A Christmas Carol (Classic Collection)
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I've watched many versions of this story, including the Barbie version (and that's my favorite) ;)
on Charles Dickens' novel, this classic collection was retold by Tony
Bradman. About a mean, tight-fisted hand man named Ebenezer Scrooge. One
day, a spirit of his partner who died 7 years ago, come to warn him
that three spirits will come and give him lessons so he won't be like
him, chained into a heavy chain made of cash-boxes, purses and padlocks.
Every time I saw the movie (any versions) I would always
touched by the lessons given by the spirits. From Scrooge past time,
present time, and future, he learns that his greed won't bring him
happiness. And his wealth won't get people to like him. And that in the
future, he would be alone with no one to take care of him, even on his
Scrooge decides to change his fate, and be nice to people around him. And he lives many happy years after that.
When I finish reading the book, I realize that it's too thin. Maybe (maybe) I would read the original version.
