And I loved it. I hadn't caught that this was a performance versus an audiobook, so I was taken aback during the first few minutes. But I enjoyed myself thoroughly and can't wait to hear the next one! I see the next one is audio, not performance. I'm slighly disappointed but I'm sure since Penelope Keith is the narrator I'll be happy. I highly recommend this series, this narator and this performance.

My rating is not a comment on the well-respected actors in this performance, it's a reflection of my disappointment when I realized this recording is not the unabridged book read by a single narrator but a short (approx 1 hour) dramatized production for radio. Now I know to check the file details before buying!

Penelope Brings Agatha Raisin to life, I enjoy hearing her so much I only wish they didn't change her out of the audio books. I won't buy any more audio books until they bring her back.
This is a very short production that doesn't do either book justice. Much of the plot lines have been changed and the most hilarious escapade Agatha has had (and I have read them all) does not occur. This is perhaps satisfying as a radio production if you don't know Agatha, but you will be disappointed if you are at all familiar with the Raisin series.
I like the characters that M.C. Beaton creates and I do like to listen to them frequently between some of the much longer much more involved mysteries.
