Book Review: When Elves Attack

When Elves Attack by Tim Dorsey
A Christmas novella about psychopath Serge Storms and his ever baked hanger on Coleman. Serge decides to have some Christmas fun by enforcing Christmas cheer and goodwill by violent means. White trash sluts, horny pensioners, an inappropriate boyfriend, angry mall cops and unemployed middle management will learn to appreciate Christmas or else Serge will get them. This was okay but too sappy in places. Serge has been softened into a loveable multiple murderer after he was a cold serial killer in the first novel ‘Florida Roadkill’.

Best Lines:
“Must have taken hours of work hacking through the drywall with axes.”
“And a demolition saw.”

“Then you pulled a gun on me. Luckily I had pulled mine first.”
