Tedious and long winded, why say something in a couple of sentences that you can say in a couple of pages seems to be authors rule of thumb. Gave up a third of the way through as could feel brain cells dying..

Think more complex than Ellis Peters Cadfael but less convoluted than Susanna Gregory's Matthew Bartholomew. As I said I really enjoyed.. the narrator grated for a little bit but soon got into her stride and did a good job. would highly recommend to fans of the above or fans of PD James, Ruth Rendell or AC but want to try something different and anybody else interested in trying crime a little gentler than the likes of Val McDermott

pleasant book

Its a reasobable book, story quite good and goes at a reasonble pace. Not particularly taxing so great for when listening to while doing other things just not while operating machinery because the narrator is soporific.. not so terrible that you cant dtand listening to him but not a real story teller.

Have read all her books and usually quite like them but found this one long winded and dull.. but most of all am so sick of her shoving her own religious and political views down our throats, to the point that even though I generally agree with her ,am now so tired of it am unlikely to read anymore..

Quite literally its a farce, so if your expecting one of Agathas more sophisticated plots then don't. How ever if you need a book that isnt going to tax your brain but is instead a rip roaring bit of fun then look no further.

The difficulty with reviewing a book like this is that hopefully nobody is purchasing to be entertained and i dont want to be disrespectful to the people who were so dreadfully murdered however I can't tell you whether the crimes described are not particularly interesting or if the soporific narrator is responsible. Either way i wouldnt waste your money/credit

Brilliant as always
