"An expert updating of a classic story filled with sly wit -- a pleasure to read!"
-- Nell Minow, film critic, The Movie Mom
"I downloaded it to my Kindle and finished reading it today...thoroughly enjoyed it! I tweeted it out this evening."
-- David Perdue, The Charles Dickens Page
"Elisberg's (I mean Dickens's) sequel to A CHRISTMAS CAROL is witty, smart, and hugely entertaining. You don't have to be a Charles Dickens scholar to enjoy this, but the more Dickens you know, the funnier it is. Droll and cynical and even downright magical."
-- Mick Garris, Edgar-winning screenwriter/director, International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival Hall of Fame. The Stand, The Shining, Hocus Pocus
"Speaking as a college professor, I have to say that this book is a vile mockery, a travesty and a crime against literature. It's also hilarious."
-- Prof. Ian Abrams, professor of screenwriting, Drexel University. Screenwriter, Undercover Blues
A "tongue in cheek sequel...What fun!"
-- Catherine Barker, president, New South Wales Dickens Society
"Ebenezer Scrooge himself would have laughed out loud at Elisberg's affectionate and witty re-imagining of Dickens. And so, I believe, would Dickens."
-- David Rintels, 3-time Emmy winner. Broadway playwright, Clarence Darrow
