    I was always averse to Dickens, thinking that his writing would be dry And I have been wonderfully surprised to find such humor and wit in his writing I absolutely love the characters of Joe and Pip, and I find Dickens sense of humor contemporary and throughly enjoyable.

    Of course we read this one in our group awhile ago, but I just found a great article for those of you who were with us back then, or have read it before Thought you might enjoy Dickens vs DarwinA Question of WorldviewDecember 28, 2009Two of the most famous books in the Western canon turned 150 years old in 2009 On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, and A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.But these anniversaries were celebrated in vastly different ways While Darwin s book was honored around the globe with films and websites and much , relatively few people took notice that Dickens s book had reached the same milestone.Why the difference My colleague Gina Dalfonzo, in an article on BreakPoint Online, suggests that one reason might be the difference in worldview Gina points out that Origin of Species is built on Darwin s materialistic principles, while A Tale of Two Cities takes a traditional and biblical view of things.It s easy to see how our educational and media elite would gravitate toward the work that faithfully reflects their own vi...

    No need to review this book It is an icon of western culture In my family, it was read aloud every year the week before Christmas until I left home It was probably the single most formative book in my life.The most significant piece of the book.in my memory comesat the end of the 3rd Stave The chimes were ringing the three quarters past eleven at the moment Forgive me if I am not justified in what I ask, said Scrooge, looking intently at the Spirit s robe, but I see something strange, and not belonging to yourself, protruding from your skirts Is it a foot or a claw It might be a claw, for the flesh there is upon it, was the Spirit s sorrowful reply Look here From the foldings of its robe, it brought two children, wretched, abject, frightful, hideous, miserable They knelt down at its feet, and clung upon the outside of its garment O Man look here Look, look, down here exclaimed the Ghost.They were a boy and girl Yellow, meagre, ragged, scowling, wolfish but prostrate, too, in their humility Where graceful youth should have filled their features out, and touched them with its freshest tints, a stale and shrivelled hand, like that of age, had pinched and twisted them, and pulled them into shreds.Scrooge started back, appalled Having them shown to him in ...

    While my husband was donning his paramedic uniform on Dec 23rd evening, I cued up Bugs Bunny s adaptation of Charles Dickens s Christmas Carol on our big screen so we could watch it together before he headed off for his nightshift As we watched this short youtube cartoon together, I realized that I had never actually read this classic Soon after I kissed my husband off to work, I logged on to and downloaded Dickens s classic story on my iPad s kindle for free and started reading it immediately As I was reading it s preface, I HAVE endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it Their faithful Friend and Servant, C D December, 1843 , I realized that I actually had Dickens s book sitting on the shelf of one my home libraries It didn t take me long to find it and cuddle with it beside the crackling logs in our fireplace The next morning, I welcomed my loving husband home from a quiet nightshift thank you God with a warm embrace, and we watched some of the 1984 film adaptation from youtube together We managed to watch up to the Ghost of Christmas Present before my husband needed to rest from his nightshift I was hooked on the story and endeavoured to read on from my book for a little while longer before guilt c...
