it was ok
bookshelves: humorous, christmas
Read from December 11 to 27, 2011

This novel initially has a witty, clever construct - using science to explain how Santa does his business. I, however, really struggled to get through the last half of the book. I think this was mostly because the delivery was the same every chapter: the author introduces a "magical" Christmas phenomenon, the author poses an interesting scientific explanation for this magic, then the author sites a bunch of studies from the early to mid 2000's to support his theory, and finally the author makes a humorous observation or some one-liner. For me, it just got derivative. Also, I may be stupid, as the science got boring after a bit. If you love science and Santa, though, you'll probably love this book.
