A Christmas Carol (English Edition) download gratisDoor: Charles Dickens
In his Ghostly little book, Charles Dickens invents the modern concept of Christmas Spirit and offers one of the world's most adapted and imitated stories. We know Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, not only as fictional characters, but also as icons of the true meaning of Christmas in a world still plagued with avarice and cynicism.

sympathieën voor A Christmas Carol (English Edition)
Fantastic. How have I managed to read so many terrific books this year? Full review here: http://www.stackedbooks.org/2011/10/e...
I decided to pick a few titles nominated for this years Orange Prize. This was one, and the one that looked the most typical and womanly. But I was pleasantly surprised by what it offered. Despite all the references to Mrs Beeton and household guides it was quirky and touching. I especially liked the sections that took us back to Delia's past, to learn how even women who don't get off to the greatest start can evolve into capable wives and mothers, while still never losing sense of individuality or self. And I can never resist even a passing nod to circus life.
In his top 10, great book, great movie!
