Publisher's Summary

First broadcast in 2007, Fags, Mags and Bags delivers shop-based shenanigans and over-the-counter philosophy, courtesy of Ramesh Mahju and his trusty sidekick, Dave.

Ramesh has built his shop up over the course of 30 years, and it is a firmly entrenched feature of the local area. He is ably assisted by Dave, a 40-something underachiever who shares Ramesh's love of the art of shopkeeping, even if he is treated like a slave. Then, of course, there are Ramesh's sons, Sanjay and Alok, both surly and not particularly keen on the old-school approach to shopkeeping. However, they are the natural successors to the business, and Ramesh is keen to pass all his worldly wisdom on to them - whether they like it or not....

    "fantastic, funny and warm."

    A brilliantly written comedy about a newsagent/minimarket's staff and customers. Having the writers perform the main characters really helps them come to life and add some great references to sweets and 'Moving Alan' . I listened to the all four series in a day.

    "A lovely sanctuary with a wall of crisps"

    Really funny but also heart warming, genuine, good natured and down to earth, when the world seems a bit much this is one of my favourite haunts and makes me feel everything is going to be okay :)

    Story
    "Like Being In Good Company"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. A friend. Not all of them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fags, Mags, and Bags: Series 1-4?

    An ongoing dialogue and series of events regarding an inflammatory poster in the shop window was not only incredibly funny but poignant and illuminating.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not really applicable here, though I'd enjoy anything produced by these actors, I'm sure.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this evokes the sense of "being there", for lack of a better phrase. The banter is lively and incredibly funny, whether the topic is serious or ludicrous. In some ways, it reminds me a bit of some of the better dialogue in Kevin Smith's film, "Clerks". The format and the cast allow for a bit more sophistication, of course, but you get the idea. It offers such a uniquely entertaining experience that I've quickly become addicted to it and will doubtless listen to it all again. It is both amazing and great.
