"Business!" cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were all my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!"
I like reading the book because there is more in regard to Scrooge's thoughts and opinions on what is going on around him. Although he doesn't want to believe what he is seeing in Marley's ghost - and does, rather hysterically try to sum it up to indigestion - he is quite frightened by the situation. Especially when he sees Marley fly out the window and join the other tortured souls bound in chains and misery.
I am anxious to get back to the book. Although I technically know what happens next I am excited for the richer details of the book.
How are you liking the book so far? Also, I wrote this post with my opinions rather than questions because I haven't been able to find discussion questions for the book. If you have questions you'd like to present, please feel free to do so.
And finally, Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans. Happy Thursday to all else. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the start of the Christmas Season!
