This book was on top of the library shelf for Choice Reads December. I randomly picked it up while I was waiting for my little one to finish her Playing. The initial few pages was interesting but the hero – one ‘Ebenezer Scrooge’ – was kind of boring and a non hero material. I was about to put it back, just then I saw a name Charles Dickens. Oh! ‘Its the one from Christmas Carol’ – I almost screamed in my head and put the book in my bag. By the way, I read Christmas Carol way back in 2010(Dec 3rd I finished it to be more specific!) , no wonder I forgot the world famous hero #lameexcuses 🙂
But apart from this initial excitement of finding a author and character in the same book, the book had nothing new to offer. Dragging and jumbling chapters, unimpressive characters and not-so-much of a mystery – all these pulls down the book. I would have rather read a Charles Dickens book. So gets a 3 from me.
