all, that is, until one special Christmas Eve.
I find it too much a cliché to compare this book's story line to all the other Christmas classics, such as "A Christmas Carol" and others, because it is not a rendition of these classics. Comenole's book both contributes to those traditions and departs from them, with innovative characters and plot twists. It is my guess that those who purchase this book will find the sights, sounds and even the smells of Christmases gone by right there in the pages of this book. We all come from small towns and big cities, filled with people from many different cultures; the characters in this book mirror that diversity, and readers will certainly find themselves reflected in this interesting assortment of characters.
We all live in a world of human emotions and in this book you will experience your very own. For myself... well, I found the characters so diverse and well described that they were all brought to life in my mind's eye. One poor unfortunate in this story was so vividly brought to life it put me in mind of an old and very dear friend from my childhood. I smiled when I thought of the fun things we shared years ago, and as I read on my eyes filled when I remembered his demise.Read more ›
I can see reading this book over and over, every Christmas season, for years and years to come; it has so many layers of meaning that it would be impossible to capture them all the first time through. I especially enjoyed the textures of immagrant life and the 19th century flavor. The book is realistic and supernatural at the same time. It's about far more than Christmas, but it definitely will put you in a merry and contemplative mood--it'll also motivate you to round up all your friends and family and embrace them as if they'd been lost at sea, but rescued....
I can't recomend this book enough. It was awesome!
