Publisher's Summary

Marley's soul was lost, doomed to wander among the ranks of humanity generation after generation, without the powers to be human. The curse of his chains was a heavy one, and there were many a time in which he found the weight of said chains to be unbearable. So this must be perfectly understood: Marley was without hope.
Marley's lot was indeed a sad one. Misery was his meat, and despair was his drink. Nothing of the earth was his except for the cold fingers of the grave. And it was there that Marley would never retreat. The grave was death! Marley had no powers such as those given to other earthbound spirits. He was a wraith - a wanderer. However, upon saving the soul of a dear friend, he was given a haunting. In this haunting Marley's powers could not be equaled. However, one foot off the haunting's property, and his soul would find itself in endless damnation.
Marley found himself trapped, staring out a window into an ever-changing world. A world he would never again become a part of. A world of love, laughter, sorrow, and pain. He would always be a stranger to it.
Waiting and waiting. Hoping to prove himself worthy.

Not really sure what was going on with this one...

I like the connections to the original book but not alot if it made sense at all. It seemed very predictable and not logical. Perhaps I need to listen to it a second time but the British chap who was the narrator made the American accent sound corny, at one point the characters openly declare they can't afford the house yet can afford a butler soon after.... This story was hard to follow because it just didn't follow logical sense. However it wasn't appalling, just wasn't great.
