~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~My Thoughts:I haven't read or wanted to read any of Dicken's books before because I thought that they were all depressing and that I wouldn't like them. However I was really happy that I finally read one.This book is probably the lightest of Dicken's books, but it has a wonderful message! It is also pretty easy to read and I think it is a good book to start out with when reading Dickens. I'm sorta guessing, as I haven't read any of Dicken's other books yet. But it's the one I have started out with and I'm happy with it. It was a good tale of the true meaning Christmas and being kind to the poor. Character wise I liked Scrooge and seeing how he progressed as a character, growing in kindness. And I really liked Scrooge's nephew Fred, he just seemed really jolly :)
Cover Thoughts:I read the book with a different cover and didn't really like it. This one, however, I like because it's very nice :D And pretty.
