The Chimes - Charles Dickens

This Christmas story is from 1844 (between A Christmas Carol and The Cricket on the Hearth). It's the tale of Toby (AKA Trotty) Veck. A man who runs errands for whomsoever should need them run. His normal base of business is hanging around the doorway of a church that provides shelter while he waits to be summoned for work. Over the years the sound of the churches bells have become a comfort to him and he views them like an old friend. One day he notices a door left open that leads to the bell tower and he goes to investigate, accidentally kicking the door shut behind him and from there the tale really begins. Although short in length the story is one of the supernatural, social commentary, family, injustice, and the striving of human existence. There are similarities between this and A Christmas Carol but it stands alone for its creativity. And it's opening few pages in which Dickens describes an empty church are as vivid and brilliant as the opening chapter in Bleak House if you ask me...............I know you won't.
