Creepy Crazy Christmas

Rated 3.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Follow along with the Grimes family as you read about some of their horror-filled, wacky, and comical Christmases. Among the cast of characters are the parents, Elise and Bob; their young son, Jimmy; and Jimmy’s estranged paternal grandmother, Winnie. And, of course, St. Nick, together with some of his friends.

Buyer beware: these stories are quirky and warped. No gore or sex, but probably adult. More

Review by: Dorothyanne Brown on Dec. 13, 2012 :
Creepy Crazy Christmas is exactly as titled - creepy and a bit crazy! The eight stories in the book each touch on an event in the very dysfunctional Grimes family, and each one has a twist at the end that will cause you to tilt your head to the side and say, "Wha?" and then laugh. If, that is, you have an evil mind as I do. Best story is "Winnie's Christmas Goodies". The last story in the book is perhaps the weakest. I love the ideas in these stories but wish there was more to each one - I want more info on the family, more fun exploring the horrible ways they are to each other. Reminiscent of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", these could be great with a bit more flesh on their bones (as it were).
