A Christmas story gathers together in one hilarious volume the gems of autobiographical humor that Jean Shepherd drew upon to create this enduring film. Here is young Ralphie Parker's shocking discovery that his decoder ring is really a device to promote Ovaltine; his mother and father's pitched battle over the fate of a lascivious leg lamp and, most crucially, Ralphie's unstoppable campaign to get Santa or anyone else to give him a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle. Who cares that the whole adult world is telling him, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid." The pieces that comprise A Christmas story coalesce in a magical fashion to become an irresistible piece of Americana.… (més)

Well worth reading to get a slightly different slant on this Christmas Classic. ( )

More of a 3.75. I have the ebook and the audiobook. I listened the the audiobook and it was the most disappointing part of the book. Being used to hearing Jean Shepard's narration, it was a shock to the system to hear someone else telling the story. Especially because their narration was bland and a little momotoned. All of the movie is there--with minor changes here and there. The story switches back and forth between older Ralphie's present day and him flashing back to memories from his childhood. It isn't all one long story based on Christmas like in the movie. It was funny and a little weird considering I have been watching the movie multiple times a year since the 80's. The story of the movie is ingrained in my memory, so it was odd hearing the story as a mish-mash of seperate memories. Not a bad story, though I do regret purchasing the audio version. ( )

This is even better then the movie, even better then listening to Shep tell the story yearly on his radio show. If you enjoyed the movie you really owe it to yourself to give this a read.


The fight

I had woven a tapestry of obscenity that as far as I know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan. And my mother had heard!



Santa

Every evening immediately after supper we would pile into the car and drive downtown for that great annual folk rite, that most ecstatic, golden, tinseled, quivering time of all kidhood: Christmas shopping.



The lamp

That night, for the first time, our home had a Night Light. The living room was bathed through the long, still, silent hours with the soft glow of electric Sex.
