Not as "light," but still Mrs. Pollifax

Would you listen to Mrs. Pollifax and the Hong Kong Buddha again? Why?

I probably would not listen again, although I enjoyed it the first time. I rarely listen to books a second time anyway, but this was a more somber book than the others in the series, and I'd rather move on.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Certain parts were a little too realistic this time around

What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

Always love Barbara Rosenblat. She does such a great job with the characters. In fact, I often search for books that have been read by her, and have found new authors due to her fun performances.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was definitely the audio equivalent of a page-turner!

Any additional comments?

I was influenced by another reader's comment about the book being "darker" than the others, and was hesitant to listen to this one, since the series started out as very "light." However, I'm very glad I did read it. It added some depth to Mrs. Polifax's character, and while parts of it were not what I chose this series to hear, I'm very much looking forward to listening to the next in the series.

Definitely the darkest Mrs. Pollifax.

It had to happen. Mrs. Pollifax gets in deeper in this book and the story is darker. It is still an excellent story, but a bit more realistic than the rest. An agent's life is a perilous one.
