"There are few double acts that delight audiences quite as much as...Ladies of Letters." (Daily Express)
a great listen that had me wanting more. The interactions of the ladies reminds me of the way my dear mother would be at times with her sister now sadly both departed.
I have never laughed so so much - Patricia Routlidge and Prunella Scales are fantastic in these roles
"Our heroines Jump the Shark"
Ladies of Letters began as a subtle and typically British bit of fluff--correspondence between two older women who become fiercely competitive and occasionally openly hostile even as their friendship deepens. Any lover of British comedy is going to be a sucker for the two principal readers--the incomparable Prunella Scales and the divine Patricia Routledge.
The authors of the series, however, seem to have lost their way in this installment, providing a series of situations that I found preposterous and aggravating rather than endearing and odd--as the previous tales have been.
I'm going to listen to the next installment and hope for the best. If the situations are, once again, bizarre and implausible, I will say farewell to the Ladies and re-visit the brilliant, earlier installments which I consider to be timeless gems.
"Madness and mayhem"
Fun, hysterical , believable
Series is great so to have the ladies involved in more intrigues together is a bonus
Both ladies fitted their characters perfectly. Could not choose between them
Laughter is the best medicine and there is certainly plenty to go around with this listen.
Great to listen to by oneself and to share with a friend
