    Strangely charming book about what it's like to be a rage filled Jewish single guy at ChristmastimeYou do get jazzed though when you find the absolutely perfect gift for the absolutely right person Like the time I found a duck hunting rifle for Dick CheneyThe twelve dollar designer dress shirt Twelve dollars How do they do it? Who starved to death to make this possible?There's a show called I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant or as I like to call it Jesus Christ Am I an Idiot or What?What it's like to play Santa in a movie There's also something nice about taking off a fat suit and feeling like you've lost weight so that your own fat doesn't seem so fatty any It's a thinner fatWhat it's like to play Santa in a TV show and interact with children It's bizarre at best to be a middle aged Jew dressed up as Santa Claus whose job it is to ask a kid what he wants for Christmas knowing full well you can't deliver the goods I pretty much felt like the head of FEMA during the Katrina crisisNow people say that bread isn't good for you When did the geniuses of the world decide that? Where did they hold that meeting? It's bread for fuck's sake it's the staff of life Where are the Bible beaters now? How come they aren't defending bread's right to be eaten?

    Dear Lewis BlackDespite my rather low rating of this book please rest assured that am a fan of yours But not so much a fan of this bookI thought a book written by an angry Jewish man about Christmas might be enlightening but it just turned out to be kind of annoying I suppose reading your views on a holiday you were never a part of might be entertaining if you didn't completely misunderstand the pointSome of us didn't and don't spend our Christmas holiday begrudging our loved ones for 'making' us shop for presents We didn't and don't all fight the entire time and leave with hurt feelings Some of us actually had great families and great family memories Yep one of the lucky ones right here We do exist The griping wouldn't have been so bad if you didn't phrase your complaints as though they were coming from my mouth I enjoy a good comedy of errors but not when I'm told that the errors are mine when they aren'tSo you see while hoping for a funny holiday read with whitty observations all I got was a grumpy grumble fest I know you warned me Its not your fault That's why I gave you two stars instead of one Well that and the thing about kids and vacation Ha ha ha hakids are the worstI'm not writing you off I'll read another one of your books in the future Don't worryBest RegardsFelinaPS Apologizing for digressing every other page doesn't excuse the digression Focus buddy focus

    It’s weird It’s like hearing my inner dialogue but as a Jewish man I swear some of this book has come out of my mouth and a huge amount has ranted in my brain while my teeth are firmly clamped to prevent it from making its way out into the world How the hell did he get in there? It’s just bizarre It’s like he and I have experienced a peculiarly similar relationship to children I think I might be an alternate reality version of Black but significantly less talented and generous and also having not been raised Jewish or male Seriously Black is a wonderful observer of life and human nature including his own What family goes to Costa Rica for Christmas? Rich people are supposed to take their family skiing in Colorado At least that is what they did when I was a kid Black’s talk about donating money to many charities does remind us that we need to remember our own good fortune when others don’t even have a manager to play in This is an older recording pre Obama era but it all is still timeless

    First a confession I LOVE Lewis Black I love his apoplectic rants on The Daily Show I love his HBO specials I love it when he shocks a laugh out of me So I was the prime candidate for this book However I have to point out as Lewis Black does if Christmas is your favorite time of year leave this book on the shelf Also if you have a problem with profanity leave this book on the shelf However for the rest of us this caustic look at the the Christmas holiday can be very funny Lewis Black is a Jew as he constantly points out and so he looks at the Christmas season as an outsider However he freely admits that the Christmas season deeply affects him in a myriad of ways He rants about the shopping frenzy carols gift giving etc But then on Christmas morning Black sits at his table and writes checks to a wide variety of charities and then goes to the homes of two different friends and eats two complete Christmas dinners from soup to nuts One of the best parts of the book is Black's description of his Christmas USO shows for the troops fighting in the war against terror Obviously he found the spirit of Christmas while touring in the war zone with Lance Armstrong Kid Rock Robin Williams and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

    I'm a huge fan of Lewis Black I listened to this book on Audibles during a recent road trip It is Black's usual rant on the subject of Christmas from the view point of an angry Jew It was good and worth listening to but I like his live stand up better He hits on all kinds of subjects around the holidays including dinner with his non Jewish friends traveling during the holidays with a USO tour to the Middle East gift giving and his love of food

    An irreverent what else would you expect from Lewis Black and somewhat autobiographical story read by Lewis Black himself so you get all the inflections and emotions We listened to this on a road trip and it was very good If you like Lewis Black's comedy you should love this bookaudio book; if you haven't heard Lewis Black before I caution you as he uses profanity and I would not recommend this for non adult persons


  7. Elusive Elusive says:

    In ‘I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas’ the author expresses his thoughts on his least favourite holiday – Christmas With no holds barred this book is certainly not ideal for those who are sensitive and easily offendedDespite not agreeing with every thing mentioned by Black I found the book to be hilariously entertaining from start to finish Upon reading the introduction in which the author provided insight into how this book came into existence I could tell that this was going to be a spectacular read The rest of the chapters delved into several topics such as Christmas of course children and their effects on the author’s vacation family contemporary society fashion the art of gift giving and indulgenceI enjoyed the author’s observations and honesty as he even stated some things that I’m sure many people actually secretly agree with There’s also no doubt that the humour was top notch and unpretentious Although I liked the incorporation of some personal touch into the book I found it unnecessary to repeat that he’s single at sixty one It was irrelevant and not remotely funny I was glad that instead of merely whining about being single the author managed to convey his thoughts in a light hearted mannerOverall ‘I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas’ is definitely not a conventional Christmas book but it provided a fun reading experience


  8. Tyler Tyler says:

    Don't get me wrong I love love FUCKING love Lewis Black But this book is a waste of time Even in the intro Black tells us that he was pretty much bullied in to writing it by his editor and that he has nothing interesting to say about Christmas let alone write Most of what he says has very little to do with the holiday as it does with him being single and 60 and the bullshit that comes along with that I figured at least this would be the Lew I know with him spouting off at the Christians of the world and their absurd religious holidays but no Lew literally bounces off the walls talking about anything and everything whether they actually pertain to the story or not and playing it safe WAY too safe by Lew's standards especially when you consider how amazing this could have been if it was something he actually wanted to write about in the first place Then it all ends abruptly with a short chapter probably the only truly entertaining one in the book on his time in the Middle East performing for soldiers over the Christmas holidays Unfortunately Black remembers almost NOTHING of his time there

    I should preface by saying that I don't hate Lewis Black; I actually agree with him on most topics He's just not a comedian to me or for me That said while I appreciate the topics Black discusses in this book I don't know if I appreciate that he and his publisher tried to pass it off as a Christmas book It takes Black two thirds of the book to reach his first friend for Christmas dinner because he spends most of the book diverting into topics that really have nothing to do with the season
