I have just finished reading the 7 cassettes of the Ladies of Letters Collection audiobooks. The story is fun, varying and comic to start with. After a few cassettes one feels a repetition of events, even though there is some (dubious) progression in the lives of these two socalled friends and grandmothers. The idea of so many letters as a way of telling a continous fun story gets a bit tedious at times, although entertaining also. There was a slight disappointment in that the two excellent main characters / readers of these audiobooks are too much like their old parts of Sybil in Fawlty Towers and Hyacinth in the TV series, one should have hoped for some greater variey in type and voice. Good fun, but hardly worth the effort to read them all over again.
