A Christmas Carol

Tough-O-Meter

Sure, there's a little bit of old timey language, and it's probably helpful to have a sense that without the charitable donations of Scrooge and other rich folks the poor people of the time would have no other means of financial support, but honestly, it's an uplifting, non-scary ghost story that we already all know and love. Easy to read, easy to get through, easy to understand, so sit back with a glass of eggnog and enjoy.
