A Christmas Carol
I knew the premise of A Christmas Carol (who doesn't) and I'll be honest that I had to work hard to stop picturing Scrooge McDuck every time I read 'Scrooge'. But I did enjoy this. It was a short read, and I don't usually enjoy Dickens but I tried to put my preconceptions aside. I still don't like Dickens' writing style. I'll be the first to admit that he writes really well, but I find it slow to read. For a novella it wasn't so bad though, and the premise of this story is brilliant as we see Scrooge rediscover the joys of Christmas. I was left feeling very Christmassy, which is an impressive feat when I read it on my lunchbreak at my retail job on a pre-Christmas Saturday!
