THE LIFE OF CHARLES DICKENS

CRITIQUE

Critique on "A Christmas  Carol"

Dickens is, of course, a wonderful author and earlier generations read everything that he wrote.  Today, however, you read an obligatory novel or two in High School, breath a sigh of relief that's over and then blithely ignore him along with the rest of the ancients.  But, as a reacquaintance with A Christmas Carol will remind you, he remains pretty accessible and his novels are often quite fun.  What's more, there's even a Reading Version (available online, just click the hypertext) of the story that Dickens condensed himself for his numerous public readings of the tale.  It's perfect for reading aloud to the family.
 
 
 
I feel the same way about the book. It is very inspirational to readers and listeners.  I also feel like it is a great book for the whole family to read and share with others.
