Présentation de l'éditeur

The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In, a short novel by Charles Dickens, was written and published in 1844, one year after A Christmas Carol. It is the second in his series of "Christmas books": five short books with strong social and moral messages that he published during the 1840's.Charles John Huffam Dickens pen-name "Boz", was the foremost English novelist of the Victorian era, as well as a vigorous social campaigner. Considered one of the English language's greatest writers, he was acclaimed for his rich storytelling and memorable characters, and achieved massive worldwide popularity in his lifetime. Later critics, beginning with George Gissing and G. K. Chesterton, championed his mastery of prose, his endless invention of memorable characters and his powerful social sensibilities. Yet he has also received criticism from writers such as George Henry Lewes, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf, who list sentimentality, implausible occurrence and grotesque characters as faults in his oeuvre. The popularity of Dickens' novels and short stories has meant that none have ever gone out of print. Dickens wrote serialised novels, which was the usual format for fiction at the time, and each new part of his stories would be eagerly anticipated by the reading public. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Classic Dickens in Abbreviated Form 21 décembre 2014

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.

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'.

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.

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.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 A follow-up to "A Christmas Carol" 11 janvier 2015

This Christmas novella (actually it is a New Year's story) is not as good as Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," but it is a solid book with a moral and a supernatural element (in this case: goblins).

Parts of the story are quite bleak and there is very little humor.

But if you like Dickens' other works, you will probably like this one, too.
