A Gift

As I sat and processed AP checks, I just couldn't stop listening. It is a short read, but what a GIFT. Certainly makes one think twice about what we take for granted every day.

True meaning of Christmas

What did you like best about The Christmas Box? What did you like least?

Best - The ending and how the theme of the book really all came together.

The least - The narration was very boring and not captivating.

Would you be willing to try another book from Richard Paul Evans? Why or why not?

Absolutely, I have loved all of his books prior to this one, so I'll just chalk this one up to bad narration.

Was The Christmas Box worth the listening time?

Not really

Great Listen

I have really enjoyed listening to Richard Paul Evans books. This Book really lets you know what Christmas is all about. I think so often times we get caught up in the gift giving and forget the real spirit of christmas.

Too sacchrine

While I'm a sucker for a sweet story - - this one was a little too much even for me. The good news is that it is quite well read.

Even better with time…

Many years back, a friend and I came across this book and over the next couple of years gifted each other the entire series. I bring it out each Christmas with fond memory but never, ironically, manage to make my way through it again, as planned. Honestly, it’s been so long that I forgot exactly what made it so special.

I’m so glad I purchased the audible version of this book! I’m hoping this is the year I can sit by the fire and read it aloud with my girls! Excellent choice for narration. This story is truly a gift.

A Tearjerker Christmas Story

The beloved story of a father being taught what the first Christmas gift really was and what it meant...I listened, and cried, while I decorated my Christmas tree. Well written and well told.

Well read and heart-warming

The narration is well-done for easy listening. This short story is poignant and simple. I enjoyed it and will listen again.
