“A Christmas Carol” Alternatives
For those readers who are all Christmas Carol-ed out, but still need a little Dickens in their life for the holiday, I give you:
- The Chimes (1844)
- The Cricket on the Hearth (1845)
- The Battle of Life (1846)
- The Haunted Man and the Ghost’s Bargain (1848)
Since A Christmas Carol (1843) was so popular, Dickens continued writing Christmas stories. These are his other four major Christmas books, which contain similar themes to the Carol. Merry Christmas, and enjoy reading!
