    "Brilliantly read!"

    What a combination - Nancy Mitford and Patricia Hodge! The latter reads this book superbly, capturing the essence of the various characters perfectly. This is the only version 'one' need listen to - the UNABRIDGED one and read by a truly great actress.

    Story
    "Cold Climate - Hot Stuff"
    If you could sum up Love in a Cold Climate in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant, stylish, ironic


    What other book might you compare Love in a Cold Climate to, and why?

    Brideshead Revisited is also an account of aristocratic life in the 1930s. But whereas Waugh was besotted and romantic about it, Nancy Mitford knew it from inside and is mercilesslly ironic without ever being malicious. She can see the end of the lifestyle she describes so brillantly without any of Waugh's tragic regrets.

    It's also nice to come a across a pre 1960 novel that accepts gays.


    Have you listened to any of Patricia Hodge’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, but she is perfect for this book. She also does not use an irritating convention of using a gruff voice for male characters.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh but found it deeply satisfying.

    "Excellent performance, enjoyable listen"
    What did you like most about Love in a Cold Climate?

    The comical timing of the performance


    Would you recommend Love in a Cold Climate to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes to my family, we are almost as ridiculous as the people in this book and I know they would love it.


    Any additional comments?

    I laughed out loud several times while listening to this book. It is very funny and Patricia Hodge's performance is wonderful. I have recommended it to lots of people and will definitely listen again.
