This story is absolutely amazing. It is captivating and enthralling. However, the unabridged Audible copy of this story is missing two chapters near the end of the second file (as the story is so long that it requires two files). As it is, KEY story ending information is left out. Audible has been informed of this problem and I assume it will be corrected at some time.
Ultimately this is not a story to be missed. However, if you are looking for an unabridged copy of the book, this is not currently it.
Keeping the original narrator from the last 20 or so books. Where's Donada Peters? Or when she can't do it, Penelope Keith? This woman makes it apparent that she has NEVER listened to the previous books' narrations and so her work here does not complement their work. She makes Mrs. Bloxby sound like a stupid tart, her Agatha Raisin delivers none of the hilarious characterisms that make people love her. All around Fail for Allison Larkin.
Couldn't bear to make it through it. I read it instead. Agatha is always my favorite -- she's so flawed and endearing.
ANYONE. But certainly Donada Peters or Davina Porter.
Yes, the actual story is wonderful. Charming as ever, this is another hit for Beaton.
After waiting for this to be released eagerly for a year, Larkin is more than a huge disappointment -- she's a waste of a good credit.
