What did you love best about Vicar of Dibley 1?
I loved the TV series and this is an audio only version of the show.
What other book might you compare Vicar of Dibley 1 to and why?
The Good Life and Fawlty Towers are two other BBC televion series transferred to audio exactly as aired with the exception of brief narration. The Good Life and Vicar of Dibley are both very warm and funny.
What about Dawn French’s performance did you like?
Dawn French is able to deliver barbs and sarcasm without a hint of malice, never losing that lovely feeling that she genuinely likes these kooky characters
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I had to ration it out slowly since there are (as of yet) no more in the series.
Any additional comments?
I hope audible will make all of these wonderful shows available soon!

My husband and I love this tv series so much, we probably have it memorized. This is the original show and as I listen i see the characters in my mind and feel like I'm with beloved nutty relatives.
A pretty much straight conversion from the TV series (as far as I can tell) this works surprisingly well on audio only, the warmth and humour come through and it has become one of my favourite repeat listens.
Dawn French is of course wonderful as the vicar but the supporting cast bring to life an array of characters that are both bizarre and endearing and work perfectly in combination with the lead.
My only criticism - I really wish more episodes were available on audible :)

Narrator was as characters were , met expectations and I've listened repeatedly. Just sad the other episodes aren't available. Great story.
