Review | The Santa Exclusive

The cynical Ran Anderson went from amazing pulitzer prize journalist to nasty drunk in no time. His readers, colleagues, and friends are all ready to give up on him. He’s no longer for the people, now he terrorizes the people.

And his next victim is Santa.

He’s been promised an exclusive worth the big man himself, but Ran gets a very different kind of visit…

Hott Review:

Through the first third of The Santa Exclusive I wondered if I’d be able to finish. I picked it up thinking it was a children’s book, mostly because of the cover (I don’t love that you can’t view title info when browsing through your books on the Kindle), and wasn’t finding it appropriate for any children I knew.

The Santa Exclusive conveys very strong Christian messages. The anti-alcohol message is the most prominent but it also mentions charity, selflessness, voting, war, drugs, parenting and others.

Even with the strong messages and alcohol abuse The Santa Exclusive is a very good story. The reader can’t help but dislike Ran yet we still want him to be changed through his experiences.
