Listener Opinions

    " I feel bad giving the book only three stars because the story itself is worth five. But having grown up on so many filmic versions ("Scrooge" with Albert Finney being my favorite by far), finally reading Dickens's prose just wasn't as fulfilling as I'd hoped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wilkes | 2/6/2014

    " Everyone knows the story of old Scrooge, and if they don't, they ought to. The story itself is more than a classic, it's a Christmas tradition. I, of course, thought the book was great and was one of those stories that is still okay to read for a school curriculum. if it is in any, it must be read near Christmas time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil Bardhan | 2/3/2014

    " A delightful book. One that perhaps shaped the way we celebrate Christmas in our modern times. Even though I don't believe in miracles, this book teaches you that what we do for others defines what we mean to them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reshmi William | 1/31/2014

    " This is a good book to read particularly around christmas time. It ushers in the mood and teaches some valuable lessons about keeping the spirit of christmas. It moves you with compassion and brings in a warm and welcome feeling of happiness and joy. Also, the movie is an absolute treat. Its word to word from the novel and a marvel in animation itself. Seeing the movie is akin to reading the novel, though I would prefer the latter. A short masterpiece by Charles Dicken. Ring in the spirit!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Metcalfe | 1/18/2014

    " Classic love going back to it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 1/13/2014

    " 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 1/11/2014

    " A classic - good morals, very readable. Finally get to see where the movie/tv show adaptations come from! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 1/4/2014

    " Bah humbug. You've probably seen some adaptation of the story but haven't read the book. Worth it? Meh. It's not that long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 12/24/2013

    " I had seen the movie but the book goes so much deeper, I thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tu | 11/23/2013

    " an authentic book of christmas spirit. Excellent wit and imagination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 11/20/2013

    " I can't believe I've never taken the time to read this before. I've seen the play/movie(s) many times and loved the deeper layer of understanding derived from reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise Jones | 9/27/2013

    " Reread every Christmas...never tire of the characters and the story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsten Kinnell | 7/22/2013

    " Stephen read this to us--what fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth Pieterse | 2/26/2013

    " Aaaah......... A book to relish. How good overcomes evil and Christmas is the winner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KF-in-Georgia | 2/8/2013

    " I like this one better than the Tim Curry version. This one has some eerie background music at the beginning and has tolling clocks--just enough extras to give you the proper spooky atmosphere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 10/21/2012

    " I ordered this edition to read to my kids this year during the holidays. Although the language was more mature for the young ones, they loved looking at the beautiful pictures that accompanied the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 alexandra | 10/6/2012

    " Read this on the recommendation of one of our students who works as a dancer at the Dicken's Faire each year. She promised it would be short and painless, and she was right. Maybe I'll try Tale of Two Cities one of these days. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 James Clark-dixon | 8/16/2012

    " Also had to read this for GCSE English. This one however I found incredibly mundane and boring. Call me scrooge but whatever. There's too many A Christmas Carol stories around and it annoys me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary Burke | 6/16/2012

    " Well, it's Dickens and it's Christmas, so a retreading of a Christmas Carol was in order. A short, quick read that's still one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sami Jackson | 3/26/2012

    " CLASSIC, plus it caused a revolution that made X-mas as popular as it does today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Schulstrom | 3/23/2012

    " I read this book almost every Christmas. I know some people think it's over-rated, but I love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Spring | 6/28/2011

    " A must have! I marveled at the descriptive skills of Charles Dickens.a great read.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruthy | 6/25/2011

    " I've always wanted to read the real version of this story and because I've grown hearing it every Christmas, I never bothered to actually read it. There was nothing new to add but yet, I still enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dodokins | 6/24/2011

    " And every christmas, I ask myself what will I see when the spirits come? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip | 6/23/2011

    " Ebeneezer Scrooge - one of the best realised characters in literature :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zohaib | 6/23/2011

    " This is a good book as good as the film perhaps even better
    :)
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heath | 6/21/2011

    " You can't go wrong with Dickens. This is a classic that everyone should read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cissi "Invisible but Invincible" | 6/20/2011

    " One of my favorites. Can't wait to see my old school perform the play next year! So exciting! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caryl | 6/19/2011

    " I finally read the book, and loved it! If you like the classic tale, the book is a fun read. The TV and film versions I've seen all have many direct quotes from Dickens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 6/14/2011

    " Just delightful. Dickens is only surpassed by Disney. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 6/13/2011

    " Performed as a readers' theater in high school "

  • 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rondell | 6/8/2011

    " it was a pleasure reading this book because i think the guy at the end of all his trials learn that you cant be selfish ,greedy and mean all his life and he learn that being unselifish anf creshirish it for the best .


    p.s i spelled a word wrong correct me... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo | 6/5/2011

    " I loved reading the original story because I have seen so many film versions of the Dickens classic. Dickens' writing style is well-crafted and entertaining as well. I found myself laughing at some of the side comments Dickens makes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 6/3/2011

    " Loved it! could read it over and over! "

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.
