    "Dramatized Radio Production, Not Unabridged Book"

    My rating is not a comment on the well-respected actors in this performance, it's a reflection of my disappointment when I realized this recording is not the unabridged book read by a single narrator but a short (approx 1 hour) dramatized production for radio. Now I know to check the file details before buying!

    "More please"

    These are marvelous and although they take some liberties with the plots, very worthwhile. I am hoping that more of these BBC productions will become available.

    "Radio play"

    This is performed more like a radio play than a pure audiobook. Penelope Keith is a perfect Agatha Raisin. Very fun.

    "Fun, Fun, Fun"

    Love these dramatizations. I used to wonder how folks could stand to have only radio, but comedy plays really, really well. And these voices are terrific.

    "not an unabridged book"

    I bought several of these and then discovered that they are not unabridged books read by Penelope Keith but very short, very abridged radio programs in which Ms Keith is but one performer. The sound quality is uneven and sound effects distracting. I am very disappointed and would not have bought them if I had known

    "Recorded as a radio show"

    I was disappointed to realize, after I purchased this title, that it was a copy of the book adapted for radio. Lots of different voices, but also lots of very distracting sound affects. Would not ever order this type of recording again.

    "Delightful"

    Another delightful Agatha Raisin adaptation from Radio 4. Feel good booklets to be dipped into at leisure and over all too quickly.
