The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans

A man learns how to appreciate and love his family through the help of Mary, the lady they stay with. It's a short, fun read, but the edition I read had a lot of editing errors. Also the narration is in first person, but later it would change to first-person omniscient? Not very readable...really annoying. It feels like this was a first draft and was printed without any editing...maybe the later editions are a little more cohesive.

But overall, the idea is within the Christmas and Holiday spirit and for that it's worth a read.

  2. Ugh I hate spelling mistakes in a book. I find it breaks the flow of reading and I get a bit fixated on them. I would definitely look for another edition to read if I were to pick up this book.

  3. This sounds like a cute Christmas book. It's too bad that it had so many errors that could distract you from the story.

  5. I've had this for many years and use it for decoration. And I've never read it. Sounds like it's better as a Christmas decoration :)
