The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck

Scrooge McDuck

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck by Don Rosa.
I've been re-reading this book over and over in the last weeks.The art is so detailed that I keep finding new things every time I grab the book.And that goes to the story as well,as it is so well documented that it's almost like a documentary.And of course,there's the fact that the whole story shows why Scrooge loves his money —and no,it's not because he's greedy.
But I've been enjoying this book mostly because I have some big plans,and in reading Scrooge's adventures around the world I'm getting very motivated.Probably I won't be wrestling lions in Africa or meeting ghosts as in the book but if a stubborn duck could do that,I don't see why I can't success when I start an adventure of my own.
My favorite quote from the book:
«Fergus McDuck: "Oh dear —My son is crazy as a loon!"
Hortence McDuck: "Poor people are crazy,papa! Rich people are eccentric!"
Matilda McDuck: "Scroogey's as eccentric as a loon!"»
