A Christmas Carol


There are few better opening lines in all of literature.

I do not grow tired of this book, and feel to this end – at least with myself – Dickens has achieved his purported aim:

"I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it."
