    By The Literary Phoenix
    I hated this story. It felt gloomy, unoriginal, and enraging. Most of Dickens’ stories discuss classism, but this particular tale is made mostly of pompous men telling poor folk they have no right to live. It was frustrating and over-stated. It took up so much of the story that it ceased to be a story and became a ranting slap in the face. And the ending, after A Christmas Carol, was utterly predictable. I got this book for free Christmas 2015 from Audible, but I don’t think I would have picked it up otherwise. Studies of Victorian literature and Dickensians should definitely pick up this story, but for the average reader, I’d go with A Christmas Carol and stop there.
