A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

In his "Ghostly little book," Charles Dickens invents the modern concept of Christmas Spirit and offers one of the world’s most adapted and imitated stories. We know Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, not only as fictional characters, but also as icons of the true meaning of Christmas in a world still plagued with avarice and cynicism.

Ive read this during the Xmas holiday and at first few pages, it took me a while to grasp Dickens way of storytelling. Fortunately, I was to understand after I watched 3 different adapted films which somehow helped to fully appreciate the story. I think the character, Scrooge is still relevant in the present time.
