Holidays on Ice Review


TITLE: Holidays On Ice
AUTHOR: David Sedaris
PUB DATE: October 2008
ISBN: 9781600244872

Thanks to Anna at Hachette for sending me this audio book to listen to and review. David Sedaris is so funny. When I listened to it today I had to turn it off whenever my son came into the room. There is some inappropriate language that was used. Just a heads up if you have kids around.

One minute it was funny and then the next it was a little disturbing. I have to say I truly loved the first story Santaland Diaries the most. SantaLand Diaries is the true story of David’s experiences working as an elf in Macy’s SantaLand.

There are a total of 12 stories that are read on the cds. The total listening time is about 4 hours. I listened to this while I was cleaning the kitchen up. I admit it there was times when I had to stop cause I was laughing. I have never read any of David’s books before but I think I might have to pick one up to read.

Remembering The Bones

TITLE: Remembering The Bones
AUTHOR: Frances Itani
DATE: December 2007

We are introduced to Georgie Danforth Whitley. She is a Canadian widow. Her Husband passed away 3 years ago. Georgie is getting ready to go to London, England. She has been invited to London for a celebratory luncheon honoring Queen Elizabeth’s 80th birthday. She shares the same birthday with the Queen. She is one of 99 commoners who have been invited. We discover that Georgie is fascinated with the Queen. (BTW most Canadians are fascinated with the royal family.) Through all Georgies careful planning she will not make it to the palace this time.

On the way to the local airport Georgie gets distracted and her car slips off the road, through the guard rail and flips twice down the hillside. Georgie is thrown from the car into the brush. There is no visible sign from the road that an accident ever occured.

Georgie is alone and helpless. When she was a little girl she dicovered her grandfathers 1901 Edition of Grays Anatomy. She memorized all the bones in a human body. Which you will discover that after the first chapter all the other chapters in the book are named after bones in the body. Each bone tells a story from her past.
