8th Day of Christmas Book Review

A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens

Well, I've debated about posting a review of A Christmas Carol. I don't want to be too boring or cliche, but I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that most people have probably seen some movie version of this book, but have never actually read it. That was me until last year. Now I can proudly check it off of my "I really should read that some day since it's a classic" list. So, if you've got any inclination to read it, go a head and give it a try (it's quick read after all).

Since everyone knows the basic plot of this story, I won't go into any details here. I just want to put a plug in about how this really is a sweet story. There is a lesson to be learned from reading it. For me it was if everyone could have a true change of heart like Ebenezer did, the world would be a better place. We need to let go of the materialism and just appreciate each other and live today.

Now I should probably hurry up and read the other Christmas stories that accompany the the main title. They are: The Chimes, and The Cricket on the Hearth.

My Rating

Overall: 3.5 stars? It's hard for me to rate this book, since I'd seen movies based on the book before I had read it.

Objectionable Content: none

Do you own this one? Yes you were right about me, seen movies but never read the book. Never thought about it before I guess. Anyways if you have it can I borrow it?
