5.0 out of 5 stars Marley was dead: To begin with, March 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Christmas Carol (Paperback)
Yes, I cried several times when I reread this classic. It is filled with the stuff that modern America needs: A decent respect for humanity, a will to help the sick, the tired, the poor, the hungry, the weak, the crippled. Scrooge changed and so can the current tendency to disrepect and discourtesy anyone and everything. The plot of the story is well known: Jacob Marley returns from the grave to warn Scrooge that the chance to help people and the chance to get great joy by helping people will vanish after death. Alas, it's too late for poor Marley who must prowl about the globe seeing terrible things that he could have helped while alive but now cannot help at all. The moral reality of the idea of the strengthless dead needs greater emphasis than it usually gets: The time to do good is now, now, now. Fortunately, Scrooge sees the warning clearly, the three ghosts of Christmas having done their job well, and Scrooge wakes up on Christmas day to do the good deeds he should have been doing all along. This is a book for all seasons, not just Christmas.
