Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden: Agatha Raisin, Book 9

Suffering from bald patches thanks to a hair conditioner spiked with depilatory cream - supplied by the murderess in her last investigation - Agatha escapes to the coastal resort of Wyckhadden to allow her crowning glory to recover in privacy. A local witch provides her with hair tonic, and Agatha's lost locks begin to grow - but then the witch is found bludgeoned to death. The elderly residents at Agatha's faded hotel seem innocuous enough, if a little odd. But she turns up an alarming number of secrets....

    "Another Agatha!"
    What made the experience of listening to Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden the most enjoyable?

    They do run along a sort of reliable format...I rather like that. I like the predictability of her stories. Penelope Keith knows when to raise Agatha's voice perfectly, much as I would do in my head were l reading it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Agatha!! There is no-one quite like her and a little bit of her in most of us. She is opinionated, self-serving, but also insecure and above all very, very funny :)


    Which character – as performed by Penelope Keith – was your favourite?

    Agatha!! Has to be, but you must imagine the accent is being affected rather than one she grew up with.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was rather upset that Agatha managed to ruin her chance of marrying a man who seemed to adore her :(


    Any additional comments?

    I love being in Agatha-Raisin land and very much hope that MC Beaton can keep up with me ;)

    "Very Gloomy"

    I really enjoy the Agatha Raisin books and as usual Penelope Keith narrates this beautifully. However I found this story so gloomy and depressing that I am a little cautious about picking another one and finding it the same. please M C Beaton, Agatha Raisen is a character that makes me laugh out loud if I wanted to be depressed I would read Thomas Hardy. Hopefully the next book will be bit more cheery.

    "As always, good fun"
    Would you listen to Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden again? Why?

    Yes, mostly because I have already forgotten the story, and love Penelope Keith's acting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden?

    Eeerm, can't remember


    Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    She is always reliable good - this was as good as her other performances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, the story is very lightweight, untaxing, relaxing, and good fun, but not really gripping.


    Any additional comments?

    A jolly good romp!

    "New man for Agatha"

    Since the Agatha Raisin series is not available in German, I started reading them in English. Penepole Keith IS Agatha. I downloaded a lot of the audiobooks and after finishing one, I cant wait to start the next one.

    I've been waiting how the Agatha / James / Charles triangle is working out - now there's this new guy!
