I love this story, but hated the book. I have always loved the story of Scrooge. I enjoy the movie/play versions of the story--watching the various versions is one of the handful of things I enjoy about this time of year. Having finally read the book a few years ago, I was disappointed. I did n...

Dickens wonderful story of how a man changes overnight in time for Christmas. I wanted a quick audiobook and this fit the bill. It was a good book to listen to while driving to work out and on the way home again.

Having seen probably every film version of this book that was made (yes even that Susan Lucci version where she played a female scrooge). I decided it was about time I checked out the original! Well all I can say is it was beyond worth it. Despite an occasional word or two I did not know the mean...

I love this story so much that I revisit it every year at the start of the holiday season. I love everything about it, from the characters to the story to the writing style. Dickens writes with sly humor, but there is no mistaking the gravity of his argument about the spirit of Christmas and those w...

I thought I'd like to re-read this one. So my spouse handed me a copy. It was a real copy. But then, she took that copy away and left me reading this "adapted" copy. That is, someone (Malvina G. Vogel) decided they could do a better job than Dickens writing the English language, or something. In all...

I watched and read many adaptations of this short novel but never read the original. The story was OK but the language used by Dickens is just as inaccessible as it was ten years ago.

A classic Christmas story, beautifully narrated by the wonderful Tim Curry.

Although this is THE christmas classic, I just now got around to read it for the first time and I absolutely love it! Scrooge and his epic “Bah, humbug!” is an amazing character, way better than his depiction in any movie adaptation I have seen (whereas my favourite one is the TV adaption from 1984)...
