  1. Someone just dropped off my present from the Relief Society It s a copy of The Christmas Box This is almost as bad as when the gift distributed at church on Mother s Day is a pamphlet about how good mothers should behave and then the dads get Snickers bars on Father s Day At least they didn t leave a candy bar for Dan along with The Christmas Box for me this time I bought a copy to read for a book club and when I expressed my opinion as to the merit of this book at said book club, I found myself [...]


  2. I read The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans yesterday afternoon The best thing about it was that it was short I feel a little like Elaine from Seinfeld when she hated the highly acclaimed English Patient There must be something wrong with me That s the only explanation, right Don t get me wrong It s a sweet story A sad story and a good reminder of what is really, truly important especially at Christmas I get the message I gave my babies extra hugs last night.So, maybe my real problem with the [...]


  3. The Christmas Box is a moving story about the meaning of Christmas In this tale, it is children and the time parents spend with their children Time can never be replaced, and time itself is truly the most meaningful and memorable gift of all This story definitely urges the reader to reexamine priorities in life Very beautiful and heartfelt When I wrote The Christmas Box, I never intended to publish the story it was simply an expression of love for my two young daughters, Jenna and Allyson Though [...]


  4. Another heart warming tale that touched me from Richard Paul Evans I finished this book and then logged on to reserved the next one at my library His writing style imparts a simple path to truths that we take for granted His exposure of those truths provide genuine opportunities for emotional awakenings I think his stories are amazing I like his work as much as I have enjoyed Mitch Albom Take an afternoon and reflect on the true meanings he shows us in one of his books You will surely be so much [...]



  5. Usually, I m not the type of person to cry over books If I read something particularly sad, I usually end up sad for a little while, and then I m over it I m not quite sure what it was about this book but I ended up in tears Sure, the ending was sad, but it was beautiful, as well I have a younger brother, so the message that Mary was trying to make really hit home for me about loving what we have because we don t know how much longer we ll have it It s so true that oftentimes, everyone gets caug [...]



  6. I thought this would be corny but I really loved it My full review will be up on my booktube channel at Youtube peterlikesbooks


  7. This was a really sweet book I loved the lesson learned of the true gift of Christmas, and the love that was shared between these people It was a really fast read and very touching, I thought that it depicted the true meaning of Christmas in a wonderful way We have all been given a wonderful gift of eternal life, and we should all acknowledge that fact on than the occasion of Christ s birth.


  8. I m aware that this is now some sort of Utah Cult Classic, but I hated this book It was way too sappy and way to warm and fuzzy for my liking I probably gagged all the way through it No offense to the whole children dying thing that the book was trying to portray, I m super sad for dying children, but

  10. SUMMARY Since it was first published, millions of people have been touched by the magic of The Christmas Box, a holiday classic that is as beloved in our time as A Christmas Carol was in Dickens s When Richard Paul Evans wrote The Christmas Box, he intended it as a private expression of love for his two young daughters, Jenna and Allyson Though he often told them that he loved them, he didn t feel that they could ever really understand the depth of his feelings until they had experienced the joy [...]


  11. Anyone that can read should read this book This book has changed my life in a way words can t describe You will just have to read it and find out yourself.This was the first and only book that has made me cry I don t know whether it was tears of joy or sorrow A little of both I think Makes you think about life This book teaches you the true meaning of Christmas To love and to cherish your family while you still have one For love is eternal.



  12. I m a total sap and bawled through the whole ending It was good, but I was glad it was so short Nice for the holidays.



  13. Before I purchase or read a book that I purchased on a whim, I go to and read a few reviews Typically, a couple of the five star as well as the one star reviews, getting a feel for both spectrums The few negative one star reviews that I read for THE CHRISTMAS BOX, didn t deter me Why they believe the book to not be good wasn t concerning enough The second thing I do is go inside the book and read a few paragraph to get a feel for the authors writing style If there was ever a book I was glad to h [...]


  14. 34 days before Christmas I just finished my first book hoping to start myself feel that Christmas mood I have around 10 Christmas related books in my tbr shelf Some of them, like Jan Karon s Shepherds Abiding and the two other books included in Charles Dicken s Christmas Books were from last year s horde But I picked this one, bought only recently, as my first this year since I read and liked Richard Paul Evan s Grace A Novel a few months back Wiki says that this book, The Christmas Box made Eva [...]


  15. Honestly I thought this book was very unprofessionally written Evans would describe the setting with gigantic words and vivid colors that would jump out to you, but yet he could not describe people s actions correctly I felt like this story was less of a story and of a review All it did was tell It was like reading a book about water marine animals full of fact, lack of showing.For example Jenna looked up sadly Mary paused thoughtfully Mary looked up sadly She asked sleepily Fear seized her whe [...]

  17. Quick read, well written, and convicting as a parent to not get caught up in being too busy all the time, but to make time for our loved ones, especially our children Our children will grow up and we might miss out on their little lives I can see myself reading this again next Christmas.


  18. Really wonderful Christmas story, read 1st time around 20 years ago was just as good now as then, it s about the greatest gift of all for Christmas, recommend this short novel very highly Just noticed that there is a second series, need to order it Have some Kleenex handy.

  21. I read this book quite a few years ago and knew that this was a special author I have read most, if not all, of his books over the years In fact, during a recent move, I parted with most of the books on my bookshelf, but the RPE and the Nicholas Sparks all made the move They are just special books that I love to share with friends and reread over time This time, I read the Christmas Box aloud to my daughter She looked forward to a chapter or two every evening and fell in love with the characters [...]


  22. I never read this book, but I did see past of the movie The woman scares me It all started when I had a dream that I was in the dentist office and I was in the chair and she came in and asked, you want your christmas box I said no, and she started the drilling I remember that she was ugly, and scary and that I was strapped in and she drilled all over the place and there was blood and pain and I woke up in a cold sweat That sense of helplessness is the worst part She will always traumatize me, an [...]


  23. I was a bit disappointed overall It was written well and I have read worse but it came across to me at least as a piece of American Evangelical Christian stories, similar to those Left behind novels that came out a few years ago and therefore I could not connect to it, nor feel very comfortable with it, although the story it self is fairly harmless Not too much to do with Christmas it self either, to do with a family situation.




  24. The Christmas Box is definitely a good read It is a story designed to put the importance of life back into proper perspective.While this tale involves pain and death, it also involves tenderness and a sense of family commitment It is an eye opener to how easily we can become busy as individuals, letting mundane, urgent although necessary tasks replace our important responsibilities.I read this book with my family of six kids from age 9 to 15 and can say that while there were occasional groans, t [...]
