BOOK REVIEW:
THE CHRISTMAS BUS BY MELODY CARSON

Title: The Christmas Bus by Melody Carlson
Author: Melody Carlson
Published: 2006
Language: English
Pages: 176
Rating: 3/5


Summary:
Set in the festive town of Christmas Valley, we follow all kinds of different characters over a rather unconventional Christmas holiday.


Review:
This was a wonderful little festive story.

This book is definitely one of the better Christmas books I've read. I loved the setting of the Christmas town, and I loved the main character. Most of the side-characters felt true and real as well, I especially enjoyed how they all felt different and all had their own voice.

I'm not particularly religious, but I liked how this story draws a lot of lines to Christianity and "the true meaning of Christmas", as they say.

I felt perhaps the ending was a bit rushed, and I'm not a massive fan of everythig tying up really nicely in the end, as this did. I know it's Christmas, but surely not everything goes off without a hitch.

I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who wants a festive, sweet story.
