Review: The Most Boring Christmas Special Ever Written by Rudolf Kerkhoven

Genre: Satire/Christmas


“This Christmas season, give that special someone the gift of tedium.

BUYER BEWARE! Do NOT purchase this book if you are looking for any of the following:
-General merriment
-Religious undertones
-Impromptu group renditions of Christmas carols
-People playing in snow
-A feeling of warmth and/or fuzziness
-Rekindled romance
-Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
-That inner warmth that comes from giving someone the perfect gift

*Actually, Santa may make an appearance.”


The author of several novels, plus the co-author with Daniel Pitts of several choose-your-own-adventure books, Rudolf Kerkhoven lives in the Vancouver, British Columbia area. For more, visit his website.


This is a Christmas story, kind of. It takes place on Christmas Eve, so it must be.

This is a choose your own adventure (or path or whatever) book, kind of. Adventure is singular, not plural.

But mostly this is satire. If you like dry humor… If you’re a bit of a nerdy nitpicker… If you find that people can be confusing… then this book might be satirizing you and I’d say puts you squarely in the target audience. If you can’t laugh at yourself and all that jazz, right?

Yeah, that all describes me. I’ve got the Christmas spirit now. If it describes you, this is the kind of book that will tickle your fancy. Or your funny bone. (If you’re ticklish.)
