    "First time with this author and this character"

    And I loved it. I hadn't caught that this was a performance versus an audiobook, so I was taken aback during the first few minutes. But I enjoyed myself thoroughly and can't wait to hear the next one! I see the next one is audio, not performance. I'm slighly disappointed but I'm sure since Penelope Keith is the narrator I'll be happy. I highly recommend this series, this narator and this performance.

    "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!

    "I am a huge fan of Agatha BUT"

    This is a very short production that doesn't do either book justice. Much of the plot lines have been changed and the most hilarious escapade Agatha has had (and I have read them all) does not occur. This is perhaps satisfying as a radio production if you don't know Agatha, but you will be disappointed if you are at all familiar with the Raisin series.

    "Always a fun listen"

    I like the characters that M.C. Beaton creates and I do like to listen to them frequently between some of the much longer much more involved mysteries.

    "Entertaining."

    The radio adaptations were my first introduction to the Agatha Raisin series - they are quite well adapted, often amusing and usually well cast. These two stories are adapted from the first two novels in the series, with each novel being shortened to two 30 minute episodes. If you've enjoyed the series on the radio, these are a great little listen for shorter car journeys or the Saturday morning chores.

    "Completely Genius"

    Extremely enjoyable set of 3 short paragraphs in the life of Agatha Raisin. A thoroughly enjoyable "feel good" listen.
