I liked the first book in the series enough to buy the second but this one is a pile of trash.
The story was interesting and varied but the details about the customs and philosophy of the people added an extra element of interest
I haven't heard this reader before - the voice was perfect.
The characters were very balanced so there were many lines of interest in their stories.
This is a quiet book with some deep underlying philosophy and cultural information. Curl up in front of the fire and forget the stress of your day! Marriage Bureau... belongs among the best "comfort food" stories I have listened to this year.
I needed something to rest my brain after The Guns of August and The Zimmerman Telegram. Agatha Raisin doesn't require any deep concentration or involvement so she made a good change. As usual - you have to suspend belief so the story holds together.
Davina Porter is the "voice" of Agatha - the books would not be so fun without her.
I have listened to many of both and liked most.
A human body mistaken for a pig is just too00000 much!!!
I wouldn't try another book in the series. The action is totally unbelievable. Two prison escapes from Scottish Castles. More bodice ripping than anything else. Davina Porter is a great narrator, she must have been falling under the table from boredom.
Nothing would induce me to listen to another book in the series. Scotland and it's history have been insulted.
I have listened to several Davina Porter's performances. Her performance is good in spite of repetative, revolting content.
It might make a great short story.
It might make it as a dog training manual if you leave out all the human parts. It goes on and on with no story but lots of crude language and unfunny "jests". Both the author and the characters deserve to do a better job of telling the story!
I really did try to listen. Someone is trying too hard to impress. Like being trapped in a corner at a party by a first-year philosophy student.
