Theo: [Over the CB, as the police SWAT team closes in] “Alright, listen up guys. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring — except for the four assholes coming in the rear in standard two-by-two cover formation”.
Perhaps this line provided the inspiration for author and Die Hard fan Doogie Horner to put together this wonderful Die Hard Christmas Book. We’re just glad he did. Horner takes the familiar story of John McClane’s night in Nakatomi Plaza and recounts it in the style of Clement Clarke Moore’s iconic Christmas poem: “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. Follow John McClane on that familiar journey in a book packed with witty words of wisdom penned by Horner and essential illustrations provided by JJ Harrison.
Come out to the coast, we’ll have a few laughs
An hilariously retold story, Die Hard Christmas relives the dramatic events of that Christmas Eve night at Nakatomi Plaza in a familiar and festive fashion that will have you gripped from page 1. The result is an entertaining treasure of story and illustrations that capture all the thrills and spills of the movie and is an absolute must have for Die Hard fans.
You asked for a miracle
You will be delighted to hear that just like the movie, the Die Hard Christmas book has been packed with machine guns, lots of European bad guys, unsuspecting hostages, an off duty police sergeant and a New York cop in a vest. It might be a well known tale but it never gets tired.
No-one is coming to help you
Through amusing illustrations the characters of Hans Gruber, Karl and his brother Tony and all the familiar baddies are brought to life. The narrative humorously recounts the Christmas Eve events at Nakatomi Plaza, punctuating the poetic style with the indispensable humor of John McClane. Hanging the words on a singy songy “Night Before Christmas” theme is a strong reminder that Die Hard is essentially, a great Christmas Movie. As if there was every any doubt: Now I have a machine gun, ho ho ho.
Die Hard Christmas Verdict
Die Hard is the ultimate Christmas action movie. Such a cleverly constructed homage to the movie, Die Hard Christmas is surely destined to become a true Christmas classic and essential reading for all Die Hard fans. This would make an excellent gift for any Die Hard fan, especially at Christmas.
