    " Aaahhhh...Christmas. It is hilarious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Webfrau | 10/25/2013

    " There were a couple of chuckles in this book but really it felt like the majority of the writers were just trying too hard to be clever or funny or add enough hyperbole to make their Christmas outstanding. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 1/31/2013

    " It's been so long since I actually finished this book. It was ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsy | 12/30/2012

    " Perfect pre or post Christmas read for the rest of us. There's nothing deep or profound in these short stories but they are worth alot of knowing laughs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 7/7/2012

    " Gut bustingly hilarious so far. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erin Woolsey | 6/9/2012

    " Thought it was going to be funny...it was only painful to get through, and I didn't finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gabby | 3/14/2012

    " A collection of short stories only one of which I found interesting/entertaining. Many of the stories could have been written as a class assignment in creative writing. Most would not have received a passing grade. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyndsay Leggott | 8/13/2011

    " Meh....one or two funny stories, but nothing great. Wouldn't read it again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wendy | 5/27/2011

    " Wanted these to be much much funnier than they were. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bethany | 3/27/2011

    " Most of the stories were hard to get into, and you had to know their version of Christmas to really get how bad it was. And I was hoping more for funny stories about bad Christmases than depressing ones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 2/12/2011

    " Scathing, irreverent, some Jewish, series of short stories of Christmases gone bad. Made me laugh when I was losing my sense of humor. Would make a good gift in early Dec. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa Valeri | 1/27/2011

    " Sad stories by angry people. Not a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsy | 1/18/2011

    " Perfect pre or post Christmas read for the rest of us. There's nothing deep or profound in these short stories but they are worth alot of knowing laughs. "
