Fun bedtime or train read

by Dorcas W on Mar 15, 2012

This a quick and fun read with an almost farce like quality. It tells of small town/community politics that could equally apply to an English Village and reassesses what celebrations like Christmas are about, or for, without being heavy or too serious. A good bedtime read and perhaps a good Christmas present for someone who doesn't take Christmas too seriously (or even someone who does!).

vital pre-christmas reading

by Dorothy C H on Mar 3, 2011

A great laugh and absolutely necessary reading around November each year to remind us of the absurdity we all get trapped into leading up to Christmas. A well crafted balance between skepticism of the over-commercialization of the season and the very real benefits of close neighbours. A very welcome other side to Grisham.


xmas or not?

by uist on Feb 11, 2010

skipping christmas seems at first to be a simple story about a couple who want to change an established routine that they and their neighbours have established over the years. but as this story unwraps, the ripples their actions cause to themselves and their friends and neighbours are quite startling and unexpected, and really well told in a concise, brisk story. read it and be surprised-it will make you think x2 before changing tradition!

A pleasant, gentle read. Different from his usual plot-lines. I enjoyed it.


Amazing (avoid the movie)

by Richard on May 3, 2009

This book is really fascinating & is definitely a nice change of pace from Grisham's thrilling law novels. Drastically different than the movie, this book is far superior in every way. It is relatively short & great for a plane ride or long night.
