    "A bit of a mixed bag"

    I was in the mood for some Christmas short stories so I picked up this book.

    I really liked some of them: "The Gift of the Magi" and "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" (Sherlock Holmes) are old favorites that I will never get tired of and anyone with a heart would love "Susie's letter from Santa" it is just beautiful.

    I had never heard "The Fir Tree" by Hans Christian Andersen and I really, really liked it. Bittersweet in true HCA style and amazingly memorable.

    I found the rest of the book (basically the second half) a bit dry, hum-drum and what is the point. "Christmas in Poganuc," "How Santa Claus Came to Simpson's Bar" and "Christmas at Thompson Hall" all seemed to drone on and on with little point (not that Christmas stories need to have a point) but they were just a bit boring.

    So, for $5 (member price) the first half is great. The second half... not really worth my time.

    "Classic holiday fare"
    Would you listen to Classic Christmas Stories again? Why?

    I will probably listen to these stories again next Christmas. They are great classics!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Classic Christmas Stories?

    I listened to these stories with my kids. It was a great way to spend some quiet time together as family during the busy holiday season. I would recommend the experience to anyone with children.
