Offbeat, dry humor, great looping interlacing stories. I immediately bought all avaliable audio and written. Not typical, but in my opinion very good, almost great.

This story line is great. I love many of the "broken" inspectors in series. Frost is now in my line-up. It was not boring and I felt the narrator was good for the somewhat comic detective and differentiation of male and female characters.
After Dahgleish, Lynley, Gamesh, Dublin Series. Gabriel Allon and Adrian McKinty, to name some faves, this reading was not a "can't-put-it-down" story for me. The ending had a good finish with some surprises...
But the pace was not fast enough to keep my mind off of the things I try to forget while I'm reading (plugged in)!! I will try Frost #2, though :)

What made the experience of listening to Frost at Christmas the most enjoyable?
All the things which made the television series such a success - Inspector Frost, apparently a bumbling detective with, on the face of it, hardly a clue what is going on juggling several serious cases at once and coming up with most of the answers - to the exasperation of Station Commander Mullet.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Frost at Christmas?
The solving of the "Bank Job".
Have you listened to any of Stephen Thorne’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes, he recorded one of the Poldark books.<br/>Totally different subject matter but equally convincing.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Detection in the raw
Any additional comments?
This is the first of a series of books featuring Inspector Jack Frost which were used as the basis for the television series. David Jason's portrayal of the main character was masterly - a brilliant detective who gets things done despite being completely disorganised with regard to procedures, especially those involving paperwork, who cares far more about getting the job done properly than giving the "right" impression.<br/>Compulsive, can't wait to listen to the next one.

Have read all the Frost books years ago but still really enjoyed the audio experience. Frost is thought provoking, at times amusing and is always chasing from one crisis to another. well worth a listen
