4.0 von 5 Sternen Classic Dickens in Abbreviated Form 21. Dezember 2014
Von N. Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I decided to read Dickens' Christmas pentalogy. I'd read A Christmas Carol. This story is set on New Year's Eve. It's similar to A Christmas Carol (and to two of the other three stories) in that it involves a revelation that comes in a dream. In this case, it has to do with Trotty the porter's doubts about his daughter's future. He's been listening to politicians hold forth on the worthlessness of the lower classes and he's starting to wonder whether they might be right.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Pleasant, confusing at times, full of character 18. Dezember 2015
Von M. Henderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Dickensian character, that is. Trotty Veck is a quintessential Dickensian character. The dreams or visions that Dickens describes confused me at times, but my reading may have been too disjointed. I suggest reading this tale all at once, in front of a New Year's Eve fireplace, without stopping.
Emotional and full of lessons, Dickens instructs the reader with the words and actions of his characters. Trotty Veck (Toby) is lovable and friendly, strong, weak, and most of all, humble. He's a little bit of the good and naïveté in all of us. He reminds me of Pickwick in his gentleness and Sam Weller in his humorous philosophy. Even though he sees ghosts, there is no humbug in him. Yet he manages to display the post-conversion gratefulness and hilarity of Ebenezer in 'A Christmas Carol'.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Happy New Year! 28. Dezember 2015
Von John Michael Strubhart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Every bit as charming as A Christmas Carol, this New Year's Eve tale reflects on the worth of people from all walks of life and the virtue of valuing even the seemingly least significant of them. Enjoy! And a very happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
3.0 von 5 Sternen New Year's Day and a Wedding 2. Januar 2016
Von Joseph - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Not Dickens' best, but still rather good. His writing here has a certain restless, almost hyper, quality. The action takes place over New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Dickens' satiric puncturing of the self-proclaimed 'friends of the poor' is a delight and wouldn't need much changing to bring it up to date for the 21st century. It all ends happily with, appropriately, a wedding.
4.0 von 5 Sternen May each New Year be Happier than the last! 28. Dezember 2016
Von L. McEntire - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

There were a lot of words and phrases I didn't quite understand, but I understood the point and lesson. This book was good and it makes a good companion book with A Christmas Carol. I enjoyed it.
