A Chrismas Carol - The Original Manuscript - Charles Dickens

I have known the story all my life, having watched it in different forms on TV and such, but had never read the actual book.  I decided this Christmas I would finally take the time.  And I am so glad I did!  This book, as is the case with most books, is much better than any adaption ever done, I am convinced of that.  It's magical, delightful, and with a humor I had not expected.  I realized about halfway through that it's really a sort of "intervention" for Ebeneezer.  Haha.  It works.  I highly recommend this story.  Always.
