Item description for The Haunted Man by Matty Groves Charles Dickens...
The Haunted Man is the last and hardest-hitting in a series of five novels that Charles Dickens wrote for the Christmas season. As in his original Christmas novel, A Christmas Carol, Dickens spins a ghost story that teaches its central character---Professor Redlaw---that the spiritual power of Christmas can overcome human suffering. This large print edition is designed for easy reading and includes an original introduction as well as a bonus story, "The Poor Relation's Story," a hearthside tale that continues Dickens' exploration of the meaning of Christmas.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Haunted Man?
Dickens's best Christmas novel Jan 9, 2007
Sadly, this Christmas novella is overshadowed (as are the other four) by A Christmas Carol -- which is, no question, a classic.
But I found this book a worthy equal, if not a bit better than Carol, in that the characters are a little more fleshed out, the movement of the story has darker and therefore more dramatic flourishes - while at the same time the comic characters are more complete and take a more central place in the plot. And the `message' is a bit less obvious.
The ghost of the title is far more sinister than Marley and Christmas Future combined!
