Grisham's novel is a complete departure from his usual courtroom style. The story unfolds with whimsical humor as Dennis Boutsikaris narrates in an easy-to-listen-to voice. Boutsikaris depicts the Kranks with light humor, chagrin, and guilt, as neighbors blame them for losing the "best decorated street" award. When their daughter decides to return home from Peru as a surprise, it ends all plans for their Caribbean cruise and puts Christmas back on the calendar and decorations back on the street. From alienated neighbors to cranky Christmas shoppers, Boutsikaris does an exceptional job with each character and situation. Grisham's satirical look at Christmas materialism is well done and humorous. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
