Some reviews I've noticed for this book:
"This is the second classic comic that I have read, and I find this one of the best graphic adaptations I have read so far. The original text is faithful to the novel; the illustrations are excellently done (something that can rarely be achieved by other collections); and the additional information may be useful to understand the social and cultural contexts of the novel.I think other readers will love it too."

"I read this book as part of an assignment in a writing class. I was fairly unfamiliar with graphic novels before reading this book and I am glad I started with this one because it was a good introduction. I had previously thought of graphic novels as science fiction comics for kids or people who didn't like to read. This book convinces me that the graphic format is capable of telling serious stories.
The artwork in this book is bright, colorful, and expressive. Only original text is used in the book so it still has the sound and feel of the classic. This version also has extra information at the end that is very helpful if you want to know the history of the author and the story behind the book.
The downside of this book for me was that it did not contain all of the original text. Because I read the classic version along with the graphic I had the chance to see them both simultaneously which helped me see the strengths of the graphic.
Minus my small complaint, this is a good version of a great story. I recommend it."

"If a person is looking for the top of the line classic, graphic novel this would be a great book for them. The graphic novel version of A Christmas Carol goes well together with the adaptation version by Charles Dickens. The graphic novel version also goes well with the 2009 movie version of A Christmas Carol. The graphic novel version is a great book for a person who wants to get a wonderful message and read a great classic in fewer words and pictures. This book would be a great graphic novel for a high school English teacher to use in their classroom. During high school, a lot of book they read are classics and A Christmas Carol could be one that they could use by using both the graphic novel and the adaptation version. A Christmas Carol has my five stars behind it because of the quality of the illustrations and the striation of the book as a whole."
