Jacob T. Marley ~ R. William Bennett
comments by CarolK
Jacob T. Marley is the type of book I suspect you’ll either really like or throw across the room. It’s a toss-up. Loyalists to Dickens may be put off by this tale of the two partners Jacob T. Marley and Ebenezer Scrooge.
I absolutely loved Bennett’s look back at just what made Scrooge the man he was. He fills in the gap giving us the back story of Marley and how the lives of these two men connected. So if you ever wondered just how Marley came to be the bearer of the message that Scrooge would be visited by three spirits, Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, before Christmas Eve was over, read this book. I found it delightful and the perfect book for the holiday season.
