Customer Review

on January 4, 2003
The one thing that amazed me about this book is how fast I was able to read it. I only read Skipping Christmas on my bus rides back and forth from work which are only 20 minutes a day and I had this book finished in less than I week. I found the story enjoyable and very funny.
Luther and Nora Krank's daughter Blair leaves home to join the Peace Corps on Thanksgiving weekend. Luther spends a sleepless night figuring out how much money they spent on Christmas last year, $6, 100 dollars. He decides to talk his wife Nora into taking a cruise instead of spending all that money on Christmas and Nora agrees due to the fact that her daughter will not be around. What happens next is the hilarious and sometimes rude reactions from the neighbors and friends due to the fact that the Kranks are not decorating, sending cards or buying presents. On Christmas Eve the Kranks do get a surprise which changes their plans at the last minute and this is when the book get even more hilarious.
I found this book to be one of the most enjoyable Christmas stories that I have read in a very long time and Luther is definitely a modern day Scrooge. I highly recommend reading this one especially if you are looking for a fast and enjoyable read.
