So it's a Christmas Carol is it? That's actually what I thought would win, though I thought the margin would be much bigger than what it was.

I am surprised at how many votes Lolita received. I guess JSWolf's campaigning really paid off.

Anyway I don't think I will be reading the Christmas Carol. If I participate in the discussion it will be from memory and probably from viewing some film version again. It seems to me that most film adaptions I have seen are fairly faithful to the book and nearly comprehensive. One of my favorite film versions remains this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044008/

Of course some things in the book are sometimes omitted in film adaptions.

Spoiler:
Just off of the top of my head films usually do not include the Spirit of Christmas Present showing Scrooge how sailors at sea are observing Christmas.
