Penelope Keith is a delight. These are fun little stories, when you need to zone out.
I have listened to and enjoyed all the Agatha Raisin BBC dramatisations. However these two dramatisations are definitely the weakest of them all. Pretty thinly plotted and not as entertaining as the others. Still worth a listen though if you need something light!
I love the Agatha Raisin books and look forward to my hour before I go to sleep listening to them. However, the title of this implied two stories The Curious Curate and The Buried Treasure. The publishers review gave descriptions of both stories. Granted, It is unusual to have two stories but this book ended after the first. Am I missing something.
Agatha Raisin is not the finest amateur sleuth and she does find the most inappropriate men but she does have charm. Penelope Keith brings her wonderfully to life and it is easy to get drawn in to the fun as Agatha rushes around looking for clues.
I've never read the printed version
the performance is brilliant with a good cast that bring the audio book to life
only the other Raisin books that are available on Audible
no the overall performance, I prefer cast than just a narrator when it comes to audio books I've re-listened to this several times
I wish they would make more!
"It's a radio show"
This is actually a recording of a radio show. Yet he actors are excellent and demonstrate the strength of Beaton's dialogue. However the annoying fiddle music and the announcer's input are distracting. Even though this version is cheap I prefer the traditional audio format
"full cast audio"
I absolutely adore the full cast show. It is well done and Miss Keith is perfect for the character. The only reason I gave it a four star is that they changed the voice of the original Roy and P.C. Wong. Otherwise I highly recommend it. Just like the old time radio shows.
I love Agatha Raisin mysteries! This one kept me guessing until the end. I highly recommend these mystery books. Wonderfully written.
The narrator is very good. Easy to follow along with. Nice voice.
The narrator is marvellous and she makes this book a delightful bit of escapsim. Amusing and charming read.
Agatha Raisin keeps all the over-fifties challenged to keep excited and involved. Penelope
Miss Keith is the perfect voice for her and her stories.
"i love Mrs. Raisin."
I love her adventures, both personal and detectively. she is quite a unique person. I want to read all her books.
