They take him travelling on the wings of the night to see the shadows of Christmas past, present, and future - and Scrooge learns a lesson that he will never forget. CEFR B1 Word count 10,385

Review by

"In fact, we’re going to be rich.” John Duncan smiled at his children. He got a good job as a chemist and 9 years have passed since his wife died. However his son-in-low had found some information about the waste product from the paint factory which John works for. As a chief biologist or a father of his children, what does he speak in the court?If I were him, I'll speak true for people who lives near the factory. I think he is poor because he lost everything.

Review by

John Duncan was an honest biologist, but he needed money. Because of money, he couldn't afford to be honest. A poison changed him and blinded him...This story is tragedy. The story is interesting, but also very sad. He loved his chiledren, so he got a job, but as a result, he lost the future. It's very difficult problem, I think. A chemical problem is also serious problem.
