What a story!

I felt a bit silly at first feeling drawn to a children's Christmas book as a 29yo with no kids but man, oh man, Matt Haig can write! If you love Christmas and you love a good whimsical, feel good story with comedic surprises then don't hesitate to give this a listen. There are some dark bits strewn within the book but it makes the outcome so much richer. Stephen Fry does a fantastic job breathing life into all of the characters with his narration. I can't wait to share this story with nieces, nephews and my own kids down the road. This book will be a new Christmas tradition for me!

Loved it!

We loved it. It was a great Christmas story and well narrated. My kids loved all the voices and I thought the narrator did a great job keeping them engaged.

excellent à tout point de vue (pour enfants)

Pour Noël, j'aime bien me faire un truc léger et cette histoire était juste parfaite. C'est l'histoire du père Noël, comment il est devenu le père Noël et c'est super bien écrit et encore mieux lu. La lecture est faite par Stephen Fry et il a une voix si chaude et ronde, c'est un plaisir de l'écouter même quand il fait des voix (alors que c'est un truc que je déteste habituellement). L'écriture de Matt Haig est fluide et enlevée, c'est aussi assez drôle. On rencontre les rennes, les elfes et c'est très imaginatif. Alors attention, c'est un roman pour enfant. J'ai vraiment apprécié mais il faut le garder à l'esprit. Parfait pour la période de Noël en tout cas.

This deserves a movie adaptation.

Of all the origin stories for this mythical figure that exist in movie form, none that I know of comes even close to this. This is original and creative, yet also believable. The characters and events are all down to earth and flow seemlessly but the story does not lack magic. It's just been blended in so well. If Father Christmas was real, this is how he likely would have become the magical figure we know. The relative realism made this such an enjoyable listen, as did the likeable, reasonably complex characters. The narrator is spot-on too. Great job he did. I only wish he had googled how to pronounce the Finnish names--especially the town names. It got a bit distracting to one who knows how, and the correct pronounciation would be easy enough for those whose first language is english. I also think that in the wring the toilet humour was unnecessary and didn't really fit in, but fortunately there was only four points where that happened. But these flaws are not big enough to lose them stars. Anyway, great job from the narrator and a heart-felt, creative story from the author. Matt Haig seems to be at his strongest as a children's author and able to make his stories engaging for adults too. I would listen to this again around Christmas.

A new holiday tradition

I adore this book. This is the fourth time I've read it; it's become a new holiday tradition. Stephen Fry is one of my favourite narrators, and he does a marvellous job with A Boy Called Christmas.
