I’m dreaming of a Serge Christmas...
Palm trees with twinkle lights...
Santa’s big belly protruding over a neon Speedo....
It’s ho, ho, ho time in this hilarious and wacky Florida holiday tale, featuring bighearted psychopath Serge Storms and his sidekick, Coleman. Like Santa, Serge knows who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Few can give with the generosity and creativity of Serge, and as December 24 rolls around, he is filling up the Serge sleigh with an unforgettable bag of presents.
But before that, it’s all a big free-range Christmas office party, where Serge will be spreading his special cheer. And there’s that last-minute go-for-broke spree at the mall (just beware of those attacking elves - they bite). While you’re there, skip the lame photo on Santa’s lap - Serge will give you a lap ride you’ll never forget. As for that addled elf Coleman, there’s nothing like a white Christmas. Let it snow!
So grab a six-pack, spike the eggnog, and hit the dunes on the beach as Serge and Coleman roast some nuts on an open fire and prove that reindeer really do know how to fly!

Wow, that's a hard one. This is actually the first Tim Dorsey novel that I haven't read, but listened to. I had a much different idea of what Serge would sound like, but I liked his interpretation of Serge.
The craziness that is Serge A. Storms, as always. Who knew someone could create such a loveable psychopath!
The use of voices and the wide range he was able to cover. Very talented and enthusiastic.
The G-Unit. How they would get rid of the blonde news anchors, priceless! I aspire to be them when I grow up.
Get as much Tim Dorsey as you can into your life. You'll thank me later.
I love my audiobooks! Great for traveling.
I listened to about four of Dorsey's audiobooks. This one was atrocious and a pain to listen to. I think I listened to the first hour and just could not take it any more. I don't know whether the story is good. A narrator can make the story interesting but this narrator is horrible.
Oh, yeah....to all of them
None, really, it's a one of a kind!
Coleman is good, but when Serge gets his engine running, it's Serge all the way!
yes, no, wait......yes & no....wanted it to last forever!!
Just a fun listen!!
Not my favorite of the Serge series, but has it's moments. Short, 4 discs, get the impression that the author's publisher ordered him to write a short holiday themed story.
The story line was not as good as the longer books in the series.
I like the different voices for the different characters.
Funny, funny, chapter when Jim explains to Serge the secret to a happy marriage.
I am a huge Tim Dorsey fan. Don't start with this book, it will help to know the character from the early books in the series. This is book 14.
I am an Avid Reader, I love all different kinds of books, from Mystery to Sci Fi and Horror.
This is the best ever
Anything by David Sedaris, the comedy is roll on the floor laughing, I listened to this book at work and almost got in trouble for laughing so much.
When they come to Thanksgiving dinner with the mother in law there, I love the conversation with the daughter, about her boyfriend.
No, but I did like that the man gave jobs to the security guard and the manager of the store.
I would recommend this book to anyone, I bought it thinking it was just going to be a Christmas story, and it turned out to be the most hilariously entertaining book I have ever read. Forget Erma Bombeck or David Sedaris, Tim Dorsey is the new king of comedy writing.
It ranks about 6 our of 10.
How insane it was
My favorite scene was at the end when everyone celebrated Christmas together.
I was somewhat shocked at how casually murder of the bad guys was treated.
All in all, a very enjoyable and entertaining book.
Funny, engaging, entertaining
Any other Tim Dorsey book. He's in a class of his own
Great. He does the best Serge and Coleman.
Yes and I did.
I love Tim Dorsey and have read all his novels. This is the first one I listened to as an audio book as I commute to a different state during the week now.
Great crazy story as always-- we need alternative holiday books! The only thing I didn't like was Serge's voice. Sure he's manic and bipolar and whatever. BUt he is also a really large, strong, studly guy, and shouldn't have a weasely voice. He sounded more like bob newhart on speed than the Serge I had in my mind.
Very well done!
Great story and very well peformed by the reader.
I would recomend this to anyone who likes Christmas and laughter
but the book doesn't live up to it. The narrator used a very annoying voice for the main character. It sounded like he recorded it in a normal voice and upped the speed. I almost never comment on a book that I did not finish, but I could not make myself listen to the end. I often found my mind wandering.
