Just not my cup of tea really.
S. Oldacres
This isn't a review, just a heads up; the book and Kindle editions are completely different.

The characters are memorable and colorful, exaggerated yet poignantly familiar.

This printing by General Books is unreadable. Apparently it's scanned from another printing without any proofreading. There are random symbols, missing words, misspelled words and large missing parts of the stories that were supposed to be in this book.

I picked this up just after Christmas because I wanted to re-read "A Christmas Carol." The two additional stories, "The Chimes" and "The Cricket on the Hearth," were new to me although I've read nearly all of the Dickens novels. Delightful! The usual Dickens themes - how human love and goodness can triumph over the evils of poverty, indifference, and avarice - abound. The characters are memorable and colorful, exaggerated yet poignantly familiar. What a great way to wind up the holiday season.

I was quite disappointed with this book.
All the Christmas issues of Household Words and All the Year Round were originally written by several contributing authors and that's the way I want to read them. When these stories were first collected in the Charles Dickens edition shortly before the author's death, only the chapters written by Dickens were included and that's the way they have come down to the reader ever since. I have been after a collection for some time now where these stories appear in their oroginal format, and when I saw all the authors mentioned in the titlle,I thought I had finally found it, only to find that it's just the same old thing again.

Dickens is always my favorite to settle into Fall with. This one is a collection of stories perfect for kicking off the winter reading season with. I can't wait now for the first crisp days, a fire in the woodstove, and these short stories and novellas. They are full of what we think of when we think Dickens. . .great characters and engaging stories that take you back in time, long ago and far away.If you want to read Dickens but not a whole novel, I recommend these.

This isn't a review, just a heads up; the book and Kindle editions are completely different.
The book version contains 8 stories and the Kindle version contains 21 totally different stories.
Amazon, can you fix this?

Also another wonderful book with more Christmas stories by Charles Dickens, learned so much about Christmas that we have forgotten and hope to restore those traditions next year. Also recommend it too.
