I put off reading this book so much I suppose because it is just so well known it's hard not to know the story before even starting to read it. Also, Scrooge is a part of every day language in that it does kind of take the pleasure from reading the book as well.
All that aside, I do declare that I love Charles Dickens. I love his style of writing, how he describes people and places - his wit and humour and his unique characters.
I love Scrooge. I want to give him a big hug at the end. I read a rather beautifully illustrated version of A Christmas Carol which only added to the enjoyment of reading. I think it is one of those books that deserves to be read and to be passed down through the generations.
Definitely a good story of Christmas.
