Probably not. It's a fun story but once you've read it, there's not much to go back for.
Agatha Raisin is a great character, flawed, funny and larger than life.
Penelope Keith portrays her brilliantly. She's good with the other characters as well but I really focus on Agatha.
The reconciliation between Toni and Agatha, which pretty much happened internally was a good treatment.
The whole story was typical Agatha Raisin, which was what I was anticipating with glee. Agatha never disappoints. She gets herself into ridiculous situations and then always manages to get back out. I love the way she stumbles into fatal events. Also, I like her coterie of pals, the nice Mrs. Blocksby, the attractive-but-distant James, narcissistic Roy, and the noble Charles.
Can't pick just one.
It made me laugh, as I knew it would.
“As The Pig Turns” was an okay book. There were twists and turns aplenty yet somehow the story was a bit flat and somewhat predictable.
If you are looking for something compelling find another book. But if it's easy, light and just for fun you've found it. I thoroughly enjoyed this unbelievable story. The narrator was the perfect choice. A great beach listen. Buy it.
Another fun Agatha Raisin adventure with a few extras. She gets herself into several new and different troubles along with both Roy and Tony having their own adventures this time, too, and James returns!
Mrs Raisin provides the usual brain break and getaway time. This one starting off in her getting a grossly unfair traffic ticket for taking her hands off the wheel while stopped in traffic to blow her nose, then very publicly announcing she would kill the Copper who gave it. When he's murdered in a macabre way within a short time of her threat, she is, of course, suspected along with almost everyone this guy unfairly ticketed. Along the way, it's found he has a lot more money than a simple policeman should have, Tony and Roy get into their own misadventures & it all provides a rolicking good adventure for the listener!
The narrator is not up to Davina Porter's quality and is sorely missed. It took away a bit from my pleasure, but still good enough. I guess Davina's reading has spoiled me to other narrators for these books...
I've read/or listened to them all and look forward to the next in the series. This
one did not disappoint. Fun and witty.
