A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens So well known that it is quite familiar. It is obviously Dicken's at his most sentimental, but there are important subtleties that are cut out of most adaptations and the language is beautiful.

The book virtually invented the modern version of Christmas, so you can blame Dickens for that. If we compare it to Dickens' oeuvre as a whole, it is low to middling.
