Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Christmas Pudding by Nancy Mitford, read by Kristin Atherton.

The formidable, fox-hunting-obsessed Lady Bobbin has put together a Christmas house party at Compton Bobbin, including her rebellious daughter, Philadelphia; the girl's pompous suitor; a couple of children obsessed with newspaper death notices; and an aspiring writer whose deadly (in more ways than one) serious first novel has been acclaimed as the funniest book of the year, to his utter dismay. And then there is beautiful ex-courtesan Amabelle Fortescue and her group of guests staying in a nearby cottage.... As the house party starts to unravel, so the jokes increase: this is Nancy Mitford's second novel and one of her earliest forays into the world of the Bright Young Things.

Disappointing voices

Not very believable. One-dimensional and overdone to the point of being grating. Is that not yet fifteen words?
