Lighthearted and amusing ... but frustrating in places!
on 18 November 2011
A typical Agatha Raisin book, this is lighthearted and entertaining:- it is amusing enough to make you laugh outloud in several places; it is entertaining; it is frustrating (there are certain clues that you wnat to keep reminding them of ... what about the diamonds? Have you forgotten the diamonds?); it is enjoyable; it is irritating (why am I enjoying it so much?); it is fun!
For those of us who have already enjoyed some of the previous books in the series, it is great to see how the characters develop. Tony is stil a valued member of the team, as are Philip and Patrick, Charles, James and Roy; but things have happened in Simon's life causing problems for both him and Tony. Is Agatha responsible? Is she sorry? Was she right to interfere?
For those new to the series, certain characters may need some thinking about, but the lighthearted nature of the book shouldn't make this tough. Basically, think of it as an Enid Blyton for adults and you won't be far off!
The plot in very few words: - the pig at a hog roast is not exactly what was expected; Agatha realises this and then discovers another murder victim; she, her team and her friends are then threatened; investigation is off ... then on ... off ... then on; however, this is not a boring book to listen to! It's fun, entertaining and well worth listening to!
A great way to pass a long journey! Enjoy!
