Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of An Almost Perfect Christmas, written and read by Nina Stibbe.
'I vowed from a young age never to cook a turkey, and I never have - unless you count turkey mince (which you don't). I've seen the damage turkeys can do and the tyrannical hold they have over otherwise robust, rational people and my mother. My mother is not a foodie. But for as long as I can remember, once a year she becomes possessed of a profound and desperate need to serve up a perfect roast turkey. Faced with a walk into the village, though, she might think "oh, f*ck it" and decide to get a frozen one from Bejams on the 23rd and leave it to defrost in the downstairs toilet for not quite 48 hours.'
From dry turkeys to Christmas pudding fires, from the perfect present for teacher to the risks and rewards of regifting, Nina Stibbe offers her inimitable wisdom and humour on the most wonderful time of the year.

A bit dull

Sounded much more interesting when reviewed by “Women’s Hour”. Moments of mirth but generally a bit dull.

Too repetitive, I struggled to chapter 6 & stopped

Nina, I do love your writing but not this time. Too much stopping and starting, alot of pointless listing being narrated.
I'd hoped to learn something new, something to make Christmas less stressful but, I didn't.
