Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he choose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

So begins Charles Dickens's timeless tale of brotherly love, charity, and redemption. A Christmas Carol has transcended generations, captivating new readers and rekindling hearts 160 years after its first publication. With an unforgettable cast of characters, it beautifully recounts Ebenezer Scrooge's life-changing encounters with four ghostly visitors. Traveling through Christmases Past, Present, and Yet to Come, he is transformed in one night from a hard-hearted and insensitive miser to a generous and caring man.
