Review: Marly’s Ghost – moved

Marly's Ghost
Marly’s Ghost by David Levithan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Using Dickens’ A Christmas Carol as a starting point, Leviathan has re-written the story for a modern age. On Valentine’s Day, Ben cannot face the day without his beloved Marly by his side. Her death has become all too hard for him to cope with, and Ben retreats further and further from life. On Valentine’s Day eve Ben is visited by Marly’s ghost and he feels that his life can get no worse. But Marly has something for Ben and if he can manage to follow her instructions then maybe he will find the thing he desperately needs.
