New LibriVox recording
My latest LibriVox recording may be an acquired taste, but was fun to read: Christmas Comes but Once a Year by John Leighton. It is the tale of the snobbish Brown family at Christmas time, 1850, and their experiences with the dubious Captain Bonaventure de Camp, the new tenant of the other half of their suburban villa.
It did make me laugh, even though sometimes I thought the endless sentences of the wordy Mr. Leighton would drive me nuts. In addition, interested in the Victorian period as I am, I was enthralled by this peep into the social life of a well-to-do family in the mid-19th century.
