Charles Dickens was an English writer. Born on 7th February 1812, his writings are considered as a social critic. He worked in a factory after his father was thrown in a debtors prison. His novel A Christmas carol is by far the most popular.
His other novels are olive twist, David Copperfield and Bleak house. Many of his novels were written in weekly or monthly instalments.
The setting of this novel is London. The era is victorian. This book is about Ebenezer Scrooge. Money is the only thing that matters to Scrooge in life. He is visited by ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet to come. After this, his whole outlook towards life is changed. He sees where he went wrong and tries to correct himself.
I felt this was a story of hope for all people who are like Scrooge
