I had seen numerous movie versions but this is my first time reading the book. I loved the social problems it addressed. One question Dickens asked, that was not answered in our bookclub discussion, was what can each of us as individuals do to help ignorance and want? I believe his answer was that each of us should be helping those in need in anyway big or small that is in our means.
My favorite holiday classic. I have read it so many times that I have lost track, between fifteen and twenty times. On years I don't read it, I am reading one of Dickens other Christmas stories. And I watch at least five different versions of it every Christmas.

It's Christmas and to feel more Christamassy and also admire a shorter work of Mr. Dickens I decided to return to A Christmas Carol. I know the story so well, but this is probably from numerous takes on it that I have watched - especially The Muppets.
Despite its universal appeals neither of these novels ranks amongst the best of Dickens. Nevertheless they should be a part of any decent literature collection
One of THE classics that probably most people on earth know. I read it every year around Christmas and never get tired of it.
Not the actual version I read last night but close enough!
