Mr. Timothy

Mr. Timothy

For those of you familiar with Charles Dickens “Christmas Carol”, Mr. Timothy tells the story of a grown up Tiny Tim, one Mr. Timothy Cratchit. It is 1860 London, and this Tim is still down on his luck, but not so tiny any more. This story is darker and seedier; a much more suspenseful Christmas story. Or so I’ve read. I didn’t make it through 10 pages before I put the book down. The graphic sexual nature of the book and the foul language had already begun. Can’t recommend this book.
