John Grisham, Skipping Christmas

“Meet Luther and Nora Krank. A typical family heading...”

Written on: 18/12/2001 by richard. (1 review written)

Good Points
This book will leave you warm with the Christmas spirit.

Bad Points
Two main gripes: Firstly that if you are looking for anything beyond this sweet story then you may be disappointed. There are no new slants here. So John Grisham fans may be a little disappointed.
Second: At 177 pages, this really is very short and sweet.

General Comments
Meet Luther and Nora Krank. A typical family heading for a typical Christmas until they decide to do something a little atypical. When they realise how much they spend every year at Christmas (and with their only daughter Blair away for the first year) they decide instead to spend their money on a special holiday-a dream cruise departing on Christmas Day. So they strike up an agreement: neither one of them is to spend so much as a penny on anything to do with Christmas.

Can the Kranks withstand the temptations and 'traditions' of Christmas? As the day approaches, the combined marketing might of brand names, shopping malls, neighbours and even friends combine to force these modern-day scrooges to succumb to the 'joys' of a modern Christmas. With the finishing line in sight, one phone call changes everything
