    Every year, during the holidays, I watch one version or another, A Christmas Carol. Because it’s such a huge holiday favorite of mine, I will sometimes watch more than one, depending on how many of my favorite versions are on television. I love the 1999 TV adaptation with Patrick Stewart and I also think A Diva’s Christmas Carol is a great movie! Not very many years ago, I bought the book when I found it for sale in a thrift store. I loved it! Incredible story! What was even more awesome was discovering just how faithful the 1999 film version was! I’ll never stop watching the movies, but reading the book will be a Christmas tradition from now on!

    There is so much more to the story than you can get from even the best theatrical productions. More complexity and deeper meaning than can be portrayed in just a few minutes.

    I have seen the movie countless times. But this year I thought to read the book. It’s been a worthy decision for sure.

    What a pleasure, what a treat to read A Christmas Carol aloud the fortnight leading up to Christmas to our 7 year old son. The language is fun and a bit odd for him, the pictures interesting, and he knows the jist already from the muppets version, so it was just a real pleasure for us parents to experience all the original language and not just the most quotable quotes! Lovely!!
