Completely Genius

Extremely enjoyable set of 3 short paragraphs in the life of Agatha Raisin. A thoroughly enjoyable "feel good" listen.

No audio with this purchase, but sold as audible.

Would you try another book written by M. C. Beaton or narrated by Penelope Keith?

The first book was really enjoyable, Penelope Keith was brilliant I listen to it from a different audio download, that is why I purchased this audio book, as I enjoyed Miss Keith's potential of the character's. But can not download this purchase. Reason given in additional comments column.

What was most disappointing about M. C. Beaton’s story?

Can not give an answer, reason in additional comments column.

Would you be willing to try another one of Penelope Keith’s performances?

Penelope Keith gives a remarkable portrayal of all the characters, she portrays each character differently and you can really imagine the character. First book reference.

What character would you cut from Agatha Raisin: The Quiche of Death and the Vicious Vet (Dramatisation)?

Would not cut any from The Quiche of Death, can not comment on The Vicious Vet.

Any additional comments?

Audio books should not be sold under the pretext that it contains audio. The reason given no audio available at this time, does not solve the problem that I have purchased a book that I cannot listen too. I am a very disappointed customer.

I loved it

Would you listen to Agatha Raisin: The Quiche of Death and the Vicious Vet (Dramatisation) again? Why?

Yes. This is the start of how Agatha moved to the country and got started as a detective etc. I had read a recent book and wanted to go back to the beginning.

What other book might you compare Agatha Raisin: The Quiche of Death and the Vicious Vet (Dramatisation) to, and why?

No idea.

Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Penelope Keith is wonderful. She has a beautiful voice herself; but was able to do other voices too. Very professional.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh in some places but it's more gripping.

Any additional comments?

These are the radio plays; with Malcolm Sinclair adding to the great cast. Love these and hope there are loads more.

Murder and mayhem!

Penelope Keith on top form as the meddling Agatha aided by the long suffering James (in the second tale) in two abridged dramatisations of M.C.Beatons' early Agatha Raisin novels.
Well performed and an absolute joy to listen to.
All too short but so worthwhile! Thoroughly recommended.
