A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens book cover with water and sunset

1. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Greedy old miser Ebenezer Scrooge despises Christmas and the spirit of giving. He only gives his underpaid employee Bob Cratchit off in accordance with societal norms.

When the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, visits him – bound by chains and money boxes – Marley suggests a similar fate for him along with a single chance at redemption.

The ghosts of Christmas past, present, and yet-to-come haunt Scrooge, forcing him to witness numerous Christmas celebrations.

It is the meager festivities at the Cratchit residence, though, where the ghosts introduce him to Tiny Tim, Cratchit’s seriously ill – yet, jovial son – who encourages Scrooge to reconsider his life choices.

One of the most famous classic Christmas books for adults, A Christmas Carol embodies the spirit of Christmas and is perfect if you enjoy time travel novels and ghost stories.
