    One of the famous works of Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol is a classic novel about a grasping old miser Ebenezer Scrooge, set in the backdrop of Victorian era.

    Summary Of The Book

    A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a book that highlights the fascinating story of Ebenezer Scrooge. The spirit of Christmas is in the air but Mr. Scrooge is hardly interested in any revelry. To him, his money and his work is everything. Even on the eve of Christmas he makes his employees work. He is not even bothered to wish anyone for Christmas; to him it is just another day of the year. But will the spirit of Christmas spare him from realising the fact that money is not everything and that he will be all alone one day. Only to make him realise this truth, one of his deceased friend Mr. Jacob Marley’s spirit visits Mr. Scrooge in his dream and warns him about his destiny if he remains the same. Later in the story, the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future visits Mr. Scrooge, one after the other only to make him understand, that his life is nothing but remorse without the essence of brotherhood and love. But how will Mr. Scrooge realise this? Is he guilty for what he does? Find out the meaning of the spirit of Christmas with Mr. Scrooge’s retrospection of his life.  

    This book has been popular for ages and with several reprints of its original book, which was first published in the year 1843, A Christmas Carol is still a book that will leave its readers mesmerised. This book became so famous among the ardent readers of English Literature that some of the expressions in this book became popular idioms like “Merry Christmas”, and “Humbug!” And the name Scrooge became a synonymous word for someone who hoards money. This book has been adapted to various means of media like films, television, radio, operas, ballets, recordings, graphic novels, parodies, and dramas throughout ages.

    Not recommended at all

    Binding is poor in such a way that words ending on left page and starting on right page are not readable. Lack of proper spacing in order to save pages. Consider same book from another publisher before buying this. This product doesn't give you the feel you should get while reading such kind of piece.
