Weakest so far

The Agatha Raisin mysteries are, for the most part, daft. They're a bit like Sunday night tele. You don't really 'enjoy' them, but you become fond of the characters and sort of end up tuning in over and over. I listened to one out of interest and I've just downloaded book 7. I've even passed a couple on to friends who equally hate to love them. If you're looking for gripping psychological drama, do not stop here. If you like Midsomer Murders and don't mind that the plots are dreadful and there are so many murders, you are pretty much only left with the murderer, you'll love this. Easy to listen to slop.

Not as good as the first three Agatha Raisin books.

Weak and rather incoherent book that feels oddly incomplete, but also as if it was written just to set up a slightly different direction for the stories. Penelope Keith’s narration of book one was reasonably good, book three okay, but her narration of this book was absolutely woeful, particularly of the ever-shifting accents. To be honest, the different narrator of book two does a far better job. Disappointing.

Magnificent

A great story with plenty of intrigue. Agatha's acerbic wit delivered to perfection by the sublime Penelope Keith.

An absolute pleasure.

Agatha and the Walkers....

Agatha Raisin is as always.... good. So is Penelope Keith reading the story. I cannot imagine anyone else doing the dialogue. Agatha reminds me at times of myself.

Character development

So great to see Agatha growing in her attitude to things, especially romance.

One of the funniest scenes ever happens in this book, let's just say it involves a spot on a nose....
