A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens Great to read the original finally, after seeing so many movie versions. My favourite movie version is still the one with Alistair Sim, and it is also the one that sticks closest to the original, especially the dialog. Interesting that Bob Cratchitt is not named in the book until Scrooge and the second spirit make a visit to his home.
