Misleading heading

What disappointed you about Agatha Raisin?

Agatha Raisin, as always, was very enjoyable but at the time I am writing this review, the title of this audible book is The Wizard of Evesham and the Murderous Marriage and that is what the description said was included in this audible book but it's just The Murderous Marriage so it's very misleading. False advertising, really.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I loved the book, I don't love Audible's incorrect description about what was included.

Any additional comments?

Audible needs to update this.

Great fun hearing Agatha acted out!

This is a dramatization, but being a fan of Agatha Raisin novels, I found it quite entertaining. All of the actors are wonderful and my only complaint that it was over too soon!

A good listen - BBC radio version

This is a good listen - ideal for the car, however this audiobook does not contain the unabridged books, but rather the BBC radio plays based upon these books starring Penelope Keith. The radio plays are very good, although obviously much shorter than the books, and Penelope Keith makes an excellent Agatha.

No Wizard of Evesham!

WARNING Don't be fooled into thinking that you are getting two books for the price of one as the Wizard of Evesham is NOT included in this audiobook. For this reason only I have to give the overall mark 3 stars - how can i judge what i wasn't given? It's an odd paring anyway as The Murderous Marriage is book 5 and the Wizard of Evesham is book 8! However, the price for the single book is actually cheaper than a lot of the other Agatha Raisin books, so if you pay for it then you are still getting your money's worth (of course if you bought it with a credit you may well feel that you have been conned).

You can actually tell by the running time of about 6 hours that there cannot possibly be two unabridged books included, and if you look at the book cover you can see that it only mentions The Murderous Marriage.

I see that there is another 'double-up' book on offer (The Curious Curate and Buried Treasure). Again, only the Curious Curate shows on the book cover, and the running time is only 6.5 hours so I doubt that Buried Treasure is also on there but I haven't bought it yet so this is just my surmise.

Anyway, back to the review of The Murderous Marriage, all I can say is that the performance and story both get 5* - Penelope Keith's performance is as good as ever and the book is as entertaining as all the previous ones.
