About The Book
"Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is a timeless classic that tells us
the story of a miserly, hateful man called Ebenezer Scrooge and his
journey towards the path of redemption.
The story revolves around Scrooge’s hatred for Christmas and those
who are not as fortunate as him. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is
visited by three spirits who take him on a journey through time and
help him realise the kind of person he has become over time, and
the impact of his actions on those around him.
A Christmas Carol brings out the spirit of Christmas through a
story of self-realisation, making readers believe that there truly is
such a thing as a Christmas miracle."
About Charles Dickens
Born on 7 February 1812, in Portsmouth, Charles Dickens was one
of the greatest novelists of the Victorian era. He created some of the most intriguing
fictional characters in literature. The author's success began with the 1836
publication of the Pickwick Papers, following which he became an international celebrity.
Known for his humour, satire and incisive representation of society through his
characters, his literary triumphs include A Tale of Two Cities, David Copperfield, Oliver
Twist, and Great Expectations. A literary colossus of his time, he wrote 15 novels, 5 novellas, hundreds
of short stories and non-fiction articles. He even performed for Queen Victoria in
1851. Such was the charisma of the author that the term Dickensian, is still used to
describe situations reminiscent of his narratives. Literary stalwarts like Leo Tolstoy, George Orwell and G.K. Chesterton admired him for his comedy, prose style and
realism. The quintessential Victorian author died in 1870, and was buried in Westminster
