SantaLand Diaries

SantaLand Diaries - David Sedaris

I couldn't any more ignore a highly positive feedback from many readers about David Sedaris's comedy skills. And Christmas from a different perspective? That sounded interesting!

Unfortunately, in regard to this book, my high expectations were not totally met.

There were for sure some really funny observations, comments and thoughts, but on the whole I found the humour in this collection out of non-fiction stories rather monotonous than sparking-refreshing.

I hope, I'll have more luck with my next David Sedaris.

Because his writing is very promising.
