Mr. Dickens and His Carol

Mr. Dickens and His Carol is an ode to the story of how the greatest Christmas story was created. It is, of course, a work of art, but there were a lot of anecdotes and snippets from Dickens’s real life that will make you forget that it is fiction at times.

It was nostalgic, dark, humorous, and most of all, relatable. The stories and the scenes in the novel were as quirky as the real-life Dickens.

It’s amazing to me how a lot of the themes in the novel are similar to the original Christmas Carol, but every dialogue still hits close to home. It had been a while since I cried over a novel. This is a story of dreams, sadness, frustrations, and hope.

This book just raised my Christmas readings to three books now.
