An unfortunate review

I love Lemony Snicket. Brent and I bought his newest book "The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story" yesterday in Fargo. We thought is was hilarious. For some reason, unremembered by me now, I looked the book up on Amazon last night. The only review it had was from a lady who thought is was going to be a beautiful and educational interweaving of Hanukkah and Christmas. She was very offended that Christmas was getting the shaft. As an evangelical Christian I can honestly say that's not the way I interpreted this book at all. Perhaps we need to get a sense of humor. So I am starting a grassroots campaign. Go on and either write your own review in praise of LS, or vote for mine. By the time Brent edited it so that I was not taking pot shots at this woman who was CLEARLY unfamiliar with LS, it's quite short.

  1. I might need to read it to get "in the spirit" this holiday season. I love Lemony Snicket, and this would provide the feel without the commitment of an entire series. Huzzah!
