Enjoyed Eddie Izzard's narration for this audiobook. This is really a very enjoyable story. Lots of twists and turns and addictive listening. All the characters were very engaging and I listened to the whole thing in one day.

The only suggestion I would make is on the editing. It would have been better following the last sentence/word, if there had been a short break so the listener could digest the conclusion of the story, as opposed to going straight into credits and dedications etc which spoiled the magic of the piece.

Don't be put off by the title. This isn't a Christmas story but a very well written mystery.

Recommend.

Listened to 'My Girls - A Lifetime with Carrie and Debbie' by Todd Fisher in two days. Outstanding! I laughed and cried and Todd Fisher's narration is simply perfect. One of the best audiobook experiences I've had.

Eddie Izzard's performance for this audiobook is absolutely fabulous. He clearly loves this story and is relishing (I'm still listening) reading it aloud. Highly recommend.

But, the editing is not 100%. There have been several times when a sentence has been repeated and the editor/producer has not deleted accordingly. So not an ideal production but Eddie Izzard's narration is very good.

Sally Fields narration is excellent. Full of heart. A wonderful performance, not just reading the written word. A grounded woman who knows who she is. Inspired me to seek out the movies I haven't yet seen. Highly recommend.

I've listened to many audiobooks & having listened to 'Can't Hurt Me' by David Goggins, perfectly narrated by Adam Skolnick, I can honestly say I have been ruined for any other audiobook.😉 The bonus conversations (audiobook only) are pure gold. Outstanding!

Fabulous ~ A beautiful production that could not be improved upon. Stories that cocoon us and of course Simon Callow's narration is perfect.

Don't be put off by the book cover which undermines the excellent plot and bears no relevance to the story. Listened to audiobook which is hugely entertaining. As well as the excellent comedy and laugh out loud repartee, there is great suspense, drama and mystery. A great listen.
