Holidays On Ice by David Sedaris, a collection of 6 short stories, was just a meh read for me. I heard that Sedaris was really funny so I had high hopes. I really wanted to like it.
I enjoyed SantaLand Diaries, the first story, for the most part. I was never an elf but I did work in retail at Christmastime and I can tell you it is hell. You see the worst of people and it takes you right out of the Christmas spirit. So I could relate to that story. There were funny moments, strange moments and moments where I questioned humanity.
The other 5 stories were odd and often on the macabre side. Sometimes they got a snort out of me but dead babies just aren't funny. I felt that he was trying to beat me over the head with a 'Christmas message' stick when all I really needed was a laugh.
Anyway I also bought Me Talk Pretty One Day so I hope that one goes better.
Bought at library book sale.
