His generosity is legendary. He has a team of flying reindeer, hordes of industrious helpers, and the love of boys and girls around the world. But what long forgotten, unholy urges are awakening in Santa's mind? Who was he before, and what will he become now? What is driving him into the evil clutches of a certain fairy? Will Christmas survive? Will any of us survive?

I got this book from Sand to pass on to Noumena, but it looked interesting, so I decided to read it before passing it on.

Interesting is definitely a good word for it. This book is definitely not your typical story about Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. It was amusing at times and very disturbing at others. This book is definitely not for the faint of heart.

I'll update this journal entry with a link to my full review as soon as I get it written.

This book is going to Noumena at dinner tonight.

I just scrolled down and noticed that Rhonda added a note. Don't worry sweety.... I was just trying to decide whether to classify this on my end (in my software) as a Ring/Ray or just a Reserved, like any other borrowed books. So Reserved it is, since I expect it doesn't really have a time line attached. :)

Thank you for letting me at this one... I was on a bookring for this awhile back that never made it here so I'm looking forward to reading this eventually, even if it's NOT until Holiday Season 2008! :P

Thanks Rhonda and Ann! And hi to Nessa! ::hugs::

My Review
What do you get when you take the myths of Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny, turn them on their heads, and add in a little bit of naughtiness and perversity? If you said Santa Steps Out: A Fairy Tale for Grown-Ups then you would be correct.

This story is both shocking and titillating, yet funny and reflective. I can't say I found it to be a super read. Perhaps it's because I've read too many great books lately (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Hunger Games trilogy) to feel this was in the same league as those. And though I kept losing interest in the beginning and had trouble getting beyond the first few chapters, I read on nonetheless and found it more interesting as the story progressed, with a bit more of an underlying story going on beyond just Santa doing the Tooth Fairy every which way to Sunday.

I didn't always care for the way the author portrayed some of these characters. It's not because he turned them into highly sexual beings, for I'm not a prude by any stretch of the imagination, but some of their actions seemed a bit forced or cliche to me, almost as if you could tell they were written by a guy, with a guy's fantasies.

I'd definitely say this book belongs in the Erotica genre as opposed to the Dark Fantasy/Horror genre where it currently resides. Though the antics of the Tooth Fairy could well fit into horror at times, the actions throughout the rest of the book. and the language it uses, would definitely categorize it as erotica. And it is that part which kept me reading, and the fact that I found some of the sex scenes kind of hot. ;-)



Rhonda told me she acquired a new copy of this book and no longer needs this one back so I'm gonna share it around. :)
