Ebenezer Scrooge, arido e spilorcio finanziere londinese, odia il Natale. Lo considera - anzi - tempo perso, e un ostacolo al proprio arricchimento. Ma la notte della Vigilia, dopo una giornata passata alla scrivania senza nulla concedere all'atmosfera festosa che lo circonda, riceve la visita di tre spiriti: quello del Natale passato, quello del Natale presente e quello del Natale futuro. Nel corso di un fantastico viaggio che farà rivivere a Scrooge tutte le tappe della propria vita e intravedere un ben misero futuro, gli spiriti riusciranno ad aprire i suoi occhi a sentimenti di generosità e amore. Il Canto di Natale non è però solo una favola a lieto fine. È anche uno degli esempi meglio riusciti di critica sociale di Dickens, oltre che una delle più famose e commoventi storie sul Natale.

I read this every year at Christmas, and I always will do. Simply because of the atmosphere it evokes. This story is Christmas as far as I’m concerned. It wouldn’t be the same without it. It is perfectly festive and is also appropriately didactic. It is an allegory for what happens to those that are Leggi tutto
It has been a decade since I last read this classic, so I decided to look at it again, taking note of what I have forgotten or imperfectly remembered and also garnering any new insights my older (and I hope wiser) self could now find within it. But first, I decided to do a little research, and discov Leggi tutto
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens It's a very heartwarming story and will remind one to have a giving and loving spirit. Loved this story. The tale is as delightful as its messages are. Found the messages so touching. I have gotten so much empathy toward the characters that'll be hard to describe. Leggi tutto
Update on December 24, 2020: I listened to this on audio this time around; something a bit different for me. I enjoyed the narration quite a lot, but there's nothing that beats reading Dickens in print. This story never fails to cheer, inspire, and give me pause to reflect on those things that I hol Leggi tutto
I’ve written a review on this book before. You know, back when I wrote mostly proper reviews!? It was a good one for once, but it’s disappeared, so there! 5 Stars ⭐️ Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
One of my favourite books of all time. It's a beautiful reminder of the spirit of Christmas, what the holiday represents and how we can be more kind and mindful of our actions.

How many times have I seen a version of A Christmas Carol? Probably too many times to count, but I can try: - A stage version at least half a dozen times - The Disney version with Scrooge McDuck - The Disney version with Jim Carrey - A Muppet Christmas Carol - Scrooged with Bill Murray - Probably more tha Leggi tutto
What a fantastic story! How terrible it was to be poor in the Victorian Era. Dickens was a humanitarian and saw first hand the poverty in the streets of London. The starving urchins trying to steal an apple or a handkerchief. The void between the rich and the poor. This story, like Oliver Twist in m Leggi tutto
This was a reread for me and it needs no introduction. The perfect read at Christmas time and I love it!
