Very Scalzian indeed!

In the intro Scalzi promises that the stories will cheer us up, make us laugh and that there's one that will make his mother in law cry.

Well, I got cheered up, laughed and ugly cried on the damn story.

This is short, sweet and fulfilling, much like a Christmas dinner at your parents house. I highly recommend both.

ps Being Brazilian, there were some references that got way over my head and I had to look up online, but American folks will laugh a lot.

enjoyed it!

This one was pretty interesting and entertaining and perfect for a quick Christmas read or listen. It's a collection of short stories.I laughed a few times. Some of the stories were more heartfelt than funny and sometimes I wasn't sure when one started and when one began because I was listening to it while driving and I feel like you really have to be paying attention. There were some adorable stories in here and i loved how one was told kind of like the night before christmas. Some of the stories were told in interview style but It was a pretty enjoyable listen. I'm not even sure how to review this one but I liked it.

I loved this production

I snorted, I laughed, I even sniffled a bit during the Christmas baby story.

Pure Scalzi.

Of course :::SPOILER::: The baby's was without Oxygen for at least 10 minutes. But hey it was for the God's Not Dead crowd.

Disappointing

I love classic Scalzi but this collection of stories was not what I was expecting. I kept listening until about half way, hoping there would be something engaging.
