December’s book club choice was Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. I’d never read the story, but had seen soooo many plays, cartoons and films that I felt I knew the story inside out. In fact, I do, but I was delighted by how Dicken’s prose is ever-fresh. Reading A Christmas Carol was pure delight. The words, characters and tone delight. Dicken’s immediately created an insider bond with me. Reading the book far exceeded the pleasure of any of the films or plays I’d seen, though each production entertained me.
