6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Professor Rose McDermott on December 19, 2001
Format: Paperback
I can count the number of books I have read in one sitting on the fingers of one hand, and this book is one of them. This magnificant novel takes off where Dicken's A Christmas Carol left off. This beautifully written and fast paced book presents the compelling story of God's trial for the soul of Ebenezer Scrooge, offering Tiny Tim as his defending attorney. Skillfully drawning upon meticulous historical research, Bueno de Mesquita establishes the counterintuitive argument that perhaps Scrooge, and thus Dickens, may have been misunderstood. Part mystery concering the outcome of the trial, part morality tale about the true meaning of kindness in life, and part fascinating historical education, this book will be a delight for fans of the original Dicken's book as well as for those who have never read it, and can thus approach this book on its own terms. This novel cleverly encourages readers not only to reevaluate Scrooge, but also inspires us to rethink the critical judgments that we often make too easily of others. This is a book that stays with you long after you read it. Scrooge reminds us that there are many ways to be the best person we can, and as many ways to bring out the best in those we care about.

Format: Paperback
A book for the holidays, if you're a little bit wicked. The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge recounts Scrooge's attempt to get out of Purgatory, with Tiny Tim as his lawyer! If you've got an economics or political history bent, or if you're an English lit major, a Dickens fan, or just stuck with a smartass sense of humor, you will enjoy this one.(Caveat, a lot of adjectives, but, then the same might be said for Dickens, the dickens!)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Buttercup sings to the Captain of HMS Pinafore, "Things are seldom what they seem, Skim milk masquerades as cream." This is what Bruce Bueno de Mesquita would have the reader believe about the reviled Ebenezer Scrooge. In a dramatic trial, with Tiny Tim acting for the defense and Professor Blight serving as the righteous prosecutor, the reader in the jury box is asked to reconsider long-held beliefs about the alleged miser and merciless employer immortalized in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. For this page-turner novella, a knowledge of Dickens is helpful but not required. In the end, you decide if Scrooge deserves a place in Heaven, or elsewhere. A perfect Christmas stocking stuffer and a great gift any time of year.
