"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens

In this book of excitement the main character, Scrooge, who is acomplete grouch (especially at Christmas) is visited by the ghost of hisdead business partner who is there to warn him. The Ghost tells himthat he will be visited by three more ghosts. And they take him on ajourney through Christmas Past, Present, and Future to see the ups ofChristmas and the downs of the way he is living to try to save him andmany others from himself, and his huge Bah Humbug Attitude. This book isan eye opener and a sensation.
Dickens sets his novella in this the Christmas period to show thetrue meaning of sharing, giving and receiving. Through hisrepresentation of Scrooge, Dickens wants the reader to learn from hismiserable personality and to encourage others to change their ways too.It seems that the reason why he wanted to do this was because the richdidn’t appreciate the poor; during the Industrial Revolution the gapwidened between the rich and the poor – the poor being forgotten. Thisis why Scrooge then was visited by three different ghosts: the past,present and future. These ghosts highlight the need for Scrooge tochange and value the poor and recognise their needs.
