Book Review - Another Christmas Carol
About the Book
Charles Dickens left us with the notion that Ebenezer Scrooge was "better than his word and became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man as the good old city knew." Another Christmas Carol, by author Lee E. Woodard, picks up where Dickens left off. This story chronicles the life and times of Scrooge from the point of his reclamation throughout the balance of his life. As the trials and tribulations of everyday life in Victorian London come alive, Woodard's continuing story highlights Scrooge's interaction with the Cratchit family and the other wonderful characters Dickens created. As Scrooge attempts to spread his newfound happiness, he is forced to deal with painful parts of his past and must once again connect with the spirit world to fulfill his destiny. What was true in Dickens' original classic work is true yet again. Relive the joy of the familiar characters as they grow up, grow old, and live out their lives.
My Take on the Book
In the first book we are left to wonder what happened to Mr. Scrooge. This book takes up the story of Scrooge and brings him to life again. Though the story itself was short, it was a fun and compelling read that brings you back into Scrooge's life and you get to experience some of the painful parts of his life so that he can truly be what Dickens had in store for him at the end of his timeless tale. This was well written and a book that truly worked in my perspective. You get to be drawn further into the tale and get to know the characters that you met with Dickens on a deeper level.
