About the Book

An allegorical novella descibing the rehabilitation of bitter, miserly businessman Ebenezer Scrooge. The reader is witness to his transformation as Scrooge is shown the error of his ways by the ghost of former partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future. The first of the Christmas books (Dickens released one a year from 1843–1847) it became an instant hit.

First Sentence

Mithra, Saturn, fairies and witches, Druids with cruel knives, the Celtic goddess Strenia, Mari Lwyd of Wales, and the Lord of Misrule: the year is haunted, as our lives are, by powerful spirits.
