Publisher's Summary

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!

Serge's voice!! Ugh.

Would you listen to When Elves Attack again? Why?

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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>Excellent otherwise..

Boring

I had a hard time getting into the book and slogged along to the end. I just didn't think it was that funny. I kept thinking it would get better and maybe I just missed something, but I don't think that I will listen to this author again.

A little Short but not bad

The book is funny but it reads like a few extra chapters from atomic lobsters. Very short and not too much of a story, still funny. He is no Christopher Moore but when you have nothing else it’s something that will keep you entertained.

Don't bother

This book is nothing more than Surge reflux. If you have read any of Tim’s other books, you have already encountered the antics in this one. There is nothing new or enjoyable about this book and it does indeed seem like a rushed creation. If it’s a goal to read every one of Dorsey’s novels then save this one for last because it’s guaranteed to disappoint.

Could this be an indication that Mr. Dorsey is burned out?
