This book contains two other Christmas themed novellas besides the author's most famous work. The Haunted Man is a darker and more subtle take on the topic than A Christmas Carol. ( )

I feel somehow compelled to read A Christmas Carol every December. Enough said. ( )

4093 A Christmas Carol and Other Stories [The Chimes; The Cricket on the Hearth] by Charles Dickens (read 13 Nov 2005) Since I have a plan to read all of Dickens and since this book shows up on some 'best books' lists I decided to read it, even tho I have read parts of it often. The Carol is only 106 pages and it was fun to read it straight through. The other two stories are less memorable. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375758887, Paperback)

An immediate bestseller when it was first published in December 1843, A Christmas Carol has endured ever since as a perennial Yuletide favorite. Charles Dickens's beloved tale about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who comes to know the meaning of kindness, charity, and goodwill through a haunting Christmas Eve encounter with four ghosts, is a heartwarming celebration of the spirit of Christmas.

This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition also includes two other popular Christmas stories by Dickens: The Chimes,in which a man, persuaded by hypocritical cant that the poor deserve their misery, is shown what his pessimistic resignation might lead to in a vision conjured by the pealing of bells, and The Haunted Man, Dickens's last Christmas tale, which features one of his great comic families, the Tetterbys.
