How is Jacob Marley And Scrooge Alike (Different)?
I need a few ways these 2 characters (From A Christmas Carol) are the same and different.

at the start of the book they are very similar - both grasping, mean, grumpy and inconsiderate
by the end of the book scrooge has reformed and is a kind, generous, funloving man
I think it sad that his name is still synonymous with miserly characteristics - it should be the exact opposite - scrooge learned the error of his ways and became a benevolent man who should be looked up to not despised

In the beginning, they are different because Marley is a good person (kind, caring, etc.) and Scrooge is greedy, rude, pessimistic, and, well, a Scrooge.
In the end Scrooge is the same as Marley was in the beginning, and is no longer a 'Scrooge.'
