Post Listen Review: Ah yes. The Christmas stories we hear all the time. Done to death.

Was there a train? Yes. Was it Christmas? Yes. Did non-committal guy who doesn't realize he is non-committal get on the train find his lost love and reconnect with her, giving him one last chance to find true happiness which is, of course, love? Right-o. Did the mischievious thief on the train grow a conscience after doing something good for the people stuck on a train? Uh-huh. Was there snow? Yep, even two avalanches. Does the avalanche make people realize what is truly good in life? Of course. Does everyone end up happy and in love and glad that they shared this very special Christmas with one another? Affirmative. Was there Santa? Positively. Do I think riding Amtrak is a good and romantic way to travel the country, connect to people, fall in love and get married? Not a chance in hell.

Pre-Listen Guess: I am not usually very interested in Christmas stories in February but the guy's other two books have been at least mildly amusing so I hope this one is too.
