My Thoughts on Back to Christmas

Fast-paced and unputdownable, I finished it in one sitting. I was thinking of reading a few chapters before cooking dinner, but then I got hooked. It’s just unputdownable.

I love the writing style and I love the chapter titles.

“Back to Christmas” stresses the importance of spending quality time with family and how technology, despite its convenience, distracts us from forming meaningful connections with the people around us which I think is a pretty big issue that almost everyone can relate to.

I can’t stop myself from laughing at this: “Amanda, do you remember when we made this one? You were four years old. You thought the glitter was so pretty you dumped the whole jar in your hair.”

I like this line from the book:

“Sometimes, crazy is exactly what we need.” -Santa

I personally like reading the Table of Contents of a book because I think it makes the story more intriguing.

Like Chapter 10 in Back to Christmas having the chapter title, “Do You Remember?” and chapter 12 “I Haven’t Figured That Out Yet.”

It makes me curious as to what the memory is, and as to what he hasn’t figured out yet.

I think that’s one of the reasons that it got me hooked up and wanting to read the next chapter immediately.

That is why, I have added the chapter titles of “Back to Christmas” in this review.

Klaus Movie Quotes



Synopsis:

The two clans, Ellingboe and the Krums, have had centuries long feud which they call “tradition” and they refuse to make peace with the belief that that’s what their ancestors want.

When the new postman arrives in town, he gets mocked because no one uses the mail and so having a postman in town would be useless.

Will the two clans reunite and finally break the “tradition”?

Will the new postman be able to make the residents write letters so he can do his job? How will he do it? Will Klaus help him?

Movie Quotes:

“A true act of goodwill always sparks another.”

“Well, look who’s suddenly a chatterbox. Tell me, what made you squander all those words into that nugget of wisdom?”

“Are we starting to connect the dots?”

“What am I gonna do? Stay forever in this little town? Hanging out with an old woodsman? Surrounded by crazy people? Never wanting anything more?”

“Interesting choice of words.”

“This town was built on resentment and spite.”

“Let go. It’s not worth it.”

“Children are the future.”
