At the risk of delving back into negativity, I've just finished reading Skipping Christmas by John Grisham and I hated it. I spent the entire book wondering why so much effort was being wasted caring what the neighbors thought and why so much energy was being wasted by the neighbors trying to enforce their ideas of Christmas on others. Furthermore, I found the characters to be entirely selfish, racist, and stupid. Even the presentation of the perfect gift at the end couldn't save this book for me. I hated it. I am now in need of a good book to read. Any suggestions?
