Charles Dickens has yet to write A Christmas Carol or reach any real level of fame but he is known for solving a murder or two. Dickens and his fiance happen upon a man who has fallen out of a window but Dickens believes something feels off. Throughout the story, we meet such characters as Emmanuel Screws who owns a countinghouse along with Mr. Harley (the man who fell out the window). The countinghouse also has a dependable employee named Cratchit. We see the development of all the beloved characters in A Christmas Carol come to life.
I was looking for a Christmas story to help get me in the holiday mood and I thought this one would help, especially since it was so different than your regular holiday story. While the premise of the story was interesting, I didn't find it to be enough to put me in the holiday mood or hold my attention for long periods of time. The story was slow going and there were a few times I was not sure I was going to finish but I appreciated the storyline and the ending was decently done.
