All I can say is at least I didn t waste too much time reading this The story was formulaic the dialogue painful and the writing lazy The story is based on a personal experience and it would have been a much better book if he would have simply told the real story instead of trying to embellish it to create a sense of pathos While there is undoubtedly a good message it comes across as a uick way to make a buck by preying on people s sentimentality this time of year

The Christmas Sweater

Summary ð The Christmas Sweater ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Free read The Christmas Sweater Ourney on the road to manhood It will take wrestling with himself his faith and his family and the guidance of a mysterious neighbor named Russell to help Eddie find his path through the storm clouds of life and finally see the real significance of that simple gift his mother had crafted by hand with love in her heartBased on a deeply personal true story The Christmas Sweater is a warm and poignant tale of family faith and forgiveness that offers us a glimpse of our own lives while also making us uestion if we really know what's most important in them. You should read this book 1 because it s short and reuires minimal effort 2 because it teaches you something about yourself and 3 because it will leave you with that warm and yes sappy Christmas time feeling that so many elitist readers seem to think is somehow beneath themHere s the thing you know going in to a book like this that your heartstrings are going to get a good tug Add to that the back cover blurb claiming the style is reminiscent of Mitch Albom and that s all I need to hear to send me running in the other direction But I felt like this book had some marked differences from your traditional Christmas schmoopfest For one thing while the story was predictable it was Eddie the main character s journey that was gripping His thought process was so true to life for a self absorbed teenager that I found it impossible not to relate to him And while this book was didactic in its life lessons it was in the context of pounding it in to Eddie s thick head rather than lecturing the reader so it wasn t nearly as annoying as Albom s style But what sealed the deal for me in making this a book I actually enjoyed is its clear explanation of what atonement means It personalized Christ s sacrifice in a way that I could take and say Yes I can choose to move on and be better Any misery I endure is of my own making While that may make for a simple story it s one that we can all benefit from reading
