Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Charles John Huffam Dickens was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and one of the most popular of all time. He created some of literature's most iconic characters, with the theme of social reform running throughout his work. The continuing popularity of his novels and short stories is such that they have never gone out of print. His work has been praised for its mastery of prose, and for its teeming gallery of unique personalities, by writers such as George Gissing and G. K. Chesterton, though the same characteristics have prompted others, such as Henry James and Virginia Woolf, to criticize him for sentimentality and implausibility.

By Forrest G. Cooper on May 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
I guess I expected too much for the price, but this 'reprint' is a poor excuse of a scan of the original 1914 edition. I can almost forgive the illustrations being only in black and white, but it's A.I. Keller's color illustrations that ARE the reason for the reprint. Are they not? How many copies (with excellent illustrations) can you buy of this five star novella in print today? Hundreds! At least do a clean scan of the illustrations. It looks like they were snapped with a Kodak Instamatic through a dirty aquarium. I might also add you need to include the last 173 words of the story in your 'reprint'. My copy finished with "and as good a". I'm sorry. I just don't sleep well at night without Tiny Tim observing "God Bless Us, Every One!"
Oh,yeah...put the "digitized" title on the spine of the 'reprint'. Merry Christmas.

this volume was written up as a reproduction of a 1900s edition of Christmas Carol. the reprints of the plates were pretty awful, and the last few paragraphs of the book -- the linchpin of the whole darn story -- are missing, like the book was badly put together, or they just stopped when they ran out of paper. i got to the end and the last paragraphs are not even in the book. all in all, a disappointment, not for the story but for the edition.

The item I received was new as described. The book was in excellent condition. There was just one problem, the book was missing THE LAST PAGE OF THE STORY.
That was very Bah Humbug. Check the products before shipping.
Sincerely, C Hurtado

The product photos depict a hardcover version of "A Christmas Carol." What I received was a softcover print-on-demand version of this title from CreateSpace (an Amazon print-on-demand service).

As I specifically need a hardcover edition that looks authentic to the time period of original publication, I returned the item.

I have no issues with CreateSpace or Amazon print-on-demand. However, that service was not what I believed I was purchasing and is not what Amazon has depicted in the item photos.
