Read in January, 2010

I enjoyed this read quite a bit. I was surprised how much I liked the book. It made me happy and sad just like a good Christmas Read should produce. All in all I felt emotionally manipulated but it was done in a nice way.

I enjoyed the setting in Utah, since I have spent many years there in the past. I was able to recognize many of the geographic references and that was fun. I thought the plot complications were great but the complications were too easily overcome and I thought the author took some short cuts to resolve the issues and there was a noticeable lack of depth even for an easy audience like me. I thought the premise and the conflicts originally established would have made this book a classic Christmas tale reaching Dickensian heights but the execution of the plot came up short.

Still I loved the book and was glad for the journey.

Also I am not sure I have yet listened to a book that was narrated by the author that I have liked the narration. Authors leave the narration to the professionals and just write!
