Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 near Portsmouth where his father was a clerk in the navy pay office. The family moved to London in 1823, but their fortunes were severely impaired. Dickens was sent to work in a blacking-warehouse when his father was imprisoned for debt. Both experiences deeply affected the future novelist. In 1833 he began contributing stories to newspapers and magazines, and in 1836 started the serial publication of Pickwick Papers. Thereafter, Dickens published his major novels over the course of the next twenty years, from Nicholas Nickleby to Little Dorrit. He also edited the journals Household Words and All the Year Round. Dickens died in June 1870.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite nice, but not an exact reproduction of the original
By Alan on December 5, 2017
This is a nice version of A Christmas Carol, but I was hoping it would be a more accurate reproduction of the first printing. It has a printed hardcover, but not leather with gilded graphic and text like the first edition was. It also does not have the gilded page edges like the original. The biggest downfall is that the original illustrations are poor quality. Still nice overall.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality
By Amazon Customer on December 13, 2016
My review is for the item I received, not the book in general. The pictures of the item are not what I received. The pictures in this book look like blurry photocopies of an original. Extremely cheap product. I bought this item based on the pictures and amazing reviews, but apparently did not receive the same product. I purchased the book as a gift and would be embarrassed to give it. Returning immediately.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 4, 2018
This is a beautiful little book which exceeded my expectations greatly. It is just what I wanted, embossed, gold foiled (book titles and page edges), original illustrations by John Leech and original font. Mine came shrink wrapped in cellophane. The sticker on the back came off with a bit of care. I'm so happy with it I bought another for a Christmas gift 🎄☃️❤

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 4, 2018
Review of A Christmas Carol: With Original Illustrations in Full Colour. Pub: Suzeteo Enterprises.
I was looking for a hardback replacement for my battered old paperback edition. This looked like a quality edition from the photo. It isn't.
Despite the photo appearance, the cover is completely smooth and cold to the touch. The "gold" is printed yellow. The binding is stiff and looks likely to split with use. The whole thing looks and feels like a school book.
Inside, the paper is dazzling white and the print stark black. It is not comfortable to read. For some reason, the publishers have changed the original spacing of the punctuation. Although the original spacing looks odd to modern eyes, it spaces the text nicely, and the modernisation makes the text a bit cramped and seems to change the reading rhythm.
I won't be keeping it.

I also wanted to review the DELUXE EDITION Pub: Arcturus, which is vastly better and beautifully presented (and cheaper). Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't distinguish between different editions and won't let me post a separate review. The last four photos above are of that edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful Classic...
Reviewed in India on August 5, 2018
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens...!!!

Its a Classic fiction Story... which revolves around a person named Ebenezer Scrooge, The man only gives respect to money but no one else...!!!

At one point while describing Scrooge, Author writes like this "No warmth could warm, No wintry weather will chill him, No wind that blew was bitterer than he, No falling snow was more intent upon its purpose, No pelting rain less open to entreaty"

In this book, A situation comes where Scrooge should meet Three Spirits : The Spirit of past, present and Future. Now the question is whether these spirits able to change the attitude of Scrooge or not and what happens to Scrooge after meeting these three spirits...!!! One should read this book and learn for themselves...!!!

Its a wonderful classic... and what makes A Christmas carol Special is - "The Author : Charles Dickens" The way he express the story will leave readers speechless..!!!

I Strongly recommend one to buy this book, and the following once...

* A Christmas Carol
* Animal Farm
* The Time Machine
* Frankenstein
* 1984

Note : I bought this book from Finger print publishers, truly speaking this book by finger print publishers is not like the usual one they have published this book with love, I must say love.... because the quality of ages and printing says so...
