Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Delightful Christmas story. The movie Christmas with the Kranks was made from this book. This is one of the few book/movie combos where I enjoyed the movie more. The ending felt rushed, which kind of makes sense as once Blair calls the day becomes extremely rushed. This is where I feel the movie was better. The book is definitely worth reading though, especially during the holiday season. It contains a good message on how much we tend to spend on Christmas and, more importantly, why we do it. There are some good laughs and a few heartwarming moments. A good Christmas book.
December 20, 2018 I listened to the Audible version. I loved it! Oddly, listening to it, I did not feel the ending was rushed as I did when reading it myself. I guess the narrator was better than my voice. It was a joy to listen to and I plan to listen again next Christmas.
