Overview

From the Nebula Award winning author comes this modern Christmas classic.
 
The chief executive of a Seattle-based high-tech company, Monica Banks is a workaholic who has closed herself off to any kind of home life, family, or love. Then one snowy Christmas Eve, she discovers a ghost in her office computer. The ghost is none other than Ebenezer Scrooge.
 
Awakened by a bright and lonely eight-year-old girl named Tina using the password “Humbug,” Scrooge is ready and willing to take his turn as a Christmas spirit. But he finds that the world has changed a lot since his day, and though he knows that the spirit of love, generosity, and forgiveness is eternal, it will take more than a little tech support for him to convince Monica before the morning light.
 
“Reading Scarborough is a joy.”—Anne McCaffrey
 
“[A] modern Christmas Carol…a beautiful story.”—Midwest Book Review

We know the plot. She almost made her version believable, at least as believable as Dicken's version. The humor is wonderful. I'm a fan of fantasy books where someone from our world falls into another world by whatever means. This is not a classic. It's pure escapism and humor and there's nothing wrong with that!

This was a fun book to read for the Holiday season. Scarborough did a good job bringing a Dicken's classic to a modern time. This time Scrooge is a brought to life by a dead computer genius to help his sister remember the meaning of love, friends and hope. Heart warming and easy to read, especially with a busy Holiday schedule. Recommend for those who want to read something like but Christmassy, without being too cheesey.
