Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol, Burlington Books
It´s Christmas Eve in London but mean, old Ebenezer Scrooge ins´t celebrating. In his opinion, Christmas is “a waste of time and money”. That night, he has a strange experience: four ghosts visit Scrooge and show him his past, present and future. Gradually, Scrooge begins to understand that he has to change.
We think that this book is amazing, because it teaches us how we can change with people´s help. It also has a different point of view: the view of a mean old man that hates Christmas. It´s easy to read because it is a mixture of narrative and dialogue. There are several secondary characters but the main ones are Scrooge and the three ghosts: one from the past, another one from the present and the third one from the future.
ASSESMENT: We give this book 9 points.
RECOMMENDATION: We like this book and recommend it to people aged 13 and older.
