I'll Have a Blue, Blue Christmas is a follow-on story to the novel Deep Blue. In Deep Blue, Brandt - our hero - is gifted, or cursed, depending on your perspective, with the Blues. These aren't your average, every day blues. Brandt becomes a conduit for the pain and suffering of the world, all that has gone before, all that is happening now. He has to play. The pain builds up inside, and the music is his release. He helps maintain the balance. He got this gift from a man he only knows as Old Wally, a black man with a harmonica he met in an alley filled with the homeless. Wally helps Brandt and his crew through the worst dangers of the novel Deep Blue, but we never really visit where he came from. In I'll Have a Blue, Blue Christmas, you can join with Brandt in a special Christmas vision, where you learn the story of Wally's past, where he got the harmonica, and how he found the blues...

    " Not as entertaining as his other books - characters are not as developed, story is more superficial. As famous as this story is, the book itself was disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nellie Reeves | 2/15/2014

    " I would say this is the greatest Christmas tale of them all and one I will never grow tired of. Scrooge is one of the greatest ever characters in English literature. "

    " I have been meaning to read this at Christmas for years and I finally got round to it this year! This is a quick read, probably helped by the fact that I know the story so well. I was slightly nervous about reading a Dickens novel as I haven't read any of his works since GCSE English many years ago. However as this is a shorter novel and very well know, there was no need to worry. Not an uplifting Christmas read but definfitely a must read. "

    " Great, light read for the holidays. Thinking about making it an annual tradition to go through it. Wouldn't hurt my sense of charitableness now would it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vishy | 1/26/2014

    " I read 'A Christmas Carol' for the first time a few years back on Christmas day :) Read it again today. I seem to have forgotten most of the story. But it was nice even on the re-read. The first few passages of the story are vintage Dickens. The ending of the story is heartwarming. A beautiful classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassidy Washburn | 1/22/2014

    " It was such a wonderful read, perfect for the holiday season. The first time I ever heard of this story was when I was very young and watched the Muppet's Christmas Carol. I still watch it every year but when I read this I couldn't help but picture Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge and all the muppets running around haha. I really do recommend reading this during the holidays. You won't regret it and if you do well...Bah Humbug to you! "

    " Loved it! Pleasantly surprised how much is used in film adaptations; I should think because it can't be bettered! I look forward to reading it again during Christmas 2013. "

    " it was mostly interesting to see what had been done differently through the countless movie versions I've seen through the years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen Pucci | 1/12/2014

    " Read for Beekman Library Book Club. Absolutley wonderful, heartwarming book. Joe Gargery is one of my favorite characters in literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maya Woloszyn | 1/2/2014

    " Read the whole thing out loud in two sittings with all the different voices. Excellent fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia | 11/30/2013

    " Such an awesome classic. Read this with my son and it was fantastic. A definite read for the holidays. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick Simpson | 9/18/2013

    " First time I've read a Dickens book, and I loved it. The message was great, and Dickens presented it in five wonderful staves. This will not be my last Dickens book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Cepero | 8/3/2013

    " I really enjoyed finally reading this story. After seeing it done in so many ways on the big and little screen, it was nice to read it. Definitely a quick read too! Could have read in one day if I gave myself a couple of hours to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawna | 4/6/2013

    " Always like reading Dickens. It's been a long time since my first reading of this one. It was fun to listen to again. Received Jacob T. Marley this year as a gift, so after reading it I was inspired to read A Christmas Carol. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth Pieterse | 11/9/2012

    " Aaaah......... A book to relish. How good overcomes evil and Christmas is the winner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 10/1/2012

    " This is much better than watching a television/movie version any day! I am so glad I bought this so I can share with my future children. It's no wonder why so many attempts have been made to capture the exuberant climax. I recommend everyone read the unabridged story. You won't regret it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Boardman | 9/19/2012

    " Took a few hours while taking down the Christmas decorations to read. Always love this story. "

    " My family traditionally reads this every Christmas, and it is always good to be reminded that it's never too late to change and be a better person. "

    " I enjoyed the book, but I think I prefer watching Mickey's Christmas Carol. I've always loved that cartoon.... "
