Book Club//December: A Christmas Carol

Another really cool week passed with book club where we read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Basically the story centers around Ebeneezer Scrooge haunted by his old business partner and ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Some of the off topic things we discussed [WARNING SPOILERS]:
  • A character change as dramatic as Scrooge's is often for the worse, and is often not something that keeps for the rest of their life. However, life changing models like this sometimes have profound impacts.
  • The ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future are a lot more creepy than we would actually think. The lockboxes on Marley were nice touch of symbolism.
  • Tiny Tim isn't as central a figure as we thought he was going to be (thank you to the Disney movie).
Book club was really fund because we also got to watch the movie of it later at a friend's house. There was pizza, blankets, and cinnamon rolls. Overall just a fun atmosphere.
