Hark: A Christmas Collection

We rated this book:


Christmas is generally thought of as a time of year spent with family and friends celebrating good fortune, love, and giving. In Hark : A Christmas Collection by author Justin Bog, you will find six Christmas stories that do not follow the norm. Instead of stories geared towards children that can be read by the fire, this is a collection of unconventional Christmas stories that are meant for an adult audience and are heartfelt as well as though provoking. In each of his six stories, Bog shares the tale of a different person or set of people and what Christmas has come to mean to them over the years. Not are all doom and gloom, nor are they all sugar plums and cookies; however, each will make readers think again about the meaning of Christmas.

Hark is a word that means “to listen,” and it is a perfect title for Justin Bog’s collection of Christmas stories. While not your typical Christmas story collection, Hark: A Christmas Collection offers the view and feelings towards the Christmas season from the perspective of several different people and how they carry this feeling from year to year. From anger, regret, longing, and hope, Bog has created a collection of stories that has the potential to do two things for his readers. Readers can come away from this book more thankful for the things that they are blessed with in their lives. They may also come away with this book with a new perspective about the people around them, both known and unknown, and what they may be going through during this holiday season. A 5 star holiday book that will open the minds, eyes, and hearts of those who are lucky enough to read it. Well done!
