Skipping Christmas, by John Grisham, is a delight! It’s a heartfelt comedy about the mayhem and insanity often associated with Christmas traditions. With their only child away in the Peace Corps, then adding up Christmas in dollars and cents, it seemed like a good enough reason for Luther and Nora Krank to skip the whole affair and go on a cruise. After a comedic array of judgements from the community and unplanned mishaps, their neighbors come to their aid and turn a disastrous Christmas Eve into a family homecoming of unconditional love.

One. The gate was packed with weary travelers, most of them standing and huddled along the walls because the meager allotment of plastic chairs had long since been taken. She would live in a lean-to with no plumbing, no electricity, no phone, and she was anxious to begin her journey. The flight would take her to Miami, then to Lima, then by bus for three days into the mountains, into another century. For the first time in her young and sheltered life, Blair would spend Christmas away from home. Her mother clutched her hand and tried to be strong. The good-byes had all been said.

This is a fantastic story... it drags a little to the end but until then it was hard to put down. John Grisham is an American icon. If you've ever felt disdain for lawyers his books fuel that. Lawyers in all their sliminess come alive. Gresham isn't going to win a Pulitzer but her doesn't need to. His books are distracting and entertaining. This book is one of his best.

I cannot give a full opinion of this novel at this time, as I have just started on it. Thus far, as my reading have progressed, I am enjoying the way the story unfolds. No dull moment, particularly after the subject met his big setback, where I had paused. I am also reading A Time to Kill concurrently. This works for me, odd as it may sound to other readers. There are at least 8 titles on my desk and w/ a batch more coming, I either keep up or left em sit idly. For those who have been ignoring The Partner for whatever reasons, have another look..Grisham is a natural storyteller. • A novel is nothing but a mode to provide entertainment. Let the 'author/book' critics delight hearing themselves - they need to earn a living. Buy what serves your fancy, listen to your drummer. • I intend to update my comments, for those interested.

While I'm an avid reader of John Grisham, this book was quite disappointing. I thought it was going along well and then the wrap up at the end of the book left much to be desired. It was terrible. The pieces didn't come together or make any sense and then the reader is left questioning the reason of it all.
I'm very disappointed in this book. It was like he had someone come in and finish it for him who hadn't even read the book. Very disappointed.

I have enjoyed watching the movie Christmas with the Kranks at Christmas time for several years now, so when I heard about this book, I just had to get it! I’m a fan of John Grisham’s legal thrillers, so I was curious to see what a fiction book by him would be like. I enjoyed it! The writing was crisp, and descriptive. He did a great job with the characters. It was a quick, and enjoyable read.

I wanted to read this book after I learned the movie I had been watching at my daughter's house was based on this book and I had not seen the conclusion. This is an interesting book of John's and is filled with humor and heart warming feelings. The book arrived quickly and was well packaged and arrived in good condition. I am happy with the book and the seller.

I loved this book and I immediately wanted to see the movie. I laughed out loud all the way through the book, but I also wondered why they couldn't put up the snowman and outside lights since they wanting leaving for their cruise until Christmas Day. I know that was what the book was all about, how their skipping all their usual plans affected everyone else, but it did make me think.

There are too few truly well-written stories that are genuinely funny.
This is it ! I've read some John Grisham books,and this one is quite
out of character for him. However, it is so realistic as it goes through
the life of a middle-class family whose lives are turned upside down
by their decision to skip Christmas. And on Christmas Eve morning,
everything takes a 180. Laughed all through it. The movie "Christmas
with the Kranks" did not do justice to it. Read the book !!
I loved this novel from beginning to end but the ending made me want to scream!! I won't give it away but I started suspecting something fishy about 2/3 way through. But regardless, a great read, as John Grisham novels always are. Can't believe I hadn't read it yet! Worth your time. Couldn't stop reading, as usual.
