At 63, Drew Middleton never understood Christmas, but if it weren't for The Ghost of Christmas Last filling his head with all sorts of lies scaring him to death, there would be no way Drew would change his ways. That would mean he was even worse than Scrooge! Well, maybe he was. The Ghost knew this, and that is why he had to make the story custom fit for Drew's life accordingly. Unlike scrooge, Drew didn't have 3 ghosts, just one who managed to get the job done quickly yet NOT without pain.Ya that's my take. I can't say I like the story but it works. The grim reaper is sorta soft and merciful, because it IS the Spirit of Christmas and the cover is cool.
