Modern Spin on Classic Christmas Tale
This short story is a modern-day take A Christmas Carol. Instead of Ebenezer Scrooge, we have Evalisa Trooge. She is very much like the original with just a few modern spins. In this version, she redeems herself in multiple ways, personally, professionally, and romantically. But she does have a trip—mental and physical—to get there!
The book follows the standard format of looking at the past, present, and future. Realization builds for Evalisa. Because this book is so short, I didn’t feel like the backstories of each segment were fully realized. Sometimes, characters just seem to emote out of the blue. Some dialogue was a little clunky. There were definitely issues with grammar, punctuation, and spelling. But if you enjoy the themes of the original A Christmas Carol, you might enjoy this very short modern take on it.
