Hard Going

I normally love the Agatha Raisin series, especially the dramatisations. This narrative is very tedious. I'm sorry to say Penelope Keith's voice in this telling is shrill and waring after about 10mins. As for the dreadful attempt at a Cypriot accent...Oh dear, it's quite painful.

It's OK

This version is a dramatisation of the two stories, featuring Penelope Keith. It's similar ot the other BBC Agatha Raisin radio drama series but not quite as good; fewer character voices and realistic sound effects. This is a huge improvement on the previous unabridged reading of the two titles on offer with Audible. The two other reviews on here refer to the old version.

The Absent Fairies

I notified Audible that this download only contains ONE of these books-- The Terrible Tourist. Athough they gave me a refund, they have failed to update the book title. This is an excellent audiobook; Ms Keith does a fantastic job reading it. But it is NOT what Audible advertises, and they KNOW that this title is falsely represented. If you bought it thinking both titles were here, contact them for a refund as I did. Shame on you, Audible; I thought that you were better than this.

This is an audiobook - not a radio/TV program

Review title says it all.

As noted in another review, only The Terrible Tourist is included - read by Penelope Keith.
.
The title, program type identification and cover art for the offering belong to a different audio.
