Mysteries are difficult to listen to again as you already know the outcome, but I would recommend this book if you want something "light" to listen to that can make your problems seem less important than Agatha's.
This isn't the kind of book to keep you on the edge of your seat, but the plot is interesting and engaging and the ending will surprise you.
She brings the character of Agatha Raisin to life. Agatha is like someone you know that you can't really call a friend but you like her anyway. I would compare her a lot to the Hyacinth in Keeping Up Appearances".
No. This is a book that is easy to listen to as you have time... commuting, in a waiting room, when you have time on your hands.
I like this series because it provides relief from some of the heavier thrillers and action series that I read/ listen to.
March Middleton makes this book. She is intelligent and naive at the same time. The relationship with her guardian makes this a duo you want to hear more from.
That even the best intentions are not a substitute for experience or a cunning understanding of character of 19th century Londoners.
This is my first time listening to Lindy Nettleton. Now, I will make it a point to look for more books narrated by Lindy.
There are moments when you find you are smiling to yourself because you can relate to the situation or the emotion March is experiencing.
I have tried downloading this book several times from my library thinking the download must have been interrupted in the process but no, the book simply stops. No conclusion, no final chapter, no pulling the whole story together. Very disappointing and I find out now it has been discontinued!
Can't answer that until I am able to hear the end of this one.
The performance ebbs and flows... at one time holding your attention and then becoming so mundane your mind drifts off to contemplate other thoughts entirely.
Listening to Donna Leon's books transports me from midwest Kansas to the Italy I have visited and vacationed in. The narration and narrative are both excellent. This is the fifth book I have listened to that David Colacci has read. I think he is a perfect match for the text.
