Dear Charles Dickens,
It never fails. Every Christmas I imagine you laughing in your grave at everyone else's poor attempts at creating a sensational Christmas story. Perhaps you are even puffing out your skeletal chest in pride knowing that you are, and will remain The Great Big Daddy of Christmas tales, especially as long as garbage Christmas books like this one hit the shelves every year.

Your fan for life,
Me.

Oh, I guess I'm supposed to say why this book got sent to my Barter Box. Lets see...c

I greatly enjoyed reading this book, It is the story of eight people getting stranded in an airport on Christmas Eve and the woman who arrives with her van to take them to their designations, which all happen to b e the same town. It has people from all walks of life and tells the problems they have and how being stranded on a mountain with Strangers on Christmas Eve can help you put your life in a better perspective.

My mom bought me this book a few years back. I am sure it was a christmas present and I am sure she bought it thinking I would be able to relate to one of the characters - she's going through a divorce and so was I at the time. I'm not sure why it took me so long to read this book. I suppose I figured this book had some sort of happy ending and I really wasn't in the mood for books like this at the time. I was in a very dark place a year ago and I remember scoffing at any idea of happy endings. ...more

There really isn't much of a reivew to write. This was just a nice story to pass the time on a cold, wintery afternoon.

I love Christmas and all the holiday spirit. But honestly.... I was a little disappointed. The beginning of the book was good no complaints on writing style. The overall idea is something I've seen a lot but it wasn't something that really took away from the book. That is up until the characters find a cabin in the woods. There was so much stuff crammed into that part of the book with them in the cabin I feel like there was just a preset amount of pages for this book and they needed something to ...more

the book was ok as was the other I read by the same authors. I could put it down. It was trying to send a message about the meaning of Christmas, which was nice, but overall the book was just ok. There were various characters, but I am not sure I really connected with any of them.

One heck of a book!!! This was an absolutely beautiful work about Christmas!! It had all the needed components and was very well written. And the greatest compliment I could give to the Authors was that it was believable because of the way it was written!!! Thank you to the Authors!!!!
