Thursday Book Feature: The Christmas Train
Posted on March 8, 2018 by abbiejohnsontaylor
Don’t ask why my group chose a Christmas book to discuss in March. At least you’ll have something to put on your December reading list. Merry Christmas, three months late or nine months early, depending on how you look at it.
The Christmas Train
Baldacci, David.
Copyright 2002.
After being put on the no-fly list as a result of a confrontation with the airlines, journalist Tom decides to travel by train across the country from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles and write about it. In L.A., he plans to spend Christmas with his current girlfriend, Lilia, an actress. Along the way, he meets an eccentric old lady, a retired priest, a movie director, and then his former girlfriend Eleanor. Things get even more interesting when Lilia boards the train in Kansas City. Other events including the discovery of a naked man sleeping in one of the coach cars, a series of robberies, and a blizzard make this a hilarious, heartwarming holiday tale with two interesting revelations at the end.
This was another book that was hard to put down. I was right there on the train with Tom, Eleanor, and the other characters, yet thankful to be safe in my recliner at home when the train encountered an avalanche. I definitely recommend The Christmas Train as a great holiday read.

      Hi, Abbie.

      Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.

      I am doing well.

      I spent Saturday reading, and relaxing.

      Stepped into a hole in the yard, and twisted my stupid hip, back, and leg.

      Aggravated my bulging disks so did nothing much else.

      Reclinerville is good for recovery though and things are a bit better today.

      Very nice review.

      Folks, if Abbie can write such an awesome review, think how wonderfully written her books must be.

      Check her out and, Happy Reading.

      Abbie, your book reviews are some of the best I read. I have you and one other who really send me great reviews. You and Phyllis Campbell are both top-rate reviewers, but I’m betting if others gave it a good jolly try they’d find they could do it too.
