Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

I thought I didn’t like Dickens . . .

A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens

Past experience told me I don’t enjoy Dickens, but I have to reevaluate that now. Even though numerous viewings of various adaptations meant I knew all about the ghostly visitations in A Christmas Carol, the original story when (finally) read still managed to awe, thrill and delight me. I’m not quite ready to go back and retry one of his novels, but Dickens has several other Christmas stories so I plan to read another one next year.
