Dickens has used short effective words to describe something or someone. This makes the story more interesting and more to the point. He also gives the story some tension and suspense. E. g. a pair of legs without a body Now a head without a body. This gives the story more excitement and makes you want to read on with suspense. These short, sharp and to the point describing adds enjoyment to the story because you can almost picture it. Dickens has written A Christmas Carol in such a way that it can make the reader laugh out loud especially when e. g.
scrooge worries about weather a ghost can sit on a chair He says it might involve the necessity of an embarrassing situation. This element of humor gives the reader a laugh or two which every good book needs to be a success unless it is a grim story like a horror story. In addition every book needs a touch of emotion to pull on the heart strings of the readers e. g. A solitary child, neglected by his friend is left there still. Dickens has taken into account these factors to produce a funny witty full of emotion exciting story. Most people enjoy a laugh, an emotion and to make the reader think, laugh or cry.
Dickens has done this to produce a book that will live on forever. In my opinion the main reason for A Christmas Carol been so popular in modern day society is the moral message. The message that makes you stop and think after you have read the book. The message was well in my opinion: Things can only get better. For instance at the beginning of the story Scrooge was a crusty old man and at the end of the story he saw the light at the end of the tunnel. He made it out of that dark tunnel and shared his Christmas good will with everyone. This moral message will live on forever like the book, read time and time again.
