Book Review: Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
Updated: Jan 22
Skipping Christmas was enjoyable and could be easily read during the chaos of Christmas. The characters were relatable though presented in an unreliable narrative perspective. This isn't a bad thing, simply something to be aware about.
The plot is different from many other Christmas stories, yet still fits the traditional archetype of what a person would expect from one. It captures a reader's attention from the challenges the characters face to the tragedy brought about by their own decisions.
As a side note, this story lends itself to Marxist Criticism very well and an entire academic paper could be written by the criticism's application.
