This story was very similar to A Christmas Carol, yet somehow lacked a bit of its charm. The characters were engaging, and a few enraged me so much that it was hard to believe they were fictional, but the story meanders a little too much for my liking. I also felt that the ending left a few things loose - in A Christmas Carol, the 'bad' character gets his comeuppance, yet in The Chimes the character who does all the learning is certainly not the one who really deserves to be taught a lesson. Also, I thought that the reasoning for his needing to be taught a lesson was a little weak - but that just might be me.
