Scrooge’s Folly Reveiw

Ebeneezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens pairs up once again with Marley. This time, Marley comes back as a ghost and wants to prove he was right all along. Enter stage left, Andrea Smilow, will she vindicate Marley? Of course, all is not as it seems because Scrooge is actually behind this hilarious plot!

I love me some sarcasm so this tale is right up my alley! The author has offered a clever and comic relief of the tale we’ve all known since childhood. Does Scrooge live up to his reputation? You’ll have to read for yourself, there are no spoilers here!
