Misleading heading

What disappointed you about Agatha Raisin?

Agatha Raisin, as always, was very enjoyable but at the time I am writing this review, the title of this audible book is The Wizard of Evesham and the Murderous Marriage and that is what the description said was included in this audible book but it's just The Murderous Marriage so it's very misleading. False advertising, really.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I loved the book, I don't love Audible's incorrect description about what was included.

Any additional comments?

Audible needs to update this.

Great fun hearing Agatha acted out!

This is a dramatization, but being a fan of Agatha Raisin novels, I found it quite entertaining. All of the actors are wonderful and my only complaint that it was over too soon!

Very good book!

Penelope Keith makes it easy to follow along with this book. As usual, I very much enjoyed another Agatha Raisin mystery. I recommend her books to all mystery buffs.

Great Radio Play - Unabridged vs Abridged

Would you listen to Agatha Raisin again? Why?

Narration:
Fantastic! So enjoyable. Penelope Keith just IS Agatha Raisin, and all the other characters are so believable. Highly recommended.

Story:The radio play is (obviously) not going to be as involved as the unabridged book, but it is involved enough to be entertaining and not so involved that you have to pay strict and close attention - nice and breezy. As a radio play should be IMHO.

** Abridged VS Unabridged:

There are a lot of complaints about these being the 'Abridged' version of the books that are listed as 'Unabridged'. So, here's the skinny. Radio Plays often refer to themselves as 'Unabridged' even if the Radio Play itself is an abridged version of the book. What you are getting is an 'Unabridged Radio Play' - the whole play, but not necessarily the whole book.

A number of Radio Plays (including some of the Agatha Raisin plays) are incorrectly categorized as an Audiobook, so they are listed as Unabridged Audiobooks when they should either be listed as an Unabridged Radio Play or (minimally) an Abridged Audiobook.

Weird, yah?

** Finding the Radio Play Collections:

Audible does a TERRIBLE job in organizing them so they are very hard to find.

There are currently 5 Radio Play Collections on Audible (as of now):
- Agatha Raisin: The Quiche of Death and the Vicious Vet (Dramatisation)
- Agatha Raisin: Potted Gardener and The Walkers of Dembley (Dramatisation)
- Agatha Raisin: The Wizard Of Evesham & The Murderous Marriage
- Agatha Raisin: The Terrible Tourist and Fairies of Frylam (Dramatisation)
- Agatha Raisin: The Curious Curate & The Buried Treasure

Some are listed as just Agatha Raisin, without listing the title within the collection. No idea why.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Penelope Keith. Amazingly dry and well-delivered. Just as I imagine Agatha Raisin to be.

Advertised as unabridged and it is not

This book has "unabridged" as its description and it is a dramatic rendition. While it is ok, it certainly does not qualify as unabridged in the classic sense.

There is Only book 5

I am very disappointed there is only book 5. I was expecting to hear two books. This is not good I should be able to have the credit to purchase the book that was not included I am extremely disappointed. Audible says this is the fault of the publisher. I hope Audible will correct this misinformation until the publisher fixes this false advertisement

WHAT FUN

M C Beaton knows how to tell a story. And Penelope knows how to deliver.

Makes me think of my mother!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Recommended to friends because of the extremely "listenable" voice of Penelope Keith and the wit and story-line by the author

What did you like best about this story?

Penelope's voice.....

What about Penelope Keith’s performance did you like?

Friendly voice - seems to always "smiling" as she speaks - an important quality for a reader

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

The very first mention of the words "Mrs Raisin" (strangely enough).

Any additional comments?

This series caught my attention because the name "Mrs Raisin" is the same as my mothers! I always thought while growing up that the surname "Raisin" would be a bit of a cross to bear....but now I see that it is one of which I can be proud! Mrs Raisin is my hero!(Both the literary one and my dear Mum)......Chris Raisin

Genau, wie ich es mir vorgestellt hatte

Agatha als Hörspiel - ich war zunächst skeptisch. Aber es hat mir sehr gefallen, ein Stern Abzug aber, weil es doch stark gekürzte Versionen sind. Aber ich werde mir sicher auch noch ein, zwei, drei andere / längere Rasins gönnen.
