This was an interesting collection of short stories some considerably shorter than others It was interesting to see that some of the stories had been taken from Dickens full length novels as I couldn t imagine them tying into a longer text in any wayThere were some stories however that I found uite hard to get through in comparison to others When I picked this up it was on Christmas Day specifically so I could read A Christmas Carol even though this was not the first short story in the collection I then went back to the beginning to read the rest I enjoyed A Christmas Carol although it was by no means the best story in the collection My personal favourites were A Madman s Manuscript The Ghost in the Bride s Chamber The Trial for Murder and Captain Murderer and the Devil s Bargain A Child s Dream of a Star was also very melancholy and beautifulIf you like Dickens humorous style of writing I would definitely recommend picking this up You won t always like every story in a collection like this but it s worth reading for the ones you do like

Download Ghost Stories 107 Read & Download ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Û Charles Dickens Summary Ghost Stories Throughout his illustrious writing career Charles Dickens often turned his hand to fashioning short pieces of ghostly fiction Even in his first successful work Pickwick Papers you will find five ghost stories all of which are included in this collection Dickens began the tradition of the gh. Note The stories are in reading order The numbers indicate their order in the book 1 The ueer Chair The Bagman s StoryChapter 14 from The Pickwick PapersA chair that talks and guides a tired traveller that arrives in an inn 2 A Madman s ManuscriptChapter 11 from The Pickwick PapersRamblings of a crazy man that wants to be proven crazy 3 The Goblins who Stole a SextonChapter 29 from The Pickwick PapersA precursor story to A Christmas Carol where instead of ghosts and spirits we have goblins and instead of a miserable rich man a miserable undertaker sexton who s only joy is drinking and burying 4 The Ghosts of the Mail The Story of The Bagman s uncleChapter 49 from The Pickwick PapersA Ghost story taking place in Edinburgh when a 19th century man finds himself as a passenger on a 18th century mail coach with 18th century people 5 The Baron of GrogzwigChapter 6 from Nicholas NicklebyA Ghost story taking place in Germany ending with an against suicide moral 8 To be Read at DuskThis story confused me a little bit since it was written in the style of story within a story Didn t feel like one story but it was a good ghost story 9 A Ghost in the Bride s ChamberChapter 4 from The Lazy Tour of Two Idle Apprentices a novella co written by Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens A pretty spooky story with a scary ending also including murders hanging and apparitions 10 The Haunted HouseChapters 1 6 from The Haunted House a portmanteau short story collection co written by Wilkie Collins Charles Dickens and Elizabeth Gaskell and others A ghost story with a sad twist 11 The Trial For Murder To be Taken With a Grain of SaltA banker is invited as a jury member to a trial He s able to see the ghost of the murdered man present all the 10 days of the trial Eerie and enigmatic Doesn t give lot s of answers 12 The SignalmanA railway signalman is haunted by a ghost that its appearance works each time as a premonition of a tragic railway accident With a twist at the end 13 Christmas Ghosts Actually the middle part of a slightly longer story by Dickens called A Christmas Tree It s of a ghost stories catalogue than a story itself Still interesting 14 The Lawyer and the GhostTitle links to a comic strip that actually sums up the story A light comic relief ghost story with a moral not for humans but for ghosts 15 Four Ghost StoriesThe title can t be obvious Four stories in one It sounds like a Black Friday special offerAnyway the 1st is about an artist who paints a person he never actually metThe 2nd and 3rd are similar both about relatives that appear as ghosts hours before the news of their deathsand the 4th which was the most interesting of the four Felt like a Grimm Fairy Tale 16 The Portrait Painter s StoryThis is actually the 1st story from the previous one Four Ghost Stories with elaborated detail An artist that paints a no living person by memoryrecollection 17 Captain Murderer and the Devil s BargainKeeping up with his usual format x stories in one we see in this story 2 gruesome bed stories that Dickens remembers from his childhood been told by his nurse One is about a bloodthirsty evil man Bluebeard echoes who kills his brides and bakes them into pies and the other one is about a man infested by rats because of a bargain with the devil 18 Mr Testator s VisitationMr Testator lives in an almost empty apartment and during a search into the subterranean cellars for coal he finds a room with furniture in heaps He decides to stealborrow the furniture to fill his empty apartment Then someonesomething visits him 19 A Child s Dream of a StarA child dreams of meeting his late sister in the heavens And this dream recurs for years until his is an old man A story with a single theme yet poetic 20 Well Authenticated RappingsWorst story in this collection A man is haunted from within himself by 3 different kinds of rappingsspiritual experiences I just read that this is a satire about food adulteration and the craze for spiritualism in the 1850 s So when I ll now the whole context I would be able to understand and appreciate the story but not today 7 The Haunted Man and the Ghost s BargainThe last Dickens s five novellas for Christmas The first was A Christmas CarolThis is a story that examines a different kind of moral A man wants to forget the sorrow wrong and trouble he has knownto cancel their remembrance and makes a bargain with a ghost but the result is that he becomes a miser and he s spreading his misery around 6 A Christmas CarolI read this story the 1st time during Christmas 2012 then the 2nd time Last Christmas RIP George and this was the third time I will not exaggerate A Christmas Carol was not just my favourite from this collection but it is my favourite from all Dickens s books I ve read Especially the last chapter where the joy and happiness of a saved man are overflowing I wish the same happiness to everybody and I don t think I need to say anything about this story but to urge you to read it as soon as possible Overall score 3375

What I really liked about this book was the ability to dip into Dickens I recall taking 6 months to read Bleak House and night after night having to retrace my steps one back two forward if I was lucky Some of the stories in this anthology are as short as a single page No danger of nodding off or losing the thread thereAs a bonus Dickens ghosts seem to be possessed hah ha of the author s sense of humour which makes for light reading amidst the often dense text indeed he strikes a fine balance between credibility and mischiefA couple of the stories seemed to veer slightly off the rails perhaps I was missing something and I felt the inclusion of A Christmas Carol 66 pages was a bit of a cheat but this was a padding out decision taken by the publisher and no blame can be attached to the author Sure it s a ghost story but it was the new and varied material that I enjoyed the mostAnd at the usual Wordsworth Classics bargain price it s an old Scrooge that complains when a good read costs less than a regular Starbucks
