A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas, commonly known as A Christmas Carol, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843 and illustrated by John Leech. A Christmas Carol opens on a bleak, cold Christmas Eve in London, seven years after the death of Ebenezer Scrooge's business partner, Jacob Marley. Scrooge, an ageing miser, dislikes Christmas and refuses a dinner invitation from his nephew Fred-the son of Fan, Scrooge's dead sister. He turns away two men who seek a donation from him to provide food and heating for the poor and only grudgingly allows his overworked, underpaid clerk, Bob Cratchit, Christmas Day off with pay to conform to the social custom.That night Scrooge is visited at home by Marley's ghost, who wanders the Earth entwined by heavy chains and money boxes forged during a lifetime of greed and selfishness. Marley tells Scrooge that he has a single chance to avoid the same fate: he will be visited by three spirits and must listen or be cursed to carry much heavier chains of his own.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a novella that was first published in 1843. It is a book that you can read in under two hours, which is unlike many books written by Charles Dickens. He used his books as social criticisms for what was going on in his world.A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a tightfisted, mean-spirited, man, the kind of person who rains on your parade with his sour disposition, always complaining and finding fault with everyone. The story starts on Christmas Eve, and we learn from the narrator that Scrooge's partner, Jacob Marley, is dead as a doornail - he died seven years ago.His clerk, Bob Cratchit, is copying letters in another room, and Scrooge has the door open so that he can make sure that his employee is not using logs to warm up his room. His nephew, Fred visits to wish him a Merry Christmas, and to invite him over for Christmas dinner. As usual, Scrooge declines the invitation because he is a grouch who wants no part of Christmas. What happens to someone why they would become like Scrooge?Ebenezer Scrooge is so tightfisted that he resents having to pay Bob for not working Christmas day. Before he departs for the day, two men who are described as portly are fundraising to feed the hungry and poor, but Scrooge has some very harsh and cruel words for them, and they leave his office without a donation. When he is about to open the door to his home, the door knocker is transformed momentarily into the ghostly face of his dead business partner, Marley. Before he can make too much of what he is seeing, the apparition disappears and he sees the door knocker again. The reader knows what is going to come next.Buy, Read, Review and Share your reading your experience in the below comments section.

Over 150 years after its original composition, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol continues to delight readers. The figure of Ebenezer Scrooge has become a cultural icon, and Tiny Tim's "God Bless Us Every One" is as familiar as "Merry Christmas." It is not surprising that Dickens' "ghostly little book," as he called it, has proved popular with playwrights and screenwriters. In everything from elegant literary treatments to animated musicals, the role of Scrooge has been essayed by actors from George C. Scott to Mr. Magoo. This critical account of the story's history and its various adaptations examines first the original writing of the story, including its political, economic, and historical context. The major interpretations are analyzed within their various media: stage, magic lantern shows, silent film, talkies, and television. Dickens' other, lesser known Christmas stories, like "The Cricket on the Hearth," are also examined and compared to the immortal Carol. Finally, a complete annotated filmography of all film and television productions based on A Christmas Carol is included, with commentary on each version's loyalty to the original text. The book includes 25 previously unpublished photos as well as analysis of previously undocumented productions. The text includes a foreword by the distinguished film and literary scholar Edward Wagenknecht, a bibliography and an index.

The Battle of Life: A Love Story is a novel by Charles Dickens, first published in 1846. It is the fourth of his five "Christmas Books", coming after The Cricket on the Hearth and followed by The Haunted Man.It is noteworthy in that it is the only one out of the five books that does not have any use of supernatural elements. It bears the greatest resemblance to The Cricket on the Hearth in two aspects: that it is not a social novel and that it is resolved with a romantic twist. As is typical with Dickens, the ending is a happy one, and some might argue an overly happy one.
