    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheryl Sato | 2/12/2014

      " As always, Charles Dickens does not fail to disappoint. I first read this book in high school but can't remember what I thought of it. Having seen about 4 versions of A Christmas Carol last December, it was interesting to reread the book to see how the movies treated the original version. There are many quotable quotes in this book and I have lots of favourites. Great for a read at any time of the year, rich with allegory and beautiful turn of phrases, I highly recommend reading this book. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billy Young | 2/10/2014

      " What can you say about this book that hasn't already been said? Not a lot other than that it is one that is a must for all avid readers to read at some point which I can now say I have. A great read for these cold winter nights. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fatface Waitakere | 1/22/2014

      " Another of those books read in my youth and seen only on the surface. An apt lesson for us, even today: do as you would be done by; you are not an island. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Metcalfe | 1/20/2014

      " Classic love going back to it "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruthie Nelson | 1/18/2014

      " Read this every year with some of my students. It is one of my favorites. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/16/2014

      " 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. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 12/21/2013

      " It's a very good story to read on one winter's night. "

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

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 10/17/2013

      " I read this most Christmas seasons - to get in the "Spirit" of Christmas. I enjoy almost everything I've read by Dickens. I enjoy his style, and I feel I am reading words of value when I read his novels. "

    • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 James Clark-dixon | 10/11/2013

      " 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. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tess Sullivan | 9/28/2013

      " Not a very long book, but in the number of pages Dickens manages to load more life-changing literature than any other. It's no wonder it's such a classic, in the true spirit of Christmas. An absolute beacon of literature and what it's supposed to be. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna | 7/24/2013

      " Who doesn't love this Christmas Classic?!! "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hpboy13 | 5/27/2013

      " Probably my favorite Dickens novel yet of the four I've read. It's simple, it's charming. Not really containing any of Dickens's trademark humor. It's very short, and therefore a quick light read, perfect for the holidays! "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Cepero | 8/11/2011

      " I really enjoyed finally reading this story. After seeing it done in so many ways on the big and little screen, it was nice to read it. Definitely a quick read too! Could have read in one day if I gave myself a couple of hours to read. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Sgambato | 12/26/2010

      " Classic which I read often at Christmas time. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Papa | 5/2/2010

      " I love this story. I read the book every couple of years at Christmas and watch The Muppets Christmas Carol every year. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannyboo | 3/26/2010

      " I can't believe I had never read this book before. What a great, quick, Christmas read! "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/16/2010

      " Found out the other day that this revolutionized the celebration of Christmas. Just another reason it is a great novel. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rita R | 11/20/2009

      " In my personal opinion, Dickens is a master author. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nellie Reeves | 7/4/2007

      " I would say this is the greatest Christmas tale of them all and one I will never grow tired of. Scrooge is one of the greatest ever characters in English literature. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 4/12/2007

      " Love it. Charles Dickens just has a way with that pen. "

      " Read it every Christmas :) "
