A quick, very funny read. Worth a place on your shelf for reading every season. This is NOT a tear-jerking tale that will warm your heart and make you weep, and it is not meant to be. I recommend it.

How a couple in small town America deals with their daughter not being home for Christmas. This unexpectedly affects their friends and neighbors as well. Very similar to the movie but there are some significant differences.

I have been known to say "John Grisham can't write a bad book". This may be true in his usual genre, however, his comedic writing leaves a lot to be desired. I found myself skiming the first 3/4 of the book just to get through it. The last 1/4 picks up quite a bit and at least leaves you feeling like your time was not completelly wasted.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was witty and funny and nothing like John Grisham.
Want to see the movie one day.

A very nice story. It is a feel-good novel with a delightful ending that expresses the true meaning of Christmas. I highly recommend this one.

Cute & fast read, but overall negative tone. Luther is a miserable husband & father, but perfect grinch. Christmas with the Kranks.

First one of Grisham's books I didn't really care for. Didn't find his characters likeable as I usually do. Thus, I didn't really care how it turned out.
