ELISAS PERSONAL OPINION


In my opinion, this book is very interesting because its a story with many values, like
happiness, kindness and others that are too important for people. With A Christmas Carol we
can know all about the real spirit in Christmas.
A part from that, this is a very common book. All people know the story. But there are many
adaptations and all of them are different. For me the best one has been this one because tell the
true story about A Christmas Carol. Its the original one.
I like a lot this book and my favourite part it was the scene when Tiny Tim appear in the last
part of the book with Scrooge, who is almost a good person.
There arent parts that I dont like it, but if I have to choose one Ill choose the scene that Tiny
Tim die and when Scrooge was a mean man.
In conclusion, I think this book its important that all people read it because its a very good
story about Christmas. This story will be interesting for children too, because they can see how
the people will be and learn the most important values about live and about Christmas.

BRBARAS PERSONAL OPINION
I already knew this book and in my opinion, the story is very curious and entertaining. I
think that because the story tell us how a selfish man becomes a very good person.
But the most curious is the presence and the aspect of the trhee ghosts. And the aspect of
that ghosts caught my attention, specially the ghost of future because is a dark shadow.
Like
the
dark
future
of
Scrooge.

The story transmit a lot of importants values like be a good person, hapiness or other
things
that
we
should
consider
for
a
better
living.
And in conclusion, I think this book is too easy to read and this is important because the
story should be known to all.
