My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I found this as a cheap Kindle buy and knew I couldn’t go wrong with a Wally Lamb book. I wanted a Christmas story and even though Christmas wasn’t the focus of the whole story, it was still a fun read for this time of year. I especially liked how it was set in the 1960’s and got a lot of laughs about things said and done during that time. This is a fun, light read and is great for any time of year, not just Christmas. I also appreciated how the author brought the disease of MS into the focus. With a family member recently diagnosed, I am aware of the devastating news this can bring.
