A Christmas Carol
The holiday classic you don't want to miss!
In Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge is taken on an unforgettable journey to help gain his Christmas spirit. In the beginning, Scrooge has a horrible attitude towards life and Christmas. As I kept reading the book, his angry demeanor unraveled and the reader got to find out what events occurred to make Scrooge the way he is. Also, When Dickens used strong figurative language and descriptions to write the story, readers' minds are free to interpret the book and create their own images. Lastly, It was incredibly entertaining to read about the different characters' attitudes towards Scrooge and what attributed to why the character acted that way. Some of the characters really surprised me! For example, Scrooge's employee, Bob Cratchit, showed sympathy and kindness towards his boss when his family didn't. To conclude,
A Christmas Carol is a masterpiece made up of beautifully composed language, incredibly sculpted characters and the classic story of spirit and sacrifice.
A time when Scrooge sacrificed something was when he had to let go all familiarity and comfort of his past life in order to become a better person. A time when I sacrificed something was when I gave up my room so that another actor could have a place to sleep. This event was this past summer when I was in the teaser trailer of the movie, "A Good Hunter."
