Very Scalzian indeed!

In the intro Scalzi promises that the stories will cheer us up, make us laugh and that there's one that will make his mother in law cry. Well, I got cheered up, laughed and ugly cried on the damn story. This is short, sweet and fulfilling, much like a Christmas dinner at your parents house. I highly recommend both. ps Being Brazilian, there were some references that got way over my head and I had to look up online, but American folks will laugh a lot.

enjoyed it!

This one was pretty interesting and entertaining and perfect for a quick Christmas read or listen. It's a collection of short stories.I laughed a few times. Some of the stories were more heartfelt than funny and sometimes I wasn't sure when one started and when one began because I was listening to it while driving and I feel like you really have to be paying attention. There were some adorable stories in here and i loved how one was told kind of like the night before christmas. Some of the stories were told in interview style but It was a pretty enjoyable listen. I'm not even sure how to review this one but I liked it.

Enjoy, no matter what time of year it is...

I'm always looking forward to the Christmas season because I love Christmas stories and I love finding that perfect tale of home, love, and hope, from authors that I adore... And so I chose this book... There are several stories in this collection that are very typical Scalzi: Amusing, witty, etc, but I don't suggest that you buy this one at full price, unless that is, you're a huge Scalzi fan (raises own hand). LOL! But, there are at least two stories in here that very much fills my needs: Christmas in July... a delightful Christmas story, albeit at the wrong time of year, and the other was Sarah's Sister, both stories are brimming with all the love, hope and family joy I could ever want! So have a Merry Christmas... no matter what time of year it is!

I loved this production

I snorted, I laughed, I even sniffled a bit during the Christmas baby story.

Fun holiday read

Positively surprised. Didn't know what to expect but many of these stories are Scalzi at his finest, with irreverent and hilarious interpretations of everything we know about Christmas. There are a couple of fillers but they are more than offset by great stories like the interview with the inn keeper. Now I finally know why the animals all look at baby Jesus in their manger....I had to laugh so hard I almost drove off the road.

holiday fun!

this is a light-hearted easy listen. most of it is Santa/kid friendly so we listened to parts of it as a family. The readers do a great job!

The very Scalziest of Christmases

It's hard to summarize this better than the title already does. The humor is classic Scalzi, as is the irreverence, and the occasional heartfelt moments. I really enjoyed this anthology and look forward to listening to it again next December as well.

Vermischtes

Eine typische Kurzgeschichten-Sammlung: zwei berührende, ein paar wirklich komische („Bitter November“ ist ein Juwel) und ein Rest, den man besser vergisst. Aber alle Geschichten sind sehr gut vorgetragen und die Qualität der erstaufgeführten rechtfertigt den Kauf und die Zeit. Ho, ho.
