This is Dickens at his best. I thoroughly enjoyed these charming, funny, touching stories. It was a fun, light read. Dickens is a master of characterization, and I marveled at how well I could get to know a character in these stories in such a short period of time and how each character or story teller had their own individual voice.

brilliant denunciation of the hypocrisy of those who would bring in a bill to Parliament to prevent the poor either working or having any pleasure on Sundays, while ensuring that the rich themselves can still enjoy their leisure activities and employ servants on that day. And the same kind of appalling cant, right honourable and wrong honourable members of the jury, is still being heard in Parliament today.

A Christmas Carol was a great story. It was better than the shows by far. There really isn't much more to say than it was a great story.

The other short stories were okay. That's why I have three stars.
