Il vecchio, torvo e avaro Ebezener Scrooge odia il Natale. Odia che in quel giorno si perda tempo e denaro. Il suo cuore è una cassaforte piena di monete, la sua anima una superficie fredda e impassibile e proprio quando gli uomini si aprono alla tenerezza e alla gioia, lui si rinchiude in casa, da solo, quasi orgoglioso di essere detestato da tutti. Ma in una fredda notte invernale, dall'oscurità della sua casa vuota, l'inaspettata visita di tre fantasmi darà inizio ad uno straordinario viaggio nel tempo in cui Scrooge assisterà al suo passato, al presente più nascosto e al gelido futuro che lo aspetta, se insisterà a rinserrare il suo cuore nei rigidi lacci dell'avidità...

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.

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!
