Thoughts

Luthor’s daughter is travelling abroad and he loathes the idea of another expensive Christmas. To get away from it all is his dream and when he books a ten day cruise starting on the big day, he thinks it’s about to come true. But of course, life isn’t like that and after shunning everything and everyone related to the nativity, his plans are ruined.

I can really relate to Luthor because I loathe Christmas but even though his plans were thwarted, I still thought it was a fun read. His wife seemed far too preoccupied with other people’s opinion.

I thought it was great, heart-warming at the end, if a little too Scrooge-some in the middle. It’s a nice, short read you can get through in a day.
