This was a DNF for me. I hadn't expected it to stay so close to the original story by Dickens. So, for an m/m read it was rather boring and just not what I expected at all.

With it being Christmas Eve I thought it timely to read Em Woods' take on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and I'm so glad I did! This version takes the classic story and puts a m/m spin on it but it still retains that classic feel through its language and imagery. The story is one that everyone knows by now but Em Woods has you looking at Scrooge in a vastly different, and sympathetic, way.

In Dickens' version the reasons behind Scrooge's miserly ways was never quite clear therefore his redem
I loved this! SO much! This is my father's favorite Christmas story, so I grew up watching at least one film version of it every year. All of those different interpretations, and this one has to be my new all-time favorite.

It's interesting that having seen and even read this story so often, I never questioned things the story has us take for granted: things like why Scrooge's father is so strict with him, why Scrooge's schoolmates avoid him, even why he's let money and gain consume him.

I have loved the original A Christmas Carol for a long time and enjoyed re-reading it with Em Woods' additions. I thought most of the new material was woven into the original story well and provided a believable back story for why Ebenezer Scrooge became the way he was. Marley's treatment of him was particularly poignant. My one quibble was that the couple of explicit sex scenes did not flow with the rest of the story as well as the other new content. They seemed more modern and out of character ...more

Beautifully done! A Christmas Carol has always been one of my favorite holiday stories, and Em's additions only make it that much better. I love the glimpse we get into Scrooge's heart, not only his relationship with Marley but also with his beloved Alex. “Never another such as you, Eb.” sums it up nicely.

4.5 - My favorite Christmas story and movie. Em’s interpretation and integration into Dickens’ story was seamless. Loved it!
Morticia Knight
Excellent re-telling of this classic - the author's voice was seamlessly interspersed with Dicken's. I loved, loved, loved the new storyline - highly recommended!

This classic story has always been a favorite for me and the twists that Em adds make for an ever richer tale. The two are well blended.

Totally Bound Pub...: A Christmas Carol 1 3 Feb 03, 2013 03:07PM  
All about little ol' me? Hmm. Okay, the normal stuff first. I currently live in the Midwest near Detroit, Michigan with my husband and two sons who are ten and seven years old. All three keep me on my toes. I work in the automotive industry making sure all the parts inside the car look pretty along with handling all the paperwork that goes along with that (you'd be amazed at how much there is!).
