I do not consider myself to be a "literary" type at all. I look for a story to transport me to another time and place and to entertain me. This book definitely did all the above for me. Additionally, the book is very well written, the characters are multi dimensional and the story is apparently well researched. I love how the class society in England became clearer to me as an American as I listened.

I have not read/listened to them in order but it would have been smart to fill in some of the wholes to start with this one. I enjoyed the stories and the narrator, nonetheless!
light-hearted, excellently narrated
I love her doing different people's accents. She brings the characters to life!
The plot is a little lacking, though.
If you enjoy British lit and mysteries, this book is a delightful combo. The reading was well done w proper English and Irish accents which added more to the story.
I enjoyed this book tremendously and am excited to listen to the others in this series.. The narrator reels you in quickly and the storylines are brilliant.
The story has a lot of interesting insights to the times and lives, but story it self is quite unsurprising and at worst a cliché.
The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life and the most enjoyable part of the book towards the end.
Interesting story. It definitely kept my interest and had many amusing portions. The "spy" role was a minor portion; I kept waiting for more but the main focus revolved around the dead body in the bathtub. Narration was well done. Characters were introduced that I sure will be developed even further in future installments. A light, easy, humorous book worth the credit.
This book was much better than I expected. I enjoyed that the plot took some interesting turns. At first, I found the main character rather annoying, but that changed the further I delved into the book. Definitely a fun quick read.
