Heartwarming

11 people found this helpful.

By H. M. Holt
The third of Mr Dickens’ Christmas Books and much less gloomy than The Chimes. A gentle story about marriage, love and fidelity; Dickens left social criticism to one side for this one. He wanted The Cricket to be ‘… a vein of glowing, hearty, generous, mirthful, beaming references in everything to Home, and Fireside.’

Dickens Short Story

I enjoyed this book. It is a little slow to start and, at first, seems to have a rambling story-line but suddenly begins to make sense and the ending is very satisfying. There were one or two typos in this edition (hence only 4 stars) but this did not detract from the pleasure of reading it.

Nicely twisted tale.

Kept me reading again. One of Dickens short stories but none the less as rich as ever I could feel the cold, and then the warmth.

Beautiful tale

By Laura of Lurking
This charming classic tale is about family, love and friendship. It covers all the universal themes with some mild twists and heart warming writing. It is a hard book to categorise, each clump of pages seem to come from a different genre, but the end effect is lovely.

Delightful

For the first five or six pages I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy this book and nearly gave it up. So glad I didn’t. It’s a short book so the story-line is not too involved which makes it a good book to read between more substantial books. Even though it is short, it is packed with Dicken’s brilliant characters and humour with a conclusion that is not too obvious. A delightful read.

Enjoyable seasonal fluff

 on 20 December 2014
By Book Critic
Over-egged with sentimentality, even for Dickens. A little disappointing: very predictable; I thought there’s be a touch more magic in it. I can see why it’s not become a classic, but then, A Christmas Carol was an awfully hard act to follow. Comfort-reading, certainly, and pleasant-enough reading for the season.

Who wouldn’t be delighted to find the public domain list of FREE classic literature. This is fantastic. All the titles I’ve always wanted to read and for free – this is my kind of kindle heaven. I love the way they arrive on your kindle, they’re so quick, it’s like magic. Thank you public domain!

Sweet!

This is a divinely lovely book about John Peerybingle and his wife Dot. They had been married a year, and had a darling baby,but then John started to suspect an affair…
