Praise for The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge
“I have great affection for A Christmas Carol and old Ebenezer Scrooge . . . [and] was thoroughly charmed by Lovett’s clever, merry, and, yes, convincingly Dickensian reimagining of this Victorian tale. . . . The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge will help you keep Christmas well, all over again.” —USA Today
“Charlie Lovett has a flair for creating new adventures for familiar characters, and his The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge will make you love Dickens and “A Christmas Carol” once again. . . . Lovett . . . brings humor and heart to characters who don’t possess much of either. We even find Scrooge reading Dickens throughout the story. Social concerns such as poverty, hunger, and the ignorance of the austere were Dickens-worthy issues that Lovett forces the reader to confront. He shines a light on the ripples of human kindness that can change whole societies and manages to entertain the reader with every turn of the page.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Lovett has written a delightful sequel to Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. . . . Told in the style of Dickens with a sly wit, this is an excellent companion to the original Christmas classic.” —Library Journal
“Consider this book as one to drop in stockings by the fireplace or give as a gift to those who already know one person can make a difference in the lives others, or to those who need such a reminder . . . an enjoyable literary excursion.” —Durham Herald-Sun
A Parade Magazine Book for Every Stocking pick
“When we last heard from Mr. Scrooge, he was bursting with Christmas cheer. Here, author Charlie Lovett picks up the story (ghosts and all) of what happens 20 years later." —Parade Magazine
“Charlie Lovett has found his niche in writing novels that combine his passion for classic English literature with his gifts as a storyteller . . . Lovett has delivered a charming and memorable addition to the Christmas tradition.”—Chapter 16
Praise for First Impressions

“[First Impressions] is, at its heart, a love letter to fiction—not just for its writers, but also for its readers.” —Washington Post

Praise for The Bookman’s Tale
“Lovett tells his story with ease, charm and a faith in his characters that eventually draws them into our sympathies.” —USA Today

So when I first saw this book I passed it off completely. How could anyone write a sequel to A Christmas Carol? I finally downloaded a sample, and was pleasantly surprised. I bought it five minutes later, and highly recommend it.
It's more of a homage to Dickens and Scrooge than a sequel. Written in the same prose as the original, and borrowing heavily from Dickens other works, (as admitted by the author), it becomes a joyful continuation of Scrooge paying it forward to all those he cares most about. If you enjoy the original story, then by all means, read this book.
Bravo Mr. Lovett, Bravo........
There were also a lot of Christmas spirit to help get me in the mood for the holidays as well, which was exactly what I needed to get me ready for the holiday season!
I have been a big fan of Charlie Lovett’s works…..he always picks a classic story and expands on it in some way which I love. He also tries to always maintain the integrity of the author’s prose. In this book, Lovett really stuck with Dickens’s style, it made the reader feel like they were reading an extension of the Dickens’s classic.
There were times when his writing style was so much like Dickens’s that I forgot it was a modern writer! Lovett’s love of Dickens was evident in this story, so well done!
The hard copy of this book is magnificent! There are illustrations to share with younger readers and older readers alike. I don’t know about you, but I know a lot of families that read A Christmas Carol aloud each year as a tradition and there are always little illustrations to turn and show the audience, and this book has the same! I loved the hard copy edition!
If you are looking for a quick read that will take you back to the days of Christmas past with your favorite bah humbug then this is the perfect story for you! It will kindle all kinds of holiday feelings and remind you of the importance of Christmas….not to mention the fact that is’s reminiscent of A Christmas Carol it made me a little nostalgic as well. I will also be hosting a giveaway for this book that you don’t want to miss out on!
You read that right - further adventures. Lovett imagines what might have occurred after Scrooge was visited by the three ghosts and changed his outlook on Christmas - and life - in Charles Dickens' book A Christmas Carol.
Well, Scrooge is celebrating year round - wishing everyone he meets a Merry Christmas each day of the year. But those who benefitted from Scrooge's change of heart twenty years ago have also lost their way. Partner Bob Cratchit is a workaholic, nephew Freddie ignores the plight of those around him and Scrooge's creditors can't see the human side of his largess, only the debts. So one summer's day, Scrooge calls upon the ghosts to help them as they did him so many years ago.
Lovett writes in the style of Dickens (sometimes employing phrasing and referencing Dickens' other works) to recreate the tenor, tone and message of A Christmas Carol.
The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge is a lovely reminder that "...scores and hundreds understood the ways of wealth and money and even of philanthropy, but their hearts lacked the true wealth of love, of family, of Christmas joy, which, he now saw, might have been theirs all the year round."
The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge is a quick little one night read. Guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit - hopefully year round!
