Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol

One of the cases when I only read a writing as it’s so often alluded to that I want to find out first-hand what the allusions are about. In fact it’s not so bad, especially if perceived as a story for children, so that far from intending to ever read it again, I don’t regret having done it once. Occasionally Dickens even made me smile (which I think he failed to do in The Pickwick Papers), and though the story drags now and then, it’s reasonably short for a 19th-century book, and so are these passages.
