. I really enjoyed it. "

    " Words can't describe it, not even Charles Dickens... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Raju | 2/4/2014

    " Even though you know what is bound to happen, it still is an amazing read. You go through all the emotions Scrooge goes through and like him at the end you too feel happy and enriched and want to become a better person. "

    " Sorry Dickens, but not as compelling as I had hoped. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Godard | 1/19/2014

    " Beautifully overdone, as only the Victorians knew how to do it. Lovely, lovely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeni | 1/17/2014

    " I enjoy this classic very much. This year I read it with my kids before seeing the play. It was a fun, quick read that still was thought provoking. The kids also enjoyed pointing out how the play differed from the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cricket Haley | 1/13/2014

    " I just listened to the Audible version which was a free gift, Narrated by Tim Curry! I do love to be read to! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/4/2014

    " Excellent short story. Finished it just before an adaptation started on tv. The book was so much better could only watch for about 10 mins. A master storyteller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline Venables | 12/18/2013

    " Thanks to Chris Evans I shall be reading this every December now. A lovely book that reminds us what is truly important. However I can't read it without picturing the muppets! "

    " Read this book for the first time and read it Christmas Eve. Wonderful story, so meaningful even in this modern era "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 12/10/2013

    " Always a good re-read at Christmas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyricsninja | 7/10/2013

    " I'm glad that i picked this up to actually take a real read on it after having seen so many versions of movies, plays, tv specials, etc. Dickens really does a superb job of painting an vibrant picture of the times that cannot be reached by any amount of physical scenery. books > movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 4/9/2013

    " All time family favourite. We have read through it for Christmas parties taking tuns with different parts and voices. Takes about 4 1/2 hours with breaks for wassail and refreshments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Winter | 1/24/2013

    " Short, classic and a huge moral implanted into the book to teach the young and old a great lesson. Great work Dickens! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey | 12/28/2012

    " Even better reading as an old person. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zep | 10/19/2012

    " it was mostly interesting to see what had been done differently through the countless movie versions I've seen through the years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Zahava | 11/28/2011

    " This book captures character beautifully. It reveals how bitterness is created in a man and how a cold exterior can be melted away. It's not really about Christmas, it just uses the spirit of Christmas to reveal the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 7/5/2011

    " Read this aloud to my girls this Christmas season. Really enjoyed it and they did too!!! It will be fun to read it again next year. As the girls get older and understand the language more I think it will be even more fun. The book is actually quite humorous and a great Christmas read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri | 4/28/2011

    " Loved the original illustrations and the additional woodcuts. This is one of those books I try to read every holiday season. I get more out of it every time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Lamie-fulk | 4/20/2011

    " Finally a classic book I can understand. Will keep to read around Christmas in the future "

    " A true classic. So good! Very touching. "

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.
