“For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas"
Confession time: I have never actually read any Dickens! Don't shoot me!
Over Christmas, I decided that I couldn't go into 2019 Dickens-less so I picked up the seasonal, A Christmas Carol. And you know what? I really enjoyed it. Not that it's much of a surprise, he is considered to be a pretty amazing writer...
I was actually quite surprised at how easy it was to read. I had assumed his prose would be quite difficult to relax into considering the time he wrote, but I confess, I was very wrong!
At the end of the day, Dickens doesn't really need to be reviewed again - but here it is anyway. Definitely, recommend as a festive read in Dec 2019.
