I listened to this book while working on my computer at work. My co-workers kept asking what on earth was I laughing about! Before you knew it, they all went out and bought the book, and enjoyed it enough to buy more for gifts. I'll probably listen to it every Christmas now. Really gets you into the Christmas spirit.
I listen to this every year to remind me that there is more to Christmas than just the hustle & bustle of shopping and decorating. We all have our days as Luther!
I totally enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I was able to fully get into the story. A nice addition to Grisham's lineup. I certainly hope he continues to write this type of story along with his others.
This is a wonderful, funny, and uplifting story - but what makes it all the better is the narrator! The humorous way he tells the story allowed me to feel the frustration of this husband and wife as they simply try to take a year off from the hustle of Christmas and are met with disbelief from their friends and neighbors.

A very funny little book with a nice ending. Our hero is a persuasive, extremely rational grinch who will make you rethink all your holiday traditions. Then you'll need to rethink them again as his rational plans crumble in the face of nostalgia, unexpected chaos and a little Christmas spirit.
Predictable or not, this book was great. Highly recommended if you're having trouble getting in the holiday spirit, or sick of the holidays all together.
