John Grisham is a very well known author whose works is often linked to suspense stories in which lawyers are involved trying to help deseperate helpless people. But this time, the author has prepared a surprising story in which Christmas is the main character.
Skipping Christmas is not a classical seasonal story as it reflects all the stress that people can get while getting ready for the holidays season, from buying the right tree to fighting the crowds in order to get the right ingridients for Christmas dinner and the exact presents for everybody.
As the story goes by, one family manages to come up with an ingenious plan to skip the whole celebration, thinking that this will not only help them find some relief from the stress that they get every year, but also to save some money.
What they don’t have in mind is that John Grisham has prepared a completely different plan for them, and as much as they want to forget all about Christmas, it keeps coming around their lives.
One obstacle after another will appear in their lives until the very end of the story, when suspense and emotions are the main ingredients of their very own Christmas celebration!
Happy Holidays! 😀
