It feels silly to review a classic. The story has already proven itself. I suppose I could say the prose held up to my expectations. I love the way Charles Dickens writes, although at times it is dense and requires me to slow down to allow processing time. Either way, I love the way old prose challenges my mind, it helps to work the muscles that aren’t often used.
We all know the story – grumpy Scrooge is visited by three spirits: one from the past, one from the present, and one from the future. These spirits show him things that have happened, are currently happening, or will happen, things which he has caused due to his choices. After the third visit, Ebenezer Scrooge decides to be a positive, loving, emphatic person – hoping to change the future.
If you haven’t read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens yet, pick it up. It’s a small novella, a quick read, it may be a little challenging, but his writing is just fantastic.
