Book Trailer: “The Christmas Spirits” (Hodder)


An interesting, eBook-only take on the classic Christmas tale

The Christmas Spirits is a retelling of Dickens’s classic A Christmas Carol and brings the story to the 21st century. The book follows George Moore, a futures analyst, as he receives three visitors on Christmas Eve, just as Scrooge was visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. But these are not the ghosties and sprites that frightened Dickens's readers. George's visitors are more ambiguous and all the more frightening to the modern sensibility because of it. Can George make the changes that are needed to save his eternal soul, or will he die a premature death which his employees will celebrate with a party?

This sounds like it could be quite fun, so I’ll try to squeeze it into the review schedule at some point before Christmas (no promises, though, as I have three novels on my priority list coming up).

Here’s the trailer:
