The Cricket on the Hearth and Other Christmas Stories by Charles Dickens
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Cricket on the Hearth was a very entertaining story. The story of a little family, its members somewhat insecure in their relationship with each other, but a nice little family nonetheless. Yes, Dickens puts a mystery and a twist in the story that doesn't resolve itself until the end -- which I liked very much. The other stories were kind of dark and creepy -- guess Dickens was good at that, too, but I didn't like them as well. Anyway, it's always good to read a Dickens' tale at Christmastime.
