A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
1261 posts | 920 read | 7 reading | 99 to read
Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

A bit late for #twofortuesday:

1) the tagged book is my most recent 5-star read. The book must be well written, hard to put down, and elicits an emotional response from me (except anger for being poorly written or edited). The tagged book made me LOL, a shocking surprise and the writing was superb!

2) No because I rarely reread books and normally only do so if I loved it in the first place. But have changed ratings after thinking about a book.

One of my few Christmas traditions. Complaints from the kids at first, but now the eldest has requested “more books by that guy with the ghosts” 🙌🏻 (“that I can do!” says the same mom who wrote her senior paper on Dickens). #MordecaiReads #morebookslessbullshit2019

#blameitonwintergames I started reading Dickens for points; ended up loving his writing! Ok so I tried to read David Copperfield as a child and it was a big fail. But I am ready to dig into all things Dickens. Sure, there are references and writing styles I don‘t get but the things I did were marvelous. A wonderful funny gorgeous #holidayread! #wintergames #tmskellington #24b42020 @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @jb72

TheAromaofBooks Tale of Two Cities is still my favorite Dickens. My mom and I really want to read David Copperfield this year (haven't read it since high school) and possibly The Pickwick Papers, which I've started probably 17 times and never finished! 2w

The last episode of a short series was my favourite. Ebenezer finally knows meaning of the Christmas life and love. It was amazing and great series to watch. I also liked that was a little scary. This version is not for children.

I‘ve been reading the tagged book for the first time. It‘s bitterly cold, so much so that Bob Crachit, who can‘t afford a coat, wears a comforter to work. I loved the book and highly recommend it. I always assumed it would be a difficult read but it was humorous and meaningful! #holidayread

So I thought I already knew the story of the grumpy old miser Ebenezer Scrooge and how, with the help of three spirits, he gets a second chance at figuring out what's important in life. But there's loads of stuff that the adaptations leave out, like Dickens's pointed criticisms of the politics of his day and the genuinely chilling part where Scrooge has to confront his own corpse. A great read for this time of year! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

There are some upon this earth of yours,” returned the Spirit, “who lay claim to know us, and who do their deeds of passion, pride, ill-will, hatred, envy, bigotry, and selfishness in our name, who are as strange to us and all our kith and kin, as if they had never lived. Remember that, and charge their doings on themselves, not us."

Short, heartwarming, and full of humor. Some of the language is a bit dated, but the moral is still as relevant as it was in the 1800s.
I still think the best screen version is the Muppet version 🎄

My Dad used to read us A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens every year when I was a kid. Now that he's gone I'm lucky to have other readers to listen to. The NYPL put on a live reading with Neil Gaiman with the sole remaining "prompt" copy of the tale, with Dickens' own markings for live readings. I took this picture from their website. https://www.nypl.org/blog/2014/12/19/podcast-neil-gaiman-christmas

Fridameetslucy Sending you a HUGE ty for this. I belong to a NYC Friends of Charles Dickens book group that meets once a month. We real one book a year and each month somebody facilitates a discussion of 10 chapters - this year its The Old Curiosity Shop and on Jan 4th I‘m facilitating a discussion of Dickens use of fairy tale motifs and a Jungian approach toward analyzing this story. Inviting any NYC Littens to be my guest 3w
ReadingEnvy @Fridameetslucy sounds great! 3w
Billypar Thanks for recommending this: I played it on Christmas with my family while my parents were cooking. I always get excited when certain lines come up - it's my favorite Christmas story by far. Great reading by Gaiman, though for some reason everyone assumed it was Alan Rickman narrating 😁 3w
