Narration topping, abridgement unnecessary.

Lovely narration - easy to distinguish between characters, and it's a nice change for a Benson adaptation to have a Georgie who is not done in exactly the same camp voice. The abridgement was done very skilfully, it's just a pity they felt they had to abridge it at all; it is so wonderfully written that there is really nothing to cut despite the fact that this is not the best of the novels in the Mapp and Lucia series. In all, a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Wish they didn't abridge the story

Lucia in London is one of my favourites of the Mapp and Lucia books, and I've read it a number of times. while shortening the story they chopped some of my favourite scenes, and a lot of they characterization that I find so essential to fully grasping these characters. Miriam Margoyles did a very good job bringing the characters to life, even though her Georgie came out stiff and a little dull.
