More About the Author

One of the grand masters of Victorian literature, Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and "slave" factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

This e published version of "A Christmas Carol" is beautifully illustrated and an absolute joy to read. This is the first time I read this book. I expected a revision of Hollywood's version of this story. Obviously, no movie can do justice to any book or novel; this book is no exception. What is excellent about this version is that it gives a brief history of the historical background that Dickens' wrote his work in and the history of this timeless classic. There may be a minor ( and I mean minor issue) on two of the illustrations: Bob Cratchit carrying Tiny Tim on his shoulders and Scrooge raising his salary. The Kindle Fire version of all the illustrations are recreated perfectly. They are partially duplicated on the top third portion and look like the top third of the illustration is above the the whole of the image in the Kindle 3G Keyboard version. I think that the publisher should look into this. This is no reason to avoid purchasing this version. Again, this version is excellent!

There is not exta narration through out which I LOVE! It gives you extras in the front of the book with a lil history, but they left the story untouched which is great. There is just enough illustration to give you a start, but otherwise it leaves the rest to your imagination

A Christmas Carol (1843) by Charles Dickens 5 stars★ and a favorite♥

A Christmas Carol has been a book I've been trying to read for the past few Christmases. I'd start it, but then never finished it. Third times was a charm. I've finally finished it and am glad I read it. It was a good read and now a favorite.

"For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself."

I really liked Charles Dickens's "Ghost of an Idea." I've watched many different movies that have some form of this story. I liked reading this just as much as watching one of the movie adaptions. This was my first Dickens book that I've read. His writing style in this was poetic I thought. The story is short and broken off in Staves. I think my favorite part was the description of Christmas Day activity during Stave Three: The Second of Three Spirits.

I'll definitely be rereading this in the future and will try to read some of Dickens's other books too. I enjoyed this free kindle illustrated version. It was a nice touch to see the pictures that were made for this original tale.

I like the illustrations that came with the book. It is just as I expected based on the numerous movies based on the book.

This classic novel was totally enjoyable! Although I have seen and loved several movie versions of the story, I had not read the novel since I was a young schoolgirl. Having watched my favorite version of the movie, I got the bug to reread the book, so I ordered the Kindle edition. It was wonderful! The illustrations were beautifully done, and the book was a fun and quick read. It doesn't get much better than this - a Christmas classic, which takes only a short time to read, added to my enjoyment of the holiday season. Five stars for this classic!

Who does not know the story? This is my fourth time through A Christmas Carol and each time reveals something new. I am currently in the midst of reading God and Charles Dickens: Recovering the Christian Voice of a Classic Author by Gary Colledge, and this time through the Christian references were much more poignant. The illustrations in this edition were a very nice addition, and it is nice to see a standard Kindle edition with them. The book would always get 5 stars, and the Kindle version does as well.

As a kindle owner, I've learned to be a bit wary of free editions of classic works as well as various "illustrated" editions. I was so very pleasantly surprised with this little gem. The table of contents is active and easy to navigate. The illustrations are faithfully and beautifully rendered and placed properly within the story. I hope the price remains "free" on this edition so that more readers can enjoy this timeless Christmas tale as Dickens intended. Cheers all around!

There's nothing like reading an unabridged classic. Scrooge is uglier than any T.V. rendering but that makes his salvation even more remarkable. The introduction explains how the original story was published and why it has "staves" instead of chapters. Even in the Kindle form, the illustrations are beautifully rendered.
