Marley: A Novel | Jon Clinch
post image

Jacob Marley, business partner to Ebenezer Scrooge, is very much alive: a rapacious and cunning boy who grows up to be a forger, a scoundrel, and the man who will be both the making and the undoing of Scrooge.

More villain origin story than a retelling. This was marvelous and the writing wonderfully Dickensian. We meet a nasty Marley, and a kind Scrooge as schoolboys and observe how Marley‘s influence pollutes Scrooge. You could continue straight to a Christmas Carol, and the transition would be seamless.

Here‘s my review for this book I didn‘t finish. This is also a #TeamBuddyRead but I‘m not going to count it towards the #wintergames and I‘m not going to do the #wordsearch on it.

I decided to start this book. I read A Christmas Carol which is a #TeamBuddyRead and this is also a #TeamBuddyRead. I listened to the first 3 chapters of this book and I don‘t like it but I‘m hoping it gets better. If not then I‘ll DNF it.

It didn‘t take me long to get into this imagined backstory of Jacob Marley, whose ghost visits Ebenezer Scrooge in Dickens‘ classic, A Christmas Carol, and to find myself fully invested in the development of the relationship of these two men. A clever and illuminating revelation as to the many reasons why Marley was doomed, as well as an elaboration on the love story between young Scrooge and Belle—and more! Recommended!

Settling down to start Marley with a cup of tea! Will the author enhance my devotion to Dickens‘ A Christmas Carol with this book? Or will I toss this into the trash, vowing not to fall again for a retelling of a beloved story from another character‘s perspective?

Bklover Ooh let us know!! 4mo
Ruthiella I‘ve been burned before too! Looking forward to your verdict ! 4mo
